Every character has an attitude that describes their personality. Several of these alter the way events affect morale. For example, killing an enemy soldier causes a "positive" event, while friendly casualties cause "negative" events. (In addition to the factors below, "negative" events are adjusted by -1 if you're at level 1 or +1 if you're above level 5.)


Morale +1 on positive events. Double morale penalty for running away from a fight.


No effect during game.


No effect during game. (This is the actual term that appears in the source code.)

big shot: [can't get from quiz]

No effect during game.


Morale -2 on negative events. No penalty for running from a fight.


No effect during game.


No effect during game.


No effect during game.


Morale +1 on positive and negative events.


Morale -1 on positive and negative events.
Characters can have a personality trait, which is generally negative, though there is an upside to "psycho".


Morale declines and fewer action points are available while underground. Can cause verbal complaints.

fear of insects: [can't get from quiz]

Morale and action points decline when character sees an insect (i.e. the subterranean bugs in sci-fi mode). Can cause verbal complaints.


Occasionally, when told to move from point A to point B, your character will stop and ask for directions. Dimitry is an example of a forgetful character.


No effect during game. Can cause verbal complaints.


Soldier does poorly when left alone. Don't put them in a squad by themselves, far from friends, or morale plummets.

non-swimmer: [can't get from quiz]
Does poorly in deep water (runs out of breath 5x as fast). Can cause verbal complaints.


Character is normal.


Soldier gets a to-hit bonus when attacking the same target repeatedly. Small chance of switching from single-shot to burst fire ("Buzz goes psycho"), especially on non-targeted shots. Can cause verbal remarks.
Un-hired mercenaries have a small chance of dying each day. Forgetful, nervous, or psycho mercs are more likely to die, while stealthy mercs are less likely.
