Konti & Judicial Law

Postby Thryce on May 4th, 2013, 2:59 am

Given the gifts of Konti to see truth, is it possible to deceive a Konti specifically in relation to judicial matters? For example, could an individual be falsely accused and punished for a crime or would a Konti, if present, seek to assure the guilt of the individual? Is Syliras the only major city that benefits from the presence of a Konti adviser (apart from the Konti Island itself)?

Thank you!

This would be directly dependent on the Konti and her gifts. Konti gifts are as variant as snowflakes if I can use that cliche, haha, but rarely does a Konti possess a power that allows them to be an out and out lie detector.

Konti gifts can involve knowing someone's name, experiencing a person's happiest (or maybe saddest) moments, perhaps even what their feelings at the moment they make contact with an individual.

Being marked by Avalis does not guarantee such powers either as the first mark only allows a seer glimpses into the past and not the present or future. I am not sure of the Konti in Syliras, and her abilities, but in general a Konti would not be any better at the average Joe at seeing if someone was lying or not unless they were specifically trained to do so, or their gift gave them a knack for it.
