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:
Having better-than-average recall of facts and experiences

DESCRIPTION:
Whether the character has a photographic memory, eidetic memory, or simply a strong ability to focus on and later relay what one has seen, heard, and experienced, this skill can be applied to many life situations and be an asset at one’s work. With this ability, learning curves can be shortened and less time is wasted. People with this skill can also keep and share knowledge in a more accurate manner, especially in situations where the subject is broad and other ways of staying on top of the information may be cumbersome.

BENEFICIAL STRENGTHS OR ABILITIES:
Strong genetics
Advanced observation skills
Being highly associative, allowing one to store memory better
High level of concentration
Good multitasking skills
Being intelligent and well-read
Having a wealth of experience (through travel and other means) that allows one to acclimate quickly to any environment so one can focus
