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

Your character carries around an irrational, somewhat obsessive hatred of a particular group of people or other subject that harms his/her relationships with others. Whether or not the hatred is justified, it doesn't matter: The character must seem unreasonable and out of step with society for carrying around this hatred. The subject of the hatred must be a common enough element in the world for it to come up sometimes in conversation: Merely hating one person isn't sufficient unless it's an especially famous or important person. The most common types of hatred are prejudice against members of a particular race, religion, ethnicity, or gender.

Level One: The character's hatred leads them to be rude and intolerant about the subject when it comes up, rubbing people the wrong way.
Level Two: The character becomes violent when the subject of the hatred is encountered in person, causing numerous problems.
