The Aura is an unusual energy that emanates from all living, undead and spiritual beings. It reflects both their nature (e.g. mortal, mage, or werewolf), as well as their current emotional state - in both the New and Classic versions of the World of Darkness


Apart from reflecting the nature and emotional states, the auras also might reflect supernatural characteristics. In some cases, resonance or taint can also be reflected in one's aura. The auras of vampires who have committed diablerie also appear to be streaked through with black veins.

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 DetectionEdit

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

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. A skilled vampire can learn much from her subject by reading the nuances of color and brilliance in the aura’s flow.
