Characters with this defect have limitations on what subjects they can physically attack because of moral reservations, emotional attachments, strict orders from a superior, or actual mental programming (because of mind control or magical spells). The attack restriction can only be overcome during exceptional circumstances and may result in harsh consequences, including unbearable guilt or punishment by superiors. In any case, a difficult Soul check must be overcome. Add 1 point to the total value of the defect for every restriction after the first one.

Level One: The character's restriction applies to something one would rarely need to attack in the game. The character's reservations are less hard to overcome.
Level Two: The character's restriction applies to something one often needs to attack in the game. The character's reservations are more hard to overcome.
