Character scan

A Koriani character scan requires perfect, unbiased recall of the subject, down to the smallest details of dress, features, and bearing. Although all Koriani initiates are trained for exact recall, character scans are generally performed only by gifted Seniors.

Character scans are a perilous undertaking: if any details are amiss, the entire scrying and chains of deduction are suspect and useless. The ritual also unleashes a bond of sympathy with the subject under study.
