Flawed in a good way

Build the character you want with optional flaws based on your own game experience. Keep getting attacked by Raptidons? Taking the Raptiphobia flaw gives you a debuff when confronting the vicious creatures, but rewards you with an additional character perk immediately.

You will meet a host of characters who will want to join your crew. Armed with unique abilities, these companions all have their own missions, motivations and ideals. It's up to you to help them achieve their goals, or turn them to your own ends.
