Hand of the Sun is a rank 4 Children of Gaia gift. It causes the hand of the Garou using it to blaze with heat and light. The Garou may then touch an individual with their hand and mark them permanently, and very painfully, with a brand of shame. Any Garou who encounter the marked individual recognize the mark (which is a circular-shaped scar) as a sign of the bearer's treachery, dishonor, or serious crime. This gift is taught by Katanka-Sonnak. The scar cannot be removed by any means short of amputation. Vampires who are touched with this Gift burst into flame.
