A powdery kittel curtains their thin shoulders, whose relative bulk along with the keenness of their eye marks them as attentive to this timeplace, and so lower rank than their seeker-kith.

Perfect

Commonly encountered in Ruins, the Jungle and Grit Gate, Novices are weak enemies who can nevertheless pose a major threat to the unprepared. Upon seeing the player, they will use Sunder Mind to begin dealing psychic damage over 10 rounds, inducing a nosebleed after 5 rounds and doubling the total damage on the 10th round.

Tips

This section is opinion-based. Your mileage may vary.
  • Mental Armor (from Willpower) or the Mental Mirror mutation are the only common forms of defense against this attack.
  • Sunder Mind creates a psychic link; breaking line of sight will not stop the damage.
  • Low-willpower characters should try to dispatch the Seeker as quickly as possible.
