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 the ability to intuitively see how things work

DESCRIPTION:
Good with tools and machinery, these characters are adept at fixing things and are often able to take unfamiliar items apart and put them back together again so they work as well as or better than they originally did.
