Moliate sigil
Name: Moliate
Guild: Masquers
Status: Regulated
Marking(s): Soft Corpus

Moliate is one of the thirteen primary Arcanoi from Wraith: The Oblivion. Those who Moliate are able to reshape their Corpus, and the Corpus of others, into fascinating, and sometimes terrifying forms.

The Corpus of a wraith is much more flexible and yielding than mere human flesh. Masquers are those who have the gift of making it softer still and are able to shape it into usable forms. Masquers use this ability on their own Corpus the most, but some hire themselves out to give other wraiths the gift of beauty (or horror) that they could never achieve in life.

Because of their flexibility in appearance, Masquers make excellent spies as they can alter their appearance to replicate another’s perfectly. For that reason, any known Masquers are watched carefully by the Hierarchy, lest they decide to cause problems. Some wraiths specialize in this field, most notably the famous Masquer Slander, who may in fact be several well-trained wraiths and not actually one gifted one.

Failure to use Moliate properly not only causes horrific mistakes, but makes them difficult to correct. A careless Masquer can even cause permanent damage to theirs or another’s Corpus if they are unfortunate enough, though most are lucky enough that the damage can eventually be repaired.
