All of the different traits your characters can have

The main idea behind the Rogue Legacy series is lineage, and that remains the case in Rogue Legacy 2. Whenever your character dies, you’ll play as one of their children in the next run. Each child has a unique set of traits and a specific class. Some of these traits are helpful, while others can make your run more difficult. But difficult traits offer you increased gold for putting up with them.

Here’s a look at all the traits in Rogue Legacy 2, and some recommendations on traits to skip. (Rogue Legacy 2 is currently in Early Access, and Cellar Door Games will add new features over time.)
