You start with +3 HP and gain 3 HP when you choose that perk to level up (instead of 2 HP). You have disadvantage on Smart.
Choose an art: singing, dancing, or playing. You may choose to make the duration of any spell you cast indefinite, as long as you are performing your art (the duration of your spell is 0 as opposed to a number of rounds equal to your level plus the MP you spend). If you choose to do so, you cannot cast concentration spells or attack while performing your art. Your art must make noise audible to all in the encounter to work. You may use Performance in lieu of any Arcana skill with your maleficence or spell checks.
You are a collector of awe-inspiring epic tales and mythical secrets. You start with the skill Lore. You may expend a consumable supply to create an epic recitation (for example: "my father's courage" or "the banshee's song"). For 2 MP, you may recite your epic to all those in a melee space who can hear it. The GM chooses a relevant status or spell-like effect to confer upon the listeners; unwilling victims are entitled to a spell check to resist.
Bare Fists or Feet +4
This maleficence does an extra d6 damage to Undead and Astral monsters opposed to your faith. If this maleficence would deal zero damage, the victim is frightened until after its next action.
Circle of Protection
You bend your maleficence into a protective circle of magic. All those hostile to you or your target must make an opposed spell check to physically enter the circle; its benefits extend to all who remain within its boundaries. The circle does not protect you from ranged attacks or other magic cast from outside it. You must concentrate on working the circle against your opponents for the spell's duration, or else they may pass inside unhindered.
You shape your maleficence into a protective shield. In any given round, you may shield yourself or any single target you choose, conferring a defense bonus equal to the MP expended to cast the spell, up to +3. The shield may also be used to absorb a point of damage for each point of defense it grants against a single target, but is dispelled when the MP invested into it is depleted in this way. This spell can be cast as a reaction if you have not already acted in the round.

I came across Ankti when she'd gotten stuck while searching for something in an old ship. I heard her shouting for help from behind the door that had jammed on her, and managed to open it myself.
