Default [Powers] Leech with Steal Youth and Accelerated Healing

With unmodified Leech, you gain 1 HP for every 3 HP you drain; with Accelerated Healing it becomes 1:1 rather than 3:1.

I'm assuming that this can be combined with the various forms of Steal (Other Score), and the enhancements and limitation that allows recovering FP in addition to or instead of HP. Wouldn't know why it wouldn't.

With Steal Youth, Leech becomes a totally different ability. For every 2 months (I go with a 1/12 year value) you drain, you get younger by a month.

The question is, can Accelerated Healing be combined with Steal Youth? If so, will it turn this 2:1 ratio into a 1:1 ratio? Or something else? I don't believe it's RAW defined (but it's nut ruled out by RAW either), so ideally an official answer would be appreciated. Thanks!

I would say so, I certainly don't see a problem with it.

That's the way I've used it, and it seems to work fine.

Btb, no. The penultimate sentence in the description of Steal Youth says that it is incompatible with other special modifiers. As a house rule, I don't see a big problem with the idea... SY already seems a bit over-priced to me.
