Penance Brand is a spell that creates a brand at the target position. While attached, the brands adds energy to the attached target, which can also spread to a nearby enemy that wasn't energized. When released, the stored energy detonates to deal area of effect converted lightning damage. When energy exceeds the cap it can store on the attached target, the brand releases damaging pulses around it.
