Hunting for deliberately hidden knowledge can be like seeking a needle in a haystack. This Facet ensures that it is so.

The Uratha chooses a single piece of information that he is in the presence of a copy of, and the prey from which it will be concealed. It may be a fact, a specific book, a map, or a timetable for local public transit — anything is fair game.

Dramatic Failure: The Uratha gains the Ban Condition. He must carry a copy of the information that he targeted on him, and must closely examine it or read out a fragment of it each scene.
Failure: The Facet fails.
Success: The prey loses any copy of the hidden information that she has on her person; she drops it without noticing, manages to mislay it, or finds the file on her computer has been corrupted. If the prey seeks the hidden information, spiritual activity and random happenstance conspire against her. All dice pools to reveal or discover the knowledge in question suffer a penalty equal to the Uratha’s Cunning, and research times are doubled. Humans find they can’t quite remember exactly where that house was, or the relevant books in a library are all out of stock at the moment.
Exceptional Success: The penalty inflicted is doubled.
