Heroic characteristics are special abilities that can be purchased after a character has gained experience from game play. Most heroic characteristics either allow the character access to a new ability or modify an existing ability.


These are special abilities that are dependent upon the character's agility and reflexes. Many provide defensive or movement bonuses.


These are HCs that directly apply to combat. Some are defensive, but most enable the character to perform additional combat maneuvers.
