Summary: While you lead, mortal followers with Willpower equal to your Essence or lower will never turn against you. Mortals with Willpower equal to or less than yours will always think well of you.
With this Charm, the exalt can set himself up as a ruler loved and adored by his public. In order to use it, the character must possess some sort of leadership position, although it can be over a group of any size. Any followers who possess a Willpower score lower than or equal to the Solar's permanent Essence are unable to even consider the notion that the Exalt might be flawed — they see him as being the ideal leader in all ways, and would never consider turning against him. Those with Willpower less than or equal to the character's Willpower will still think well of the character in general, but they may choose to turn against his leadership. If they do so, however, all rolls to convince others to turn against the Solar increase in difficulty by the exalt's Essence. Any individuals whose Willpower exceeds the Solar's are immune, however, as are any Essence wielders.
Note that this Charm does not affect anyone who is not actually under the Solar's inf uence; foreigners or members of other groups can still attempt to turn the Solar's subjects against him.
