Character Descriptor and Focus

Aside from the Character Type, you are also defined by a Descriptor and a Focus.

A Character Descriptor is a sort of personality or driving characteristics that define who your character is and how they go about their every action.

You can find more information about Character Descriptors starting on Page 64 of the core book. Below are some of the possible Descriptors.


Your Character Focus is what your character wants and provides benefits that reflect the character’s background history.

Not all Character Foci are allowed, but the general list can be found below. For more information, start on Page 90 of the Cypher Core Book.
