Whenever a catastrophe ends an Age, whoever's wearing these magical trousers at the time escapes. The handful of beings who know of their existence search for them constantly and ruthlessly.
Property: +1 AC (adventurer); +2 AC (champion); +3 AC (epic)
Once per day you can spend an unused icon relationship result to negate the results of any roll: attack, damage, save or skill check.

Quirk: Nervous and easily startled.
