  • 3 Mantras: Sayings your character lives by
  • 4 Abilities: Unique feats which take great effort to use
  • 5 Skills: Capabilities commonly used to achieve goals

You were born a Sophont, raised within a Provenance, and live within a Banner.
You rely on your Mantle for your livelihood, but it's through the fulfillment of your Mantras that you find inner peace.

I am putting one point into Vitality. Working the mines made all of us tough, but they started calling me Canary because I was the first into any new pit.

I took a shining to the name, so I'll put my second point into Nerve because whenever I get stressed I whistle a pretty song, just like a canary, to keep my mind straight.
