2 I have a bad history with cows. No cow is good. Dead cows are better.
3 I used to be a cow. No, seriously.
4 Once, when I was young, a cow aided me. Since that time I have aided them whenever I can. I will never forget her kind eyes.
5 Once, when I was young, a cow wronged me. Hell won’t prevent me from exacting my just retribution from the humility.

d6 Flaw
1 I am so consumed in my hatred of cows that I will ignore all other threats if I detect the presence of a cow.
2 Cows fascinate me. I will stop whatever I am doing if I see one in order to actively point out cows to my companions.
3 I seek a very specific cow, and will stop whatever I am doing to actively pursue that cow if I learn she is near.
4 I scream “Cow” as loud as possible at the most inopportune moments or when I'm nervous.
5 I have decided that in order to blend in with cows, I must smell like them. I offer no apology for this.
6 Cows frighten me to such an extent that I will immediately flee if I even suspect the presence of one in my vicinity.
