Most people lie sometimes, but this defect is for the people who can't seem to stop. They lie all the time, about completely innocent matters, out of a compulsion. This is not the same as denial, which would be covered by Delusion, nor is it the same thing as Skeleton in the Closet, which only applies to one big secret. This is for people who know they're lying, and lie about virtually everything.

Level One: The character will admit to lying once caught, or most people don't know the character is a liar.
Level Two: The character will never admit that something was a lie, or almost everyone knows the character is a liar.
