Traits determine a character's efficiency while at the shelter. Characters can change traits depending on certain gameplay events. When creating a character, players have the option to choose one positive trait. Traits do change character stats. After creation, each character is randomly assigned a negative trait as well.


Traits[edit | edit source]

Positive Negative Effects How to Change
Courageous Cowardice First two attacks in an "attack to kill" are guaranteed to hit/miss. Win fights

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Courageous generally goes well with the "Troubled" stat set.
  • Proactive generally goes well with the "Street Smart" stat set.
  • Resourceful is good to have late game but early on serves little to no purpose.
  • Optimistic is good to have late game but early on serves little to no purpose.
