OriginEdit

Mary Kingsley was the first contact of European foreigners for many West African tribes in the 1890s. The sight of a single, white, unmarried woman living among different tribes was an even greater spectacle. Passage through the Canary Islands, Angola, Nigeria and other locales became common on her years long journey. She canoed down the Ogooué River and climbed up Mount Cameroon. Back home, Kingsley lectured the importance of protecting traditional African customs instead of uprooting them.

EffectsEdit

Moves towards the nearest group of strangers not-yet-friends. Also appears to be based on diversity, actively seeking out people with vast differences in background but kindred spirits in heart. Distress rings out in one’s current colleagues, either in paranoia of being sidelined or eliciting simple disgust over ‘’another’’ poor choice.
