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 win people over

DESCRIPTION:
In a world where so many are worried about being judged for what they do and say, the ability to make fast friends with people is an art form. Some people know exactly what to say to disarm others, opening them up to genuine discussion and honesty.

Being charismatic
