If we had access to the ANGEL Corebook, there was also one of my old characters from the playtests: The Magenta Monk of the Silken Eyes
Actually, all it would take would be for you to approve the following Quality from the ANGEL Corebook Nanjin Adept 8-Point QualityWesley: She obviously doesn't see the same way we do. But she can see.
Cordelia: How? Bat vision?
Wesley: In a sense. The human eye is only capable of registering a small portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. But if Brewer were somehow equipped to see OUTSIDE that range . . .
Cordelia: She'd be Superman.
-1.21 Blind Date
The Nanjin is a secret order of cave-dwelling monks from Pajaur, wherever that is. They have developed a mystic method of "seeing with the heart" allowing their adepts to see without needing eyes. A Nanjin trained assassin plucks out his own eyes and relies exclusively on this mystical sense. But self-mutilation is not necessary.
A Nanjin Adept can sense his surroundings, making it impossible to blindside him. Your character is immune to all effects of darkness or invisibility and gains a +2 to all Perception rolls (this is cumulative with any Acute Senses bonus). The Fast Reaction Time Quality is an added bonus (with no extra charge). Finally, the Nanjin's supernatural abilities grant him +2 to close combat attacks and defenses. These benefits are only applicable against living or moving foes.
When combined with the Physical Disability (Blindness) Drawback, a Nanjin-trained character can "see" a monochromatic world around him with enough concentration (reading and close visual work is not possible). In a fast-paced combat situation, a nearby assailant who has no body temperature and does not breathe or move is invisible to a blind Nanjin.
