Choose the attribute to be affected


By making physical contact with a target, the mutant is able to literally drain points from an attribute and add them to its own score. The target is allowed a saving throw versus radiation to ignore the effects. Although the drain causes no physical damage to the target, any attribute drained to zero will leave the target in a coma until the statistic returns to at least one point. This includes having their Constitution drained to zero. Once the mutation’s duration comes to an end, all points are returned to the original being and there are no harmful side effects.
