Nero Black is a Flighty 28 year old Human Bounty Hunter who loves to cook (N.E.W.) [UPDATED]

After reading through the alpha playtest document for N.E.W., I decided to make a character.  A psychic Bounty Hunter named Nero Black.

The game let's you encapsulate your idea for your character like so:

Nero Black is a Grumpy 28 year old Human Bounty Hunter who loves to cook.

Flighty is a trait that grants a bonus of 1d6 whenever it comes into play, it requires a Willpower of 3 or less.   Age is dictated by the life path method of character generation (akin to Traveller).  While Nero is Human, the game has several species of alien races, your species grants your base attributes and skills.  Bounty Hunter is my last career taken and his current job.  Cooking is his hobby and every character chooses one as one of the final pieces of character generation.  It's rank is dictated by your Age and it is a non-combat interest (in most instances, a musician could use their saxophone as a weapon if its cool enough.

Here is the full Character Sheet:
