Aldo will let you know who is very quicky. He tends to be a braggart and an extreme self promoter. He always holds his own interests at heart but that doesn't mean he's entirely stone hearted. He tends to make some attempt to make friends and allies, but he is rather capricious so who knows how long those last for.
Aldo has degree of cunning which he uses or attempts to use to get himself out of situations and create schemes to get himself into situations but to him all that really matter are results, the consequences are not often on his mind.
Aldo is a born criminal, although nothing so noble to be born the son of an a pirate of the old guard nor something as dark and mysterious to be the boy of some crime boss. He was instead the child of a crew of mobile ship scrappers. Roving marauders who tore apart the many derelicts to be found the in North Blue. Occasionally removing who or whatever residents there are to be found onboard before scrapping the vessel and selling what they found when they get to port.
Aldo had to carry his weight on board as soon as he could, His parents couldn't abide by idle hands so he was put to work all tasks they could give him, cutting down riggings and up planks and even assisting in boarding, the boy who was rarely called by his full name, seemingly alternating in being called "Funk" "Mud" and "Boy" had to tightly grip whatever was put into his hands.
Aldo grew up with some resent in his heart, He wasnt full of angst in his teen years. He just wanted a bigger slice of the pie. He wanted to stop being a scavenger and start really making some Belli so he just decided to set out for himself after some harsh words

- General Traits, which encompass everything else.
As a starting character you are allowed to one have professional trait.

Giant Strength (1 Trait): This character's strength is boosted by 15% up to a maximum of 11 points
Fate of the Swift (2 Traits): By placing traits in Fated, you lock them until the next time you earn a trait. You may put as many traits as you have into fated. In the meantime, you get a temporary boost of (# of traits in fated, multiplied by 3) to your agility stat. This does not increase your Will, your technique points, or your max technique rank
