Summary: After study of an object for 30 minutes, specify a condition. When that condition is met, the object takes 4 * Essence damage.
Even the most carefully crafted work of men's hands has some weak point — and no object is stronger than its weakest part. A well-learned solar can pinpoint these weak spots and use them to destroy objects — even priming them to shatter at opportune times. The character must be able to examine the structure for thirty minutes, carefully attempting to locate the most vulnerable point. The character can then apply Essence to that spot in order to cause it to break. Once he does so, he may set a single condition upon which the Essence within that point will ripple through the object, shattering it — for example, "whenever exactly three people are touching the object." When the stated condition occurs, the object instantly takes levels of damage equal to four times the character's permanent Essence.
