The Vail - Land of Superior Elf Folk
Lady Gurlyenn (Confessor)
She Will find the truth!
The power that destroys a person’s personality, when the confessor releases it into the person she is touching makes them fall so madly and deeply in love with her that it becomes physically painful for them to think of displeasing her in any way. They wish only to be commanded by her and fulfill her every wish, they lose all ability to be cunning or deceitful once confessed. Typically once they are confessed and proven guilty they are commanded to die and their heart immediately stops beating.
There is one way to survive a confession intact and it has only ever been done twice. It is never spoken of how the subject survives the confession.
