Deviant

Normal is only a setting on machines” is a common phrase but you’ve found that when put to the test it usually falters. Something about you is and always has been fundamentally off, different from your peers. All attempts to overcome this oddness have failed utterly and you have simply come to accept that for whatever reason, you are not like others.

Equipment: Artisan’s tools

Feature: On or Off

Individuals either like you or dislike you. Whenever you meet a new NPC and begin a conversation the GM makes a secret dice roll.

On an odd result the NPC dislikes and fears you, causing you to make Deception and Persuasion checks against them with disadvantage but giving you advantage on Intimidation checks against them.

On an even result the NPC senses your loneliness and likes you, granting you advantage on Deception and Persuasion checks against them but causing you to make Intimidation checks against them with disadvantage.
