For an archetype result of "Special Case," some quality levels include suggestions (Spc:).

  • "Burke" is an Aliens reference. Will be fine while things are going normally, but when things go bad, will screw everyone over to save himself.
  • "Griefer" is meant in the online gaming sense, as someone who kicks over sandcastles for no reason other than they exist, and will likely screw over the crew for no "reason" at all.
  • "Silver" is a reference to Long John Silver from Treasure Island, that is, one who enters service with a predetermined agenda to take over, for his own aims, as opposed to the "Mutineer," who takes an immediate dislike to the leadership and decides he would be better suited.
