Space Janitor[edit]


You are a janitor from the far reaches of space and a time most distant. Why you are here is unclear, although you do seem to have a knack for being dragged into sticky situations that you have to pull yourself out of. Why are you here though, what is your quest, and can you avoid another senseless tragedy?

Skill Proficiencies: Survival and Perception

Tool Proficiencies: None

Equipment: Your janitorial uniform, a shiny gem that casts a dim light, and your trusty mop.

Feature: Janitorial Instincts[edit]

Your time as a janitor has trained you to be ready for any and all messes and even know where they are relative to you. You always know where to find a mess and cleaning one often rewards you, either monetarily or with room and board for the evening.
