Delay of the Inevitable

From DivNull RPG

Like Ox-Body Technique, this charm simulates the durability of the exalted. In this case, the charm represents an exalt’s last ditch defense to overcome catastrophic system shock and even cheat death. Learning this charm permanently bestows additional Incapacitated health level boxes. Should damage begin to claim these additional boxes, the character falls into a fugue-like state that may be easily mistaken for death. Detecting that the character is not actually dead requires a successful Perception + Medicine test at a difficulty equal to the number of additional Incapacitated boxes inflicted.

There are different flavors of this charm for each type of exalted. Generally, these differ primarily in the number of additional health levels they offer.
