From the High Stance (one of the two stances most often associated with Leopard style), Essence guides the character's lead hand and foot, augmenting her counterstrikes when her enemy moves in to attack. The character may add Martial Arts dice to any counterattack attempt. If the character has no way of generating a counterattack, this charm provides an immediate counterattack with a base pool of Martial Arts dice. The counterattack is made after the opponent's roll to hit, but before damage is determined. Only one counterattack can be made against each incoming attack. This charm may not be used against another counterattack.
