In both the New and Classic versions of the World of Darkness, all living, undead, and spiritual beings have an aura. A being's aura reflects both their nature (e.g. mortal, mage, or werewolf), as well as their current emotional state. In some cases, resonance or taint can also be reflected in one's aura. The auras of vampires who have committed diablerie are streaked through with black veins.

Many supernatural beings possess some way to perceive and read auras. Examples of these abilities include:

In Dark Ages: Vampire, a vampire's Road (or Path) rating affects the type of aura they manifest. Similarly, in Mage: The Awakening, a mage's aura becomes easier for others to detect as the mage's Gnosis rating increases.

Aura ColorsEdit

The colors change in sympathy with the subject’s emotional state, blending into new tones in a constantly dancing pattern. The stronger the emotions involved, the more intense the hues become.
