Trident

[advent class]


Rules governing Advent Classes

A Trident in the flesh is a rare sight in the galaxy, but their reputation tends to proceed them. Their presence is simultaneously serene and intimidating, reeking of raw power. Tridents follow the Path of Rudran, the Roaring Sura, following the flow of the galaxy. Like Rudran himself, Tridents are not satified to simply float along with the galactic currents, instead charging ahead with gusto. Tridents tend to be free spirits, unbound by the shackles of the civilized world

Tridents are capable of forming a ki bond with non-rational creatures, or bonding with created avatars of ki energy. The bond they create allows them to function as a cohesive unit with these creatures. Tridents develop this coordination until they can operate as a single mind

Some Tridents adopt Rudran's appearance, decorating themselves with simple cloth and feathers of grey, brown, and white, with a red scarf. Many Tridents don the red scarf of Rudran. For his part, Rudran does not pay humanoids much mind, but does seem to regard the Tridents as kindred spirits. Tridents believe Rudran protects them from death and harm, a claim that would account for their inexplicable survivability

Description: You form two bonds, one of positive jing (black) and one of negative jing (white).

The avatars are made up of swirling, smoke-like energy, which is black or white in color depending on which jing was used to create the avatar. Bonded animals surge with ki energy which appears like evaporating steam pouring off their bodies.
