Unlike many Discords, Big Green Guy (or BGG) is
intermittent in its effects. It's suggested that the
roots of the condition come from psychological
difficulties in reconciling Novalis' dissonance
requirements and her mission statement, which would
explain why it only manifests in Servitors of Flowers.
Essentially, anyone with this Discord must keep a firm grasp on his, her or its negative emotions: in any situation involving fear or anger, the angel must roll versus Will (at -2 per level of the Discord). Failure to do so results in drastic physiological and psychological changes. The angel's skin will turn green, for a start, and his/her/its vessel will grow by at least two feet. While startling, it's overshadowed by the fact that the angel's Forces will temporarily shift. Every level of BGG will result of one Force being shifted from Ethereal to Corporeal (maximum number of Corporeal Forces remains 6: minimum number of Ethereal remains 1). Furthermore, the shifted angel will react badly to anyone that is actively engaged in harming humanity or the ecology. Needless to say, this includes demons of all types. Duration is usually five minutes for every level of the Discord, or until the angel is knocked unconscious.
Servitors of Flowers are the only angels that have ever exhibited this Discord, despite strenuous efforts to duplicate the effect by more militant Superiors. Novalis' Servitors universally dread acquiring BGG, as it invariably results in even more dissonance. The Archangel of Flowers immediately removes it whenever it comes to her attention, so most long-term sufferers of BGG are usually Outcasts: realignment to another Word (or Falling) merely switches this Discord to another Corporeal one.
