The detective has devoted his life to the single-minded goal of hunting a specific target and bringing them to justice. Justice takes many forms for different people. For some, justice means enforcing the laws of the land. For others, justice is avenging a moral transgression. Detectives are most at home in the urban landscape, for it is there that they most likely trained. Some train in local constibulatories, and may still be employed there, while others may have taught themselves the art of detection.

Detectives are specially skilled at using the pistol, which is their favored weapon. Its small size allows for easy concealment and blending into groups, while still packing enough of a punch to let them keep their skin.

CREATING A DETECTIVE
Wisdom is primary. Depending on how one goes about their business, Constitution or Dexterity is secondary.
