You are an un-Awakened servant or associate of a mage or a cabal. You are Aware and clued into the Ascension War. Your mage associates may call upon you for aid, for special knowledge or abilities or to assist with magical operations.
You begin with a point of Mage Lore, a point of Lore from the faction you are associated with (Nephandi, Technocracy or Traditions) and the Aware merit. You add one automatic success to any magical effect you assist with. Many mages of your associated faction recognize your status and tend to trust you and may even seek you out for aid.
