Obligation is a Soul Discipline that allows a Kuei-jin to exert control over others. It is a callback to the glory of the ancient Wan Xian and their authority that stemmed from a mandate from the August Personage In Jade himself. While the Kuei-jin have lost this favor and the Wheel of Ages grinds away at Heaven's mandate, some still manage to use their Hun to inspire or dominate the spirits of those around them.

Obligation can not affect a being with a higher Dharma or Hun rating than the user possesses.

    • Authority: By exerting his Hun, the Kuei-jin can assume an aura of natural authority that affects everyone near to him. These creatures also find themselves unable to lie to the Kuei-jin. In the eyes of affected individuals, the Kuei-jin is a person of rank and importance; victims obey him with little thought as to why. Most mortals don't even realize that the Cathayan's authority is supernatural, although wise ancients might suspect, and shen certainly know.
