- Your character will develop a very intense focus on one thing: to gain power. They will study who is currently holding power and know everything about them. They plan to use this knowledge to get rid of their rival.
- Your character will lose any sense of humour they had - no time for that sort of thing, they've got a mission to carry out.
- Your character will lose any empathy they had - same reason as 2.
- Your character will often forget to eat and drink properly because they are too busy studying methods of removing someone or anything else they think will help them on the path to power.
- Your character will lie and cheat to get what they want. This will be particularly noticeable if they had not been like this before.
