Many of the aspects of your character will be defined in terms of numbers. Some of the most basic of these are known as Characteristics. These represent your character’s abilities in four Groups: Physiology, Combat, Mentality, and Personality. Characteristics represent your character’s raw ability on a scale of 0-100 and on. Characteristics can rise above 100. Your character’s Characteristics are important for a variety of reasons, but principally, they reflect your ability to succeed at certain actions. Since you want to roll under your characteristics when attempting to accomplish your goal, the higher your characteristic the better off you will be.
Characteristics can be upgraded as your character progresses and trains. You can also get technology and better equipment to give special modifiers to each characteristic when rolling.

Characteristics, Modifiers, & Bonuses Edit
Each Characteristic has a number, with higher numbers being far more useful than lower numbers. With each characteristic, there is an accompanying Characteristic Modifier. The Characteristic Modifier (Mod) is the tens digit of Characteristics under 100. For example, a Charisma Characteristic of 54 would have a Characteristic Mod of 5. Characteristics above 99 use the tens digit and the next following digit. So a Characteristic of 110 will have a Characteristic Modifier of 11.
