OriginEdit

At 110 years old, Lazare Ponticelli was the last French veteran to have fought in the trenches of World War I. He originally traveled to France as a child and enlisted under a falsified age, but was transferred back to Italian squadrons when they entered the war. He detested the meaningless death and destruction, moving to Paris and opening a piping company with his brothers. Although too elderly for enlistment in the next war, he supplied the French Resistance through his business.

His war medals were kept within a shoebox and he declined large celebrations for his service. Instead, Ponticelli pushed for his funeral to remember the unknown and common soldiers who sacrificed their lives without recognition.

EffectsEdit

Will recreate the individual auras of killed soldiers, military members and even ancestral warriors for memorial services. They will appear as ghostly apparitions flickering in and out of solidity, wearing their best uniform. All lifetime ranks and posthumous awards will appear on or nearby them, never fading in opaqueness. Focus will be placed on the person most directly related or aware of their history, otherwise they will look towards the nearest memorial marker. The activator will try to diminish the importance of their own life, choosing to ignore their own plights to help others.
