Hypodermic Quills (Entomologic Pins)
Can remove 1 or 2 "pins" to use like poisoned daggers in combat, inflicting 1d6 extra damage and the victim needs to make a saving throw against poison (DC 14) or take 2d4 additional damage direct to hit points. The poison can also be inflicted using the nightbane's sharpened fingernails/claws (which inflict only 1d4 extra damage). Victims of the drug are at -1 to all combat and perception rolls for 1d4 minutes, these penalties are cumulative up to -5 on further failed rolls from additional hits.

Astral Self (8)
Soul Shield (4)

O.C.C. Abilities and Bonuses:

1. Understand the principles of magic: Sorcerers know and understand the main principles of magic and sorcery, including rituals, symbols, incantations and paraphernalia. This allows them to distinguish between fake "occult" materials and the real thing, as well as to determine the general purpose of specific items and even which supernatural forces are involved. Base Skill: 72% +2% per level of experience. A failed roll means the character does not realize or misunderstands the significance of the evidence, dismissing it as fake or maybe even thinking a forgery or charlatan's scribblings are authentic.

2. Sense Ley Lines and Nexus Points: The sorcerer's senses enable him to see ley lines, which are invisible to normal humans. The character will "see" the faint traces of psychic energy running down the ley lines or seething at nexus points. Range: Line of sight or one mile (1.6 km), whichever is less.

Background Story
Franklin was raised by a lower-middle-class working mother and father in South Toledo. An intelligent child, he did well in school, making him a target for bullies and being accused of 'acting white.' Although he had few friends, his loving adoptive family always made him feel welcome and valued. They catered to his interests, particularly his bug collecting, fantasy novel reading/bad horror movie-watching, RPG-playing, and intense study of history.

In college, he pursued his passion in archaeology, particularly with the people of North and Mezo-America, though also dabbling in the Middle East (because Indiana Jones is cool!). Now he's an underpaid grad student, still living with his parents, taking public transportation.

Oh, also he's a giant, glowing, creepy were-butterfly with supernatural powers. After Dark Day, when he realized magic was real, Franklin immediately began seeking out occult information, eventually being trained by a local 'witch' who frequented an occult bookstore looking for rare texts and saw value in someone with access to the University of Toledo's rare books department.
