HELPFUL TIP:

When planning a cast member's talents and skills, think about how genetics, personality traits (both positive attributes and flaws), past experiences, environment, and the character's roles (within a family, a community, and society) all factor into what strengths may form. These special qualities should tie into the story, not only to make the character interesting but also to help him achieve his goal.
DEFINITION:
Fitting in with many different people groups and environments

DESCRIPTION:
A character with this talent is able to blend in with others and appear to belong, whether at a socialite party, a corporate event, or on a busy street. A chameleon in any environment, a person with this skill set knows what to say and do, and can fit in easily with different groups. If required, they can also adapt their dress, body language, and mannerisms to appear unmemorable so others will dismiss them quickly as a non-threat.
