Role Feats

When a character is created, you may choose a single role for that character. Choosing a role, or accessing either of its two default Traits, costs 0 character points. Any other Role Feats chosen at or after character creation cost the normal 1 character point per rank.

Characters may not change roles once chosen, so choose your role wisely!

There is no requirement that each member of the group chooses a different role, though this produces by far the most balanced group. A team of Strikers might be able to deal great amounts of damage to lone enemies, but they would be hard-pressed to deal with a vast swarm of foes, and without the support of a Defender to protect them from incoming attacks or a Leader to help them pull off more difficult attacks, their defenses would most likely prove weak.
