Contamination is a class of Transmutations and is practiced by those who follow or once followed the Cobalus Refinement. It is used to detect and manipulate the physical and spiritual impurities in a being.
- Detect Impurity - A Cathar can find a target's Vice.
- Stress Cracks - A Cathar can set a target's emotions on edge.
- Confession - A leading question causes a target to blurt out an answer, no matter how secret they wish it to be.
- Drain Emotions - A Cathar drains negative emotions from a target to gain strength.
- Fever Dreams - Similar to the Pandoran ability, a Cathar can cause hallucinations without immediately losing Humanity.
- Guilt Trip - A Cathar touches a target and learns their innermost secret.
- Remove Inhibitions - By transferring their own impurities with a touch, a target will act on their desires.
- Transfer Torment - A Cathar can pass their Torment on to another, including other supernaturals.
- Eyes of Madness - A Cathar can temporarily inflict a derangement onto a target.
- Plague of Desire - Similar to Remove Inhibitions but does not require touch and can be used on more than one target.
- Quell Torment - A Cathar can use Pyros to temporarily suppress their Torment.
