You draw power from a yawning and empty chasm where your hopes and dreams and fears should be.
Phrenic Pool Ability: Wisdom.
Bonus Spells: decrepit disguise (1st), steal voice (4th), cup of dust (6th), enervation (8th), pessimism (10th), disintegrate (12th), waves of exhaustion (14th), greater spell immunity (16th), energy drain (18th).
Discipline Powers: Your emotional malaise combines with your psychic ability to allow you to drain the vibrancy from the world around you.
As a standard action, you can make a melee touch attack to drain vitality from a creature. If the attack hits, the target must succeed at a Fortitude save (DC = 10 + half your psychic level + your Wisdom modifier) or take 1d2 points of Charisma damage. If a creature is affected, the colors of its skin, hair, and eyes dull and become less vibrant.
Whether or not the save is successful, a creature cannot be the target of this power again for 24 hours. You regain 1 point in your phrenic pool each time you successfully drain a creature this way. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to your Wisdom modifier.
At 5th level, your emotions have atrophied such that you rarely have any genuine feelings at all. You gain a +4 bonus on saving throws to resist charm, emotion, and fear effects.
At 13th level, you can drain the color and vitality from the world around you. Three times per day, as a standard action you can drain vibrancy within a 30-foot radius, causing the area and all creatures within it to become pale and sallow. Each living creature in the area must succeed at a Fortitude save (DC = 10 + half your psychic level + your Wisdom modifier) or take 1 temporary negative level as their life force drains away. If you’re at least 17th level, a creature that fails its saving throw takes 2 temporary negative levels instead.
