The Ingenium's power isn't natural like most the other clans, and it isn't something they are uniquely born with. All blood powered Ingeniums have a passive instinctual ability called Soul Forge, this ability activates when the user creates or modifies an item they put everything in to, now literally. This item could be a watch a clocksmith put months or years into, or even a glove a leatherman poured his blood sweat and tears into, perhaps a long sword a blacksmith is most proud of. The act of this ability causes the user to forge their own soul into the item, weaving it in and out of the physical weapon causing it to have magic properties and powers.
The powers are a reflection of the crafter and their item and have a very large range of possibilities. The item itself gains a few generic abilities on its own, the soul creating a strong Navi bind.
- Extreme Durability~The item is much harder to break and damage, almost impossible (without permission) this ability however is limited to the size of the item. Don't expect to get impossibly impenetrable full armor.
- Limited awareness~ within 2 miles, the owner of the item has a near perfect sense of were the item is if he has lost it.
- Fate Weave~ if the item leaves 2 miles its navi connection to the owner becomes fate breaking, the item through odd and subtle means is always destined to reunite with the user.
- Soul Reflection~ The item reflects the state of the user, both physical and at times mental. For example, if the owner is very depressed, a pair of brass knuckles may appear rusted and neglected, or if the owner has sustained bad damage, their sword may be chipped and cut up along the blade.
Forced mutation allows a strong connection from the owner back to his soul filled item causing it to transform into a much stronger state, almost fantasy like in appearance, in some case even leaving the physical plane.
Ingeniums literally lack a soul and as such are known to have trouble empathizing with others. They sometimes get prone to depression as many believe that the act of Soul Forging means they peaked in their craft, others however take it as a challenge to somehow achieve something greater, however the fact of something better then soul forging is just a myth.
They tend to be quick to kill due to their lack of empathy and turned into a real law vs chaos group of people, either leaning towards law since their own lack of empathy leaves them needing solid rules to keep them morally right, or they prefer chaos, not worrying about their morality.
