Name: Lifeweb
Guild: Monitors
Status: Regulated
Marking(s): Eyes never close

Lifeweb is one of the thirteen primary Arcanoi from Wraith: The Oblivion. Wraiths who know Lifeweb can use it to strengthen, weaken, or watch over Fetters.

Even though the Monitors' powers revolve around only one aspect of a wraith’s existence, they are surprisingly flexible. Not only can Monitors monitor their own Fetters, but they can examine those of other wraiths at will. Ties to Fetters can be severed, created, strengthened, or weakened. Monitors do not have an ability to directly fight or damage another wraith, but can be potent foes nonetheless.

A Fetter is one of the most important things a wraith can possess, and Monitors know this. Some Monitors choose to focus on the positive aspects of their abilities by helping weak wraiths strengthen what few Fetters they might have, or by keeping an eye on another’s Fetters. Others choose to use Lifeweb as a force of destruction, working to destroy the Fetters of rivals, or to bribe weaker wraiths into forcing them to keep them from taking out one of their few remaining Fetters. Because of the potential for abuse, the Hierarchy keeps an eye on Monitors, although a few have managed to slip through the cracks of the bureaucracy.

A failure to use Lifeweb properly can range from the minor, such as following a bad link to a Fetter, to severe, where a Monitor manages to sever one of their own Fetters from them.
