(Level Two) The Ananasi using this Gift creates defensive spines on his exoskeleton, much like the barbs of a porcupine. These spirts break off fairly easily, remaining in the flesh of anyone who attacks the Damhan in hand-to-hand combat.
The character spends one Gnosis point to activate this Gift. While the spines remain, anyone striking the Ananasi with bare flesh receives a dice pool of aggravated damage equal to the attacker's Strength. This Gift lasts for one scene.
