Exalted – Infernals (Scourge Caste)May 18, 2010
The fourth set of Solar Exaltations were given to Adorjan, the Silent Wind (who was once called Adrian, the River of All Torments). Adorjan was (and is) the maddest of the Yozis, filled with equal parts apathy and mania. It is said that the only thing worse than her hatred is her love. Fortunately, she merely accepts the Night Caste Exaltations, now called Scourges.
The Caste Abilities for the Scourges are the same as for the Night: Athletics, Awareness, Dodge, Larceny, and Stealth. Adorjan is silent and still even as she flows like wind, and her touch brings death. Constantly in motion, constantly aware, there is no shelter from her touch should she choose to share it.
The Scourges use her power to spread her love. The birthright of Adorjan is constant motion, and no living being can move so fast as a Scourge. They are like their erstwhile mother, constantly in motion, deadly, silent, and fast. They move like forces of nature, like silent plagues of death.
Scourges are the maddest of the Infernal Exalted, as befits their progenitor. They are the least likely to work toward the Reclamation, and yet even when they are merely indulging their own whims, they are mad whims, destructive and arbitrary, if not random. To encounter a Scourge is to hope that encounter is fleeting, for the prolonged attention of a Scourge must end in death.
