As a reaction, which you take when you are hit by an attack you can see, you can create a barrier of distorted time, allowing you to dodge attacks. Until the start of your next turn, including against the triggering attack, you have a +4 bonus to Defense. You can then move up to 1.5 meters without provoking opportunity attacks.
You can expend 1 additional mana or psi to increase the bonus by 2.
You can expend 1 additional mana or psi to trigger the spell when a creature that you can see within 18 meters is attacked. The attacked creature gains the benefits instead, but cannot move as part of the reaction.
