Default Leech, Resistable and Mind Shield

My memory and search-fu have failed me. :)

I have a character with Leech (Resistible by Will), that isn't part of anything that Mind Shield normally defends against ... but I want Mind Shield to defend against it. What value of limitation am I looking at, and does it already exist?

Current build: Leech (1 FP per Second) (Accelerated Healing, +25%; Symptom (Ecstasy (Any FP)), +400%; Only Heals ER, -20%; Preparation Required (One Minute) (Conditional), -10%; Resistible (Will) (-0), -30%; Steal FP (Only), -25%; Takes Recharge (15 seconds), -20%; Trigger (Very Common), -10%) [27] (with multiplicative modifiers)

Mind Shield blocks abilities with the Telepathic, -10% limitation, so maybe -5% unless your Leech is also affected by psi-tech?

Giving Leech an appropriate Power Modifier is the first thing I would consider as well. There is also GM fiat... as noted in Powers p62, a GM can let Mind Shield add to IQ, Per, or Will for the purpose of resisting any paranormal influence. I take this as license to just let it aid in defending against whatever the GM thinks it should. A Resistible by Will attack looks like a good candidate for inclusion.
