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 read other peoples’ lips when the words can't physically be heard

DESCRIPTION:
This might be a skill used one-on-one to help with communication between people where one has a hearing impediment, or done on the behalf of an employer who is invested in knowing what is being said when one is too far away to hear. For most story purposes, the lip-reader would want to be able to use his skill without being noticed, so it would be necessary for him to be able to do so from a distance. To meet this need, he might have excellent vision or utilize binoculars or a scope.
