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:
The ability to send a sharpened projectile into a target with extreme accuracy

DESCRIPTION:
This activity is done for sport, entertainment, and may even be used in hunting, although this requires considerable skill. The size of the target, distance, angle of the throw, and whether the target is stationary or moving are all factors in how difficult it is to connect. The size, condition, weight, and balance of a knife are important, as is the technique used. People use different grips, but the throw will depend on weight placement–a handle heavy knife would be thrown by gripping the blade during the throw, and a blade-heavy knife the opposite. Balanced knives take greater skill to wield. Related skills would be axe-throwing, as well as dart-throwing.

BENEFICIAL STRENGTHS OR ABILITIES:
Good eyesight
Upper body strength
Dexterity and balance
A heightened sense of intuition
