When you complete the ritual, you touch a willing or helpless creature and see the most defining moments of the creature’s life. The images appear in order from the most important to the least. Your Arcana check determines the number of past scenes you see. The scenes you view are those most pivotal to the creature’s history and are not chosen by any agency. Performing this ritual more than once on the same creature invariably displays the same scenes unless the creature has experienced defining moments since the last time you performed the ritual.
