Before the moth, surrendering itself, can reach the embers, flames lick up to consume it. For the rest of the scene, enemies within (Essence) yards of the Moth and Bonfire master who take any attack actions in a given turn must succeed at a Temperance roll of difficulty (Charisma / 2, round up) each turn or devote one such action that turn to attacking the martial artist, splitting their die pools or activating charms as necessary if they want to take more than one action. This is called a moth attack. The first attack on him each turn by any opponent in range who was going to attack the martial artist anyway and fails the Temperance roll is also considered a moth attack.

Moth Attack: Several charms of this style attract attacks to the Martial Artist. These are called moth attacks. The martial artist's heightened awareness of these moth attacks enters the realm of the supernatural, enabling him to respond to any or all of them, even one created by another charm, with a counterattack at his full Martial Arts pool, which is resolved after the moth attack is declared but before said attack is rolled. In other respects this is treated like a normal counterattack, except that if it kills the moth, the moth attack is never rolled. Characters killed by these counterattacks combust; their souls will not walk as ghosts nor their bodies as zombies.
