Morph and Ego Traits
Traits include a range of inherent qualities and features that help define your character. Some traits are positive, in that they give your character a bonus to certain stats, skills, or tests, or otherwise give them an edge in certain situations. Others are negative, in that they impair your abilities or occasionally create a glitch in your plans. Some traits apply to a character’s ego, staying with them from body to body, while others only apply to a character’s morph.
Traits are purchased during character generation. Positive traits cost customization points (CP), while negative traits give you extra CP to spend on other things (see Traits, p. 145). The maximum number of CP you may spend on traits is 50, while the maximum you may gain from negative traits is 50. In rare circumstances—and only with gamemaster approval— traits may be purchased, bought off, or inflicted during gameplay (see Gaining/Losing Traits, p. 153).
