Mortals and Lesser Templates - Codex of Darkness Wiki

Mortals and Lesser Templates

Jump to: navigation, search

In the Chronicles of Darkness, you play mortal men and women, some of whom have access to supernatural powers.


Mortals have a Morality or Integrity trait, depending on edition.


Humans who have not been tainted by a greater supernatural template have access to some unique Merits. They can also access the universally available list of Merits, including specific Locations and Combat Styles.

Children as described in Innocents have access to variants of some Merits.
