Urban Vigilante

Urban Vigilante - Traits

You have witnessed the worst of what your home's criminal element has to offer and have decided to take the law into your own hands. Are you a nobleman dismayed at the suffering of the lower classes and frustrated that your money alone cannot save them? A street child that witnessed the murder of his family and swore revenge? A lone crusader against a corrupt system? Even a former criminal seeking redemption? Regardless of your traumatic inspiration you now seek justice outside the confines of the law; will you become a symbol of hope for the downtrodden? Or will you become a cautionary tale to strike fear into the cowardly and superstitious criminals of your world?
