OriginEdit

Matthew Henson was the first African-American Arctic explorer, who served 7 separate voyages led by Robert Peary. Henson served as the navigator, craftsman, interpreter to the native Inuit and the “first man”. On his 1909 Greenland expedition, he, Peary and four accompanying Inuit became the first to reach the Geographic North Pole. In 1937, he was inducted into The Explorers Club for his achievement and became the first African-American member.

EffectsEdit

Increases the user’s skill set when working within a group. The skills gained are pertinent and useful to their present tasks and disappear when no longer needed. If used without a specific goal to be accomplished, the skills manifest randomly. However, the user will become more solitary and distance themselves from the others in the group. When a skill is used, the bird glows blue and tiny frost crystals grow on the surface.
