You are a simple commoner, but now find yourself draw to the extraordinary life of adventure. Perhaps you longed for a different life away from the crowded streets of your home, or were forced into this life by circumstances beyond your control.

Feature: Indistinguishably Common
You are, for better or worse, very…very… common. You are simply another face in the crowd, going unnoticed while among other ordinary folk, with nobles and the city guard more often looking past you than at you. Conversely, when you are among nobles or in other places where you simply do not belong, your pedestrian looks, and apparent lack of breeding draws a good deal of attention.

Variant Feature: Commoner

Being of the common folk you can easily fit in among them. You find that common folk seem to trust you more than they would a noble or retired member of the legions, and unless you have shown yourself to be a danger, you can find a place to rest or even hide among them. However, while they may be willing to shield you from the law, they will not risk their lives for you.
