Assets And Liabilities

+1 Avoidance: Requires a Charisma rating of 1. You may Exert your Mind to cause someone to ignore or avoid you in a social situation. This grants +2 Outcome instead of +1 when used with stealth rolls.
+2 Tough: Dice penalties from pain are reduced by 2.
+2 Clear Conscience: You have +2 dice on all Trauma rolls.
+5 Jaded: Any attempts to sway your emotions are at a -3 dice penalty, and even if you are affected, you may Exert your Mind to cancel the effect. This includes Fascinate and Emotion Control Effects.
+1 Ambidextrous: You suffer no dice penalties for using the "wrong" hand.
+2 Light Sleeper: You need only four hours of sleep per night, and any supernatural attempts to put you to sleep are rolled at +1 Difficulty.
+3 Trained Reflexes: +2 dice to all Initiative rolls.
-1 Prey Exclusion: If you ever harm or kill a member of the specified class, make a Trauma roll.
Excluded Prey: Clergy & Holy Men of *any* faith
-3 Imprisoned: You are unable to take any significant actions during down-time between games. Harbingers may work out some means of releasing you for the purposes of completing a Contract but they will always send you right back afterwards. Because of this, your starting inventory is limited and you won't be able to keep most items you obtain during games. You also lack access to training materials and will be unable to advance some Abilities.
Manner of Imprisonment: Trapped in the Netherworld
-3 Anachronism: You are at -3 dice to any action that requires you to interact with modern technology.
-5 Outsider: You do not have citizenship in any country, and you have no official identity or license of any sort. You may or not speak a relevant language as your one "given" language (perhaps you only speak an obscure alien dialect, Latin, or some other useless language). You begin each game with 1d10 x10 in cash, max.
