  • 強要のペテン師: 3. "Coercing Charlatan": Shinji, due to his prowess in combat, or rather, lack thereof, has to rely on other ways to get his way. Flaunting the range of his power or the power of whoever he works for is usually what gets him his way in any confrontation. (+3 to appliable speech rolls when it involves him boasting the power of the Foundation or their allies and +3 to PERC/MDEF when being lied to or threatened verbally.)
  • 永遠のトレイル: 5. "Eternal Trail": Looking for fossils and tracks in the sand has given Shinji an edge at tracking. Hell, Shinjiro could probably spot someone in a crowd after taking a glance at their photo. He could track someone through a sandy beach, given the exact imprint their shoe leaves. (+5 to PERC and SURV when Shinji is looking for anything he has anything to work off of: footprints, a name somewhere, or a face from a photo.)
  • 広大な教育: 4. "Expansive Education": Schooled by some of the finest tutors money could buy, Shinji knows all about all about etiquette, all about the world's different societies, all about economics, and all archaeology. (+4 to ACAD when it comes to culture, money, and archaeology, only +2 when it comes to fossils.)

Personal History:

Shinjiro was born to a couple of second generation Japanese immigrants. His mom would stay at home and help him with his homework, his father a banker in a small town. They survived for a while. It was a good life. Shinji had all he wanted and more. Nice friends, nice house, nice car, nice food, you name it.

He went to school to be a banker, then. A year in college goes by, studying the art of economics before a trip to a museum had a fossil exhibition catching his eye. The research and, more precisely, the fame appealed to Shinji like nothing else.

That year, he changed his major to archaeology. And studied the ruins, ancient civilizations and their languages. He was the top in his class, too. Despite the exhibition giving him the inspiration to go into archaeology, he only studied about fossils on the side. Fresh out of college with a Ph. D in the study of human history and prehistory, Shinji went off to find work. And so he did, via a Foundation recruitment drive.
