Chalk Outline • to ••• (Prerequisites: Torn Threshold, Investigation ••)
While investigating a crime scene which bears one strong aspect of a Sin-Eater's personal demise, they receive a bonus to Investigation rolls equal to the points in this Merit. They inherently know about how a body falls if they once fell that way themselves.
Drawback: Due to opening oneself up to the issues regarding the character's own demise and feeling the emotional resonance of the death they're investigating, the Sin-Eater is more prone toward emotional and mental disturbances (such as being intimidated, attempting to stave off mind control, etc.), and take a penalty equal to the number of dots in this merit to all Resolve+Composure rolls to their resistance rolls for the duration of the scene.
