Ah, so in my true human form I can't apply the protean benefit of Adder Fang Method to my poisonous fangs, but I could apply it when in the form of a dog, bird, or a different human form?
Correct. 10char

Great to hear!
Is Violet similar in theme to previous depictions? Or is it a bit newer?
If you can say of course
We're drawing from the original version, but I think its theme could be given a more cohesive presentation.

If you transform into an animal with mutations, can the mutations qualify you for protean benefits?
A mutation can qualify you. Tells are largely aesthetic, but if tied to a mutation, can qualify you. Note that none of this bypasses the restriction on not accessing Protean effects in your true human form.

Yes.

f so, are the calculations handled in the normal fashion (Dex + Brawl to hit, 10 base + Str for Damage?)
Yeah, it'd be just like attacking with a light artifact weapon while in human form.

Just reflexive.

You can use Single Point and Steel Devil together if you're dual-wielding slashing swords.

The Scorpion Empire's forces make little distinction between land and water.

Perception charm of course
They've already got a fair number of Perception Charms for detecting hidden danger.

The Charm Ambush Predator Style clearly implies you can, but then how does it work since Familiar-Honing Instructions is a Simple Charm ? Do you have to take a flurry to boost the initiative of your familiar ? Or can you consider that if you see the fight coming you prepare it just before it begins ? Or can you only use it to boost initiative of your familiar when you have the upgrade with 3 essence to make it reflexive ?
You'd have to give it the order to attack before rolling Join Battle, usually when you're the one starting the fight.

Yeah. 10char

Is this a charm in the book that makes the reflection a fully sentient piece of themselves?
If so is it being within a specific place a part of the charm? Or was that just a stylistic choice for the fiction?
Also which charm is it of course
It's first and foremost Vanamaithri confronting their violent past. Whether or not that's a literal power they have Charms representing is largely irrelevant.

The main difference is Occult Charms or other stuff that interacts with sorcery.
