This attribute allows a character to remember a specific scent and recognize it later. Memorizing a scent takes about one minute (roll a mind check if there isn't enough time), and recognizing it later requires a mind check. However, the character must be able to actually smell the scent, which means that this attribute is most useful for animalistic characters or those with a powerful sense of smell already. While the main use of this attribute is tracking by scent, it is also useful for identifying impostors. A character who takes this attribute should have the scents he or she has memorized listed in the Notes section.
Level One: The character can only recognize the scent of a person well-known to him or her (family, close friend, etc).
Level Two: The character can recognize the scent of anyone whose scent has been memorized.
Level Three: The character can recognize the scent on a person's clothes, or something that was in their close presence for an extended time.
Level Four: The character can recognize the scent in a location where the person has been for at least ten minutes within the past week.
Level Five: The character can recognize the scent in a location where the person has been at any time within the past year.
Level Six: The character can recognize a scent on any object or location in the character's presence, as well as determine how long it has been since the character was in that presence.
