he was Truly screwed.
She was born a Free Lilim, born into Geased chains. She never forgot, and she
never forgave, and she kept her mouth shut and anytime her Mom _needed_
something, there she was, ready to hand.
And finally all the chains were gone, and so was she.
And the next time anyone saw her, so were her horns and skin-tint. Oh, she was
obviously still a Lilim, but she was carrying new chains, chains that led nowhere
but herself, and her wings were as black as a moonless midnight and she
had a Word: the Angel of the Selfless Gift.
One would ordinarily suspect that this would give her the approximate half-life
of, say, nobelium-254. Ordinarily, one would be right. But it appears that
_Someone_ likes her.
Or, perhaps, it is simply that the Symphony _needs_ somone who would give
Dominic a kitten.

Angel of the Selfless Gift. The Only Celestial Wizard.
Self-Geas-6 "I will not surrender to or allow myself to be captured by
the Forces of Lucifer."
Self-Geas-6 "I will not allow any evil to exist unchallenged when it is my
choice, nor will I allow any evil to exist unchallenged forever."
Self-Geas-6 "I will not collect Geasa for my own profit, nor will I charge
where a gift may be given."
Self-Geas-6 "I will never hesitate to piss off people who deserve it."
Angel of the Selfless Gift: Netanya may use her Lilim Resonance without
eye contact. She will only detect needs that lead the recipient to their
Destiny, or that benefit the Symphony as a whole.
If she fulfills a resonance-detected need _and takes no profit_
she will Geas the Symphony instead of the recipient. The Symphony will
pay off ... sometime. When it's really important. Probably.
If the owner of this attunement does not use the "selfless" part of it
regularly, the Symphiny will start activating it at random, and geasing the
holder into fulfilling the detected Needs.
The Only Celestial Wizard: Netanya is the only known Celestial with
Wizardry (q.v.). She has 20 slots for prepared claudications, about
40 points of Mastered songs, and is a Master of both The Speech and
The Knowledge. She has a Mana Pool of 27.
Rites: Spend 2 or more Essence helping another person for no return. (1 Essence)
Netanya can gift others with her Rite, and the Angel of the Selfless Gift
Attunement to other Celestials, but given the _natures_ of the Rite and
Attunement in question, you just know that she'd have to see that you
really Needed it first.
Really Needing something, of course, is not at all the same as _wanting_
that thing. Or as enjoying it, afterwards. But, fortunately, she doesn't
_expect_ your thanks.
Dominic would like to have a little chat.
Micheal just grinned.
Janus was too busy laughing.
Eli thinks she's tres cool.
Lucifer, Kronos, Andrealphus, Baal, Malphas, Asmodeus and Lilith want her
dead, dead, dead, force stripped, soul-killed Dead. Now.
Lucifer is offering a Word, Kronos, Malphas and Asmodeus are offering
Duchies and Baal is offering a Generalship.
Lilith is offering a Geas-6. Per Force. (Nor Hell a Fury, etc.)
Kobal was too busy laughing. We think he was laughing, anyway.
And a small number of Celestials, on both sides of the War, have let it be
known, in a quiet, low-key, only-after-the-lodge-is-tyled way, that they
And Dominic would like to have a small chat. Now. And a bucket of kitty litter.
