A quirk is a power that manifests in a person usually at a young age, 14 at the latest. They are often viewed as the next step in humanity’s evolution. They are quite unique and often hereditary, each of them allowing various new ways to adventure. It is currently unknown what the source of quirks was, though it is theorized that it originated as a disease carried by mice. The initial outbreak of quirks caused a breakdown in society as such a force was unheard of before hand. After the chaos was quelled by a group of virtuous individuals who would later be referred to as Pro Heroes, though only after they were officially inducted into a newly founded system similar to a police force.
Creating a Quirk User
When creating a quirk user, think about how getting a power affects them. Do they think that because they have power they are entitled to a life of happiness? Do they think that, because their power is less flashy, they won't stand out as a hero? Are they a little cinnamon roll underdog that must be protected at all costs? What is their goal in life? Do they want to use their quirks to live a life of crime? Do they want to become a pillar of justice? If the previous is true, is it for the benefit of the people or their own wallet?
Each quirk unique in playstyle, role and ability. A build should be prioritised on a quirk by quirk basis.
Generally, make your quirk abilty your highest ability, followed by constitution. Secondly take the folk hero background.
