GETIMIAN STAND: While you're a mortal, you have a "Stand" - a powerful guardian spirit that stands beside you. You and it share your action, although it always moves with you and you can flurry to have both it and you act simultaneously (otherwise following the rules for flurries). The Stand is always reflexively using the Defend Other action on you unless you don't want it to, and can opt to defend you with its Evasion as well as its Parry. You and your Stand share a single Willpower pool capped at the higher of your two ratings.

Any decisive damage you take, your Stand also takes. Whenever your Stand first takes decisive damage of a certain wound severity (-0, -1, etc) you take a single wound of that type in the first one of those health boxes you have. If you and your Stand are caught in the same area of effect or environmental hazard, you can choose which one of you resists and/or takes the damage.

Getimian Motes: You have a pool of 8 getimian motes, recovering 2 whenever you would recover 5 regular motes. You can spend these reflexively to reduce the target number of any action you or your Stand takes, 1 for 1, to a minimum of 4.

Stabilize Destiny: When some amount of d10s are rolled and read to affect you directly, you can spend getimian motes to reduce the value of those dice. Every 2gm reduces the highest die by one.

BLOSSOM: Having resolved her fractured destiny, Blossom is a unified being with no Stand. Her maximum Getimian motes are increased by her Bureaucracy rating (to 13). She has both her own full Solar essence pool and complement of Charms, and Azula's full Dragon-Blooded essence pool and Charms. Each pool can only fuel the appropriate Charms (either can fuel Evocations or other such universal expenditures), but each regenerates separately by the turn or hour. Blossom has both the Zenith Caste and Fire Aspect animas and anima powers and Solar dice caps.

SHOSEI: Shosei's Stand is the demon lord Octavian. Octavian can use Twilight Caste Solar Charms and cast Celestial circle spells on Eikichi's behalf, and use Infernal Might on rolls Eikichi makes. Octavian also has access to all heretofore discovered Evocations of the Spheres of Spite.

Now that Shosei has recovered access to a full Twilight Exaltation, he has his own normal Essence pool and can't benefit from Octavian's magic.

SASKIA: Saskia's Stand is Ir, Thrice-Traitor. Ir has no Solar magic except Ox-Body Technique, but does have a pool of Getimian motes and, if Saskia commits 5 motes to Ir, all the power of the weapon Iscariot. Saskia can freely and reflexively Defend Other on Ir's behalf.

YING: Ying's stand is Tatsuya. Ying can allow Tatsuya to use Charms that the Exalted Ying would know, but she must spend one Getimian mote for each regular mote Tatsuya uses to power those Charms.

Digital Roots
Azula: 7
Blossom: 5

Saskia: 6

Shosei: 2

Ying: 1
