The tindromi cries out in the presence of a sensitive – though its language remains unintelligible, its emotional tone is no different than a person crying out for help. Yet, its pain cannot be assauged – removing the plates results in fatal wounds to the stranger, and no amount of tender stroking can still its struggles.
In fact, the only thing that does quiet a tindromi is physical violence. A battered tindromi wheezes, but seems placated – at least, until their injuries recover, at which point the struggle begins again.
The tindromi does have a potential influence upon sensitives around them, causing magnetic waves to be physically felt underneath the skin for a period of several days to a week. A low level of sensation is present at all times, and though not unpleasant, can grow overwhelming – while a plastic alphabet magnet might elicit a tingling jolt when placed upon the skin, proximity to industrial magnets or other strong fields quickly becomes unbearable. The effect remains constant in its strength until disappearing in an instant, and without lasting symptoms.
The conditions for this effect, however, are impossible to trigger, and thus remain unexpressed in all instances.
