Concepts - Innate - Instability

The process of Merging with a mortal, and later of Absorbing various Fragments of other creatures’ souls builds up Instability in the Awakened.

An Awakened can reduce their instability by Assimilating some Essence from their Domain.

Total Instability increases an Awakened’s Temptation State.

Instability acquired from each creature type can create side effects in the Awakened depending on the Level of Instability of each type they’ve accumulated (taint).
