Peg Legged

One of your legs was bitten off below the knee by a shark when you were just a child and was replaced with a wooden peg leg. You’ve long since gotten used to your prosthesis, however, and take none of the normal penalties from having a peg leg. You’ve had to learn to deal with the pain of your injury as well. Ever since your accident you’ve hated sharks.

Your balance always gets a bit shaky when you get tired or after a few drinks, making you clumsy and prone to falling or being knocked down.

Skill Proficiencies Athletics, and any one skill you learned during your recovery.

Tool Proficiencies Woodcarver’s tools, navigator’s tools

Equipment A peg leg, a book about sharks, a pouch containing 15 gp.

Feature: Old Grudge: You gain advantage on attack rolls against sharks, and advantage on Strength (Athletics) checks when a shark is chasing you.
