Thug

You grew up on the mean streets and that makes you a survivor. You might be muscle for a street gang, an enforcer for the mob, or just a hooligan who hangs out with your friends and gets into trouble. You're not a criminal, per se, but you know criminals.

Skill Proficiencies: Athletics, Intimidation
Tool Proficiency: Select two of the following: Gaming Set (any), Automobiles, or Motorcycles
Languages: None
Equipment: A casual wardrobe (including bandanas and hoodies), a tattoo, (a) a baseball bat or (b) a crowbar, a smartphone.

Feature: Thug Life


People fear you. You can get away with minor criminal offenses, such as refusing to pay for food at a burger joint or breaking down doors at a local shop, because no one will report you. You know criminals who can find you work or give you and you can find a place for you and your friends to lay low, either with criminals or with people who are afraid of you.

Suggested Characteristics


Thugs are frightening and presumably violent people who spend time on the streets.
