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:
Being able to tolerate higher levels of pain than most people

DESCRIPTION:
A character's ability to suppress pain and keep going is nothing short of heroic, and in many circumstances, is necessary for their survival. Pain from injuries can fog the mind and break the body, so developing a high tolerance level for it can greatly enhance one’s performance and endurance in most situations.

BENEFICIAL STRENGTHS OR ABILITIES:
A strong, fit body
Mental acuity
Commitment to the current action
Belief in oneself and strength of will
A strong need that surpasses all else
Being able to visualize the goal and use it to strengthen one’s resolve
