Corners of the Mouth
Make a wisecrack, quotation from the classics, or other mysterious or inspirational remark. The person you directed this at (within Charm meters, is immediately focused.
You inspire others to be sensual, libidinous, and generous. Whenever you or someone within Charm meters fails an action based on these virtues, you can take a trigger action to give him an immediate reroll. If the original roll was Confident or Stymied it remains so. This applies to most uses of the Charm skill, and to other skills and rolls as determined my the GM.
Basic Action or Finisher
Make an opposed Charm roll, on a success the target loses three shots napping and cannot use his Recon as a defense, using his Reflexes instead until his next shot comes up. This is important when people try to Sneak on him. If the attack scores an Outcome matching the target's Mind, the target does not loose any shots, but cannot take any actions for the rest of the round or until he takes damage or is successfully interacted with. If used out of combat, the target is momentarily distracted and doesn't realize something strange happened. As a Finisher, the target is permanently asleep and the effect is a Curse. This is a suspended animation and reduces the targets physical needs to almost nothing—as the plot requires.
The Master's Voice
If someone else takes a Basic Action to praise you, you can use this schtick to focus. This can always be used in front of an appreciative audience, whose constant praise you thrive on. This can even let you focus when another uses an appropriate stunt against you.
