You're bald, likely prematurely so, and highly conscious of it. Your baldness is so bald, it goes beyond ordinary baldness.
Benefit: You're bald. You have no hair, and therefore you never need to wash it, or suffer the pain of dropping little hairs throughout your living room. Your baldness is so ingrained in your personality that putting on a wig gives you a +10 bonus to your Disguise check to impersonate a non-specific non-bald person, which is useful if your skinhead activities get you in trouble with the cops.
Your head is so shiny that when it is sunny out, people might see their reflection in your bald head. When under direct sunlight or the effect of the daylight spell, people within 10 feet around you become automatically dazzled without a save. If you expend a standard action, people dazzled by your baldness must make a Reflex save (DC 10 + half your character level + your
baldnesCharisma bonus) or become dazed for 1 round instead.
Drawback: You're bald. You find this state of affairs somewhat unpleasant, and are highly conscious of your baldness. Whenever someone uses words like bold, or building, or bailed close to you, all you hear is bald, balding, bald which may invoke your ire. Any word spoken in your presence in a language you understand that could be misconstrued as an allusion to hair or baldness grants you a -10 penalty to any and all Charisma based checks except for Intimidate.
You can never benefit from any hair growing effects. Also, coming into contact with hair products, such as combs, conditioner, or barber tools, will cause you to become shaken for 1 minute.
Roleplaying Ideas: Maybe you trained so hard that your hair fell out, and now all excitement is gone from your life...
