Personality:
Specialty: Discredited Academic
Feature: Researcher
Trait: I use polysyllabic words that convey the impression of great erudition.
Trait: There’s nothing I like more than a good mystery.
Ideal: No Limits. Nothing should fetter the infinite possibility inherent in all existence. (Chaotic)
Bond: My life’s work is a series of tomes related to a specific field of lore.
Flaw: I am easily distracted by the promise of information.

Feature: Researcher
When you attempt to learn or recall a piece of lore, if you do not know that information, you often know where and from whom you can obtain it. Usually, this information comes from a library, scriptorium, university, or a sage or other learned person or creature. Your DM might rule that the knowledge you seek is secreted away in an almost inaccessible place, or that it simply cannot be found. Unearthing the deepest secrets of the multiverse can require an adventure or even a whole campaign.
