Were you a victim of domestic abuse and a great fight broke out over adopting you? Are your birth parents even still alive? Did you maybe see them perish before your eyes or see them leave you as a helpless vagabond?

Feature : Trust Issues

All the people of your race and also the race of your adoptive family (by some of the possible exceptions of your family) find its order for trusting you deeply. Also those of the race that you’re will be taking longer time to trust you, cause they think that you have either been corrupted or on the side of the race of your adoptive family and no longer will share their values too.

Here the people those who are the same race of the adoptive family might have taken longer time to believe in you why because they just believed that you will be one of your races but no matter however you’re brought up. Any how due to this ostracization and also the races that aren’t of your birth or else adopted tend for taking you with some more kindness.
