2 levels, 1 point per level
not available to metamorphosis forms

This defect applies to characters who go to great lengths to capture attention and fame, whether it's positive or negative. They want to be seen, they want to be heard, they want to be known. Characters who merely want to be the center of attention at a party and are willing to make fools of themselves to that end do not count; this is about characters who do scandalous things just to keep their names in the newspaper. The character must continue acting this way routinely for the defect to continue to apply.

Level One: The character devotes time, money, or resources to getting famous, or is willing to risk damaging property (personal or otherwise) in the pursuit of fame.
Level Two: The character risks personal injury (or in extreme cases, possible death) for the sake of becoming famous.

Glory Hound is taken by this character:
