Artist

The artist is something a rogue looking anywhere they can for new inspirations. They mesh well with most groups, but work best in campaigns with an urban or cosmopolitan setting – artists need audiences. Painter, photographer, sculptor, architect, actor . . . the common element is “artistic sensitivity” that turns into sensitivity to things decidedly undecorative.
