Following Virgil does not mean you are expected to kill. The Balance can be kept in many ways. Being a Mystic requires far more than mastering spells. Such is the reason that not everyone with triggers is in the cabal. Killing happens all the time and most of the muderers are not labeled as "special". However, I do completely agree with you that there are a special few who have great roleplaying abilities. My hat goes off to the players that stay in character all the time, and have developed a unique personality for their PCs. I wish I would see more of it.
