Traits are little things that can make your character unique. See also: Genetics Mutations

Some are purely cosmetic like having a funny swedish accent or getting a fancy hat. Some are debilitating, like starting with an addiction, blindness, or not being able to be cloned.

Some cost points to add on, some take away points when you add them on. The idea is to get to 0 - so if you wanted two positive traits, you'd need to take two negative etc.
