Summary: Determine the distance and direction of the owner of an object.
In the process of an investigation, one will often encounter an object whose owner one needs to identify; this charm was developed for just such a purpose. In order to use this charm, the character must handle an object for several moments; doing so allows him to determine the identity of the object's most recent owner. In addition, he may make a Wits + Investigation roll with a difficulty equal to the owner's permanent Essence; on a success, the solar learns the approximate distance, within an order of magnitude, that the owner is from his current location: 1/10th of a mile, 1 mile, 10 miles, 100 miles, and so on.
