Bio: Manufactured to mimic the natural toughness of spider silk, this body armor incorporates the holy symbol of a certain demonic spider goddess. The vector manipulation magic on this armor isn’t picky about what mass needs to move in order to avoid a collision trajectory. Often this results in both the wearer and the projectile being moved a shortest possible distance to avoid contact. For an aware target this can look like a well timed dodge, but a less perceptive individual would appear to be slapped by some unseen god’s hand.
