OriginEdit

During the start of his priesthood in Chicago, Casimir Zeglen was deeply disturbed the murder of mayor Carter Harrison, Sr. by a snubbed re-election campaigner. Appalled at the violence, Zeglen began to draft something impenetrable to bullets. He experimented with various clothes and similar materials, including metal, moss even hair. When he discovered tales of silk’s durability, he fashioned an entire vest to be worn over clothing like lightweight body armor. To prove such flimsy looking padding worked, Zeglen would constantly have friends shoot him while wearing the vest, showing his novel invention could stop bullets from point blank range.

EffectsEdit

Will immediately protect any targeted person from injuries caused by gunshots. The bullet, no matter what trajectory or caliber, will be quickly encased in an absorptive shell. It gathers bits of any nearby materials, such as wood, asphalt, plastic and cardboard, and weaves them into a fabric casing surrounding the shot. Most of the destructive energy will be absorbed into the fabric, causing the bullet to directly crumble on contact. However, it redirects any shots towards nearby people, leaving a nasty bruise on the unintended targets.
