Legendary characters are mythic from birth, and some are mythic from conception. If you're playing a game about mythic heroes, use this table to explain why they're so mythic. In a lot of case, knowing a character's birthright will help you come up with a Gimmick.

  4. Miraculous Birth (virgin birth, parthenogenesis, hatched, etc.)
  5. Heroic Ancestry
