(I've heard that most of Christianity has no concept of past lives, and Keta Kalles has no concept of the afterlife.)

Yes. Christianity does not teach reincarnation. In fact, their central text specifically speaks against it.

The perk could be reskinned into some type of divinely inspired knowledge that allows the Storm Knight to know how to do things they normally wouldn't. A classic example might be a divinely implanted knowledge of language, such as is portrayed in Acts 2.

Joan of Arc springs to mind.

Personally, as much as Faith perks requiring faith adds makes sense, I kind of feel like being faithful in *this* love doesn't necessarily make sense as a prerequisite for being influenced by memories of your previous ones. Really depends on the variety of reincarnation you're looking at I suppose.

Thanks for clarification and all the ideas for reskins.

So, it may be more like Revelation. not limited to past lives...?
