As a ship without a captain never reaches the short, so an incoming attack never reaches its target. After succeeding with a parry defense, the martial artist may redirect an incoming attack to another target of his choosing, as long as the new target is at close range. The attack roll is compared to the new target’s defense, and if it succeeds, damage is rolled as normal.
Mastery: The martial artist may redirect an attack to short range.
Terrestrial: The Exalt must have a higher initiative than the attacker to successfully redirect the attack.
