This Discipline is the proprietary Discipline of the demonic Baali; Baali are not known for their ability to work with others and therefore do not make suitable companions. Their power is that of the Devil himself, and through the use of Daimoinon they draw upon the forces of Hell to demoralize and cripple their enemies. It is for this reason that all Cainites stand united in their hatred of the Baali, whose lust for power threatens to undermine vampire society

Level 1 : Sense the Sin

By making a Perception + Empathy roll against a difficulty of the target's Self-Control + 4, the Baali can sense the subject's greatest character flaw- be it a low Virtue, a weak Will, a Derangement, or whatever.

Level 2: Fear of the Void Below

The Baali must first use Sense the Sin (above) to discern the tragic flaw of the target. She must then speak to the target, telling him of his inevitable damnation and lack of any hope for redemption. If the Baali makes a Wits + Intimidation resisted roll against the target's Courage + 4, the victim will fly into a Terror frenzy; if the Baali scores three or more successes, the target will collapse in a useless panic.

Level 3: Flames of the Netherworld

The Baali may hurl blasts of flame which do one die of damage per blood point spent; the Baali must roll Dexterity + Occult, with a difficulty dependent on range, to hit.

Level 4: Psychomachia

The Baali is able to summon the Beast in an individual. After using Sense the Sin (above) to discern weakness, the Baali can actually coax the Beast to the surface. The victim must roll against his greatest weakness (i.e. lowest Virtue) with a difficulty of 8 or fly into a frenzy; any Derangements possessed by the victim will be in evidence.

Level 5: Curse

By making an Intelligence + Occult roll against the target's Willpower, the Baali may cast a curse on the target. One of the target's Traits, chosen by the Baali, will drop to zero for a duration depending on the number of successes:

1 Success One night
2 Successes One week
3 Successes One month
4 Successes One year
5 Successes Permanent
