Corrosive strands of necrotic energy tear apart the soul of a creature of your choice that you are aware of within range. The target must succeed on a Constitution saving throw or take necrotic damage equal to half its hit point maximum (rounded down), or half as much on a success. A creature reduced to 0 hit points or killed by this damage has its soul permanently scarred, gaining the following flaw.

Flaw – Traumatized: I am damaged, unable to be whole. If I suffer another grievous injury, I may break.
