While this Charm is active, the character must choose between either of the following modes, between which she may switch reflexively when her DV refreshes: a single reflexive full-pool attack she may use at any time until her next DV refresh, or the benefit of a +2 shield/cover bonus to her DV. Regardless of which mode she chooses, she reduces the total DV penalty inflicted upon her by making unarmed Martial Arts attacks by 2. For example, if she made a flurry of three attacks with -1 DV penalties, she would only suffer a total of -1 to her DV from that flurry, rather than -3.
