Description: Piercing Gaze enchants the caster with the ability to see through objects. The spell matrix has two outcomes: if cast on a specific object, it allows you to see what's inside. The harder the object, the more difficult it is to pierce. If cast upon yourself, the penetrating effect is weaker but lingers for awhile, making it useful for stargazing in bad weather.

This spell originates with the Pethians and most display a particular aptitude when casting it.

Effect: "X-ray" vision
Example Messaging: You gesture.

The center of your vision loses its color. Adjusting your sight, you notice that objects you focus on become grey and gain a murky transparency.
