Scion: Straight Outta Memphis
(While it’s been so long that they may not remember it anymore, credit for this Relic must go to Harmony_muse (for the initial idea) and to ConallCurach (for the name). Thanks, guys. :) )
While Relics tend to be ancient, immensely powerful tools, this isn’t necessarily the case. Many divinely inspired inventors, Dwarves living in the modern World especially, take their cues from modern tools, so that their eventual Scion recipients can better blend in without standing out (and potentially incurring Father’s unwelcome attention) . One of these is the modern smartphone: while the Aesir were first, with their I Gallardo device, within the decade most major Pantheons had followed suit, albeit putting their own twist on the devices.
The Pesdjet’s version was a collaboration between the creator-God Ptah and the crypto-God Thoth, the latter of whom was, at the time, particularly concerned by the activities of certain mortal security agencies. To that end, in addition to the feature all such Relics share (nearly- uninterruptible communications and cellular recption, regardless of location, provided that said location is known to the Gods), Thoth added several security measures, such that anyone attempting to eavesdrop on a conversation, read texts or data, etc. between the Relic’s owners and someone else, must first defeat a Cipher (Scion: Demigod, p. 65) created based on a dice pool of 8 (+ 7 auto-successes). If the iTeru’s owner has Epic Intelligence, the Cipher Knack, and a better dice pool, he may choose to use that insted.
