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:
Firing a projectile with incredible precision and accuracy

DESCRIPTION:
In most circumstances, this talent is applied to those shooting guns, because advances in modern weaponry makes it easier to hit one’s target. But with a little creative world building and foundational support, there’s no reason that sharpshooting can’t apply to other distance weapons as well: slingshots, darts, bows, javelins, axes, knives, boomerangs, etc.

BENEFICIAL STRENGTHS OR ABILITIES:
A steady hand
Good distance vision
Being able to remain still for long periods of time
Being mechanically-minded (to maintain one's equipment)
An understanding of physics
High resistance to distractions
Control over one's emotions and thoughts
