d8 Personality Trait
1 I see omens in recent events. Something is happening beyond the veil. We need to be ready.
2 My religion teaches about the supernatural and so far, everything (or nothing) I've discovered lines up.
3 I love going into creepy, abandoned places at night, especially when I'm with someone I can give a good scare.
4 I take my profession very seriously and expect others to as well if they want my help.
5 I enjoy the company of spirits more than the living.
6 I love my gadgets and buy a new one whenever I get the chance, then explain it to my friends, even though they have no idea what I'm saying.
7 I am very professional. If someone didn't know what I job was they might take me for a practitioner of some mundane career.
8 I don't take myself seriously and I don't expect anyone else to either.
d6 Ideal
1 Truth. My profession is filled with charlatans. I do what I can to bring validity to my profession. (Good)
2 Natural Order. Restless spirits cause disruptions to the lives of the living. I try to restore order. (Lawful)
3 Trickster. I know you know that I'm not telling the truth. (Chaotic)
4 Business. People need to deal with the supernatural because it's out there. Somebody's gonna make a buck off of that. It may as well be me. (Neutral)

d6 Flaw

2 I am in constant communication with a spirit who tells me funny jokes at very inappropriate times.
