Charisma sure as heck exists, and sometimes in freaky extremes. My brother has had women, plural, flock to him while he sits on a bench doing absolutely nothing. He just has a strange aura of charisma.
He's socially skilled, but I mean it when I say that he doesn't have to say or do anything for people to be drawn to him.
Unless you want to posit a Sitting skill, he couldn't have been benefiting from anything but a base reaction roll.
Beware, poor communication skills. No offense intended. If offended, it just means that I failed my writing skill check.
