Uh, now wait a minute, Pug. Taken wrong this seems to imply some sort of
mental condition, which is not REQUIRED to be a Lion :-)
It is given for makeing your persona seem real to the rest of us, and for
enhancing the game for those around you with your persona play.
You should be able to look at such a person and say, "Yes, that is what a
13th century archer (or whatever the persona) would be like!"
