All characters in Cantr have a set of skills. When you character spawns, a combination of the genes of two other characters on that location, with some random variation, will determine your character's genes. These genes will stay constant for the duration of your character's lifetime. The genes are the initial values of the skills of your character. Skills can change during the character's lifetime.
