Maugris can read auras. This essentially boils down to him being able, if he bothers, to read one of the following at a time:

- Your emotional state
- Whether or not you're lying. Exact words, so it doesn't pick up lies of omission or talking around points, and doesn't work if you believe what you're saying is true.
- Your creature type - for instance if you're a human, a vampire, whatever, and whether you happen to be magic. Granted, if he hasn't seen one of what you are before, all he knows is that you're something he hasn't seen. He can currently recognize: humans, vampires, werewolves, fae, demons, ghosts.

If you have a very strong force of will, your aura is harder for him to read.

So this is a permission post for Maugris's aura reading! If you don't want him discerning lies or emotions or figuring out what your character is (or at least whether they're what they look like), please do be saying so!

EDIT: Probably should have mentioned this before - aura reading only works in person. Maugris can't read auras over a video chat, any more than he can read someone's aura off a photograph.

Permission granted!

Phantom Girl's creature type will probably register as ??? to him. She is Bgztlian - or an alien from another dimension. She will not register as possessing any magic.

She is totally normal it's everyone else who's weird gosh
But yeah, 99% of the aliens in Legion of Superheroes are just differently colored humans with Powers, aha.

Gonna do this character by character.

Jun Ushiro | Bokurano | [personal profile] icanhearscreams
- Yes for everything. He's a normal human, essentially.

Naoya | Devil Survivor | [personal profile] meaningdies
- Emotional state might be occasionally tricky to pick up but otherwise that's cool.
- Naoya's lies are generally lies of omission anyway. Even when he outright lies though I think it'd be harder to pick up (so like... add a die or two to the difficulty).
- ... Naoya's human technically but his soul is about 5500 years old. So it'd probably register as "human but also ???".

Tsukasa | .hack//SIGN | [personal profile] aurathread
- Emotional state is fine to pick up on.
- Lies are also fine to pick up on.
- He's the avatar of someone whose consciousness is now stuck in that avatar. His class is a spellcaster class, so mage but also human maybe? I'm not sure.

Yosuke Otoha | Karas | [personal profile] bakegarasu
- Emotional state is probably okay to pick up on.
- Lies are fine I think.
- He's got a human soul but it's not in his body, it's in his amulet, so I'm not sure how that'd affect his aura. He's effectively immortal now but it's because of a contract with the will of the city. So it might show up sort of similar to demons maybe? I'm not sure, sob.

Taro Watanabe | Original Character | [personal profile] hachitaro
- Emotional state is fine.
- Lies are fine.
- I believe tanuki are classified as changelings in World of Darkness? So that.

Yeah in general that's fine.

Naoya was reincarnated into this body so no, it didn't belong to someone else. For Tsukasa I doubt the avatar would have an aura of its own since it was just zeroes and ones. For Otoha no, the city isn't a demon (as far as we know) though he does cross over into the demon world easily.

Nano Shinonome | Nichijou | [personal profile] all_wound_up
-Nano's emotions are pretty much an open book, so no problems here.
-She also doesn't lie much and isn't good at it anyway.
-Nano's a robot, so presumably she's not going to show up with any aura at all as she's technically not a living thing. Except for the large wind-up key in her back, she's virtually indistinguishable from a normal human visually speaking, though.

King DeDeDe | There Will Be Brawl | [personal profile] emperor_penguin
-Emotions are fine.
-Lying is fine too - he'll do a bit of this when he's negotiating, but is actually generally pretty forthright with people. I'll let you know if it comes up, though.
-No idea what you want to do about the aura on this one. He's a humanoid penguin creature. I have no clue what that would look like to him.

Fumi Kanno | Devil Survivor 2 | [personal profile] terminally_clever
-Emotions are fine. She's really linefacey and genuinely unemotional most of the time, though, so this sense should be fairly muted for her.
-Detecting lies is also fine. Fumi does more skirting around her points as a rule, but in general I don't mind this.
-Fumi is a vanilla human, though she's had extensive contact with demons. Easily enough for him to pick up on an aura trail. The demons themselves are summoned from her cell phone, but they exist as more of a data construct in there, so I'm not sure he'd be able to passively discern that it's capable of doing so.

From: [personal profile] terminally_clever
Yeah, probably just vanilla human for Fumi, then. She hasn't entered into any specific contracts or anything like that. As for the phone, what it does is take an ambient substance/energy/whatever called Magnetite and uses that to construct what is essentially a copy of a demon in physical form. It's probably more technological than magical at the end of the day, though the program she's using to do it was developed from traditional demon summoning methods originally gifted to humanity by an otherworldly entity. So whatever that would mean, I suppose. It's all fairly vaguely defined.

Okay so:

Desco [personal profile] tyrantball is a demon. Straight up vat-grown bioweapon demon girl. Also, her ultimate attack reveals her true form, which is called Yog-Sothoth so she's at least partially a Lovecraft-style Cosmic Horror. Aside from that, she mostly tells the truth about things and feels the effort of lying to humans is beneath her. She is also inordinately fond of vampires and will offer them sardines.

Kotoha [personal profile] unbroken_chain, meanwhile, is a completely straightforward and normal human girl, with the kind of aura you could expect from a bubbly teenager. On the other hand: she has a full team of six pokemon. Three of them would be normal for Pokemon: a Volcarona, a Samurott, and a Gliscor. I have no idea what the Magnezone's aura would even look like, however. The Zoroark is a shapeshifter, but it's strictly an illusionary ability and his aura wouldn't change at all. Finally, she also has a Lucario who is...also capable of reading auras.

From: [personal profile] unbroken_chain
Human-level intelligence, for the most part, with only Lucario and Zoroark capable of human-style speech. Magnezone is probably a little smarter than the others but has a completely alien viewpoint what with technically being three beings fused into one. Gliscor is the youngest of the team and was caught in the Entree Forest, so she is technically a Pokemon born in the Dream World. Lucario was caught using the Dream Radar and can therefore be considered a mutant warped by the strange energies of a parallel dimension. Dunno if those would show up or not.

From: [personal profile] outofcontrol
Fellow noob! I was the Alex in the test drive thread, and I'm so glad this guy got in. He's fantastic.

Anyway, for Pyro:

Emotions are all good, because he's got a lot of feels (mostly anger, but others will crop up), and he's not very good at hiding them anyway.
Lies are complicated, because he has very Pyro-tinted glasses when it comes to past events, and he really will believe that things went his way or that he was betrayed or something when he reports a story incorrectly. Also, any talk about the superiority of mutants over humans will register as utter truth, but that'll probably just hammer home what a gross supremacist he is.
Creature Type is also complicated, as mutants are just a daughter-species of human, but I think he'd register enough. If you know X-Men, you can just decide for yourself, I'm fine either way.

Well, I can safely say that magic is not involved in the movieverse. It's played as purely genetic. So yeah, just a non-specific non-human sounds like the best interpretation!

From: [personal profile] not_heavens_adam
Whoops, now that I've missed this, maybe I should do it.

Johnny ([personal profile] not_heavens_adam) is what is called a 'True Blood vampire' in his canon which basically just makes him the equivalent to Adam and Eve of vampires, idk if that will change how Maugris sense him or not, that is fully up to you and 'it doesn't' is perfectly fine since different canons and all that. Picking up on his emotional state is fine, as is picking up on his lies. He lies often enough. not as much as in canon because ~development~ but enough

Lanister ([personal profile] jazzandtiramisu) is a demon, straight up. Since he lies about how he's feeling anyway, picking up on his emotions is fine, and his lies are fair game as well. Although, he does do more of an 'by omission' thing than outright lying.

Sounds good! Johnny wouldn't say anything about it anyway, he thinks it's stupid.

While I'm here, and since I don't actually have a permission's post, I should warn you that Johnny is very touchy and doesn't always respect personal space. If he does that to Maugris and his reaction would to be to punch him or something, go for it.

primordial: (and how i walk and wander)
From: [personal profile] primordial
Sam Erstwhile AKA WHERE DO I START

Well, he's definitely not human. (He once was and still has a human mind, so Maugris could pick up on that.) He's a moderately powerful Lovecraftian horror creature thing that breaks people's minds if he actually shows his true form. Therefore, he might be a rather resistant to aura reading. (I would imagine that Maugris would see it "glitching"- like a normal-sized aura occasionally going weird and becoming larger and very inhuman-shaped, and then back to normal within the span of a few seconds.) No magic, though! He's completely biological in nature, though a bit extra-dimensional in terms of existence.

However! You can totally pick up on his emotional state, and while his lies would be pretty hard to pick out (he's an experienced liar and often just twists the truth a bit to use for his own good or just lies by omission), his more blatant ones could be probably be identified.

if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!

And in return, some permissions from me.

By default, Meetra would be hard to read since she's got a heroic amount of willpower and doesn't like having her mind read. In a distracted or unguarded moment, though, she'd definitely register as human and magical, albeit with something seriously, seriously wrong with her magic. Probably something too subtle to really describe unless he had another Jedi to compare her to, but definitely weird.

Oh, and checking for emotions or lies is fine too, at least when it's obvious she's lost her composure.

echo_of_a_jedi: (every single cutscene)
From: [personal profile] echo_of_a_jedi
Given that the Force is pretty specific to living things, I think she'd probably detect that, or even not be able to sense him at all. On the other hand, he's still got the blood of living creatures animating him, and Star Wars is absent any proper undead aside from Force Ghosts, so I'm not really sure.

And the way I look at her Issues is basically that, if Jedi had an ability as refined and specific as Auspex aura reading (they don't), Meetra would look to them like a diablerist would look to Maugris. Since Maugris doesn't really have any basis of comparison or the gut reflexive revulsion he'd have to diablerie, she'll probably just look really weird compared to a mage or any other Jedi.

But those are the fun ones. And by fun I mean bat-guano crazy on levels that most Vampires only dream of.
