Characters are the individuals assigned to an Astrobase. Characters can be assigned jobs using the Duty Roster. Characters do not have standard levels and instead gain experience in whatever task they are assigned. To individualize characters, each can have up to 4 special Personality Traits from a pool of 280.
Races are created using the Bioscope where their name and stats can be defined. Stats are defined similar to standard tabletop RPGs. Special race traits can be assigned to races.
