Feature: Trust Issues

Most of the people those are your birth race and also the race of your adoptive family (with the possible exception of you family/s) will find it harder to believe in you. The races those will take longer to trust you just because they would think you have been a corrupted one or on the side of the race of one of your adoptive family and also no longer would be share their values.

Those people who ever are the same race of your adoptive family will may take longer to trust you cause they believe only that you will always be one of your races, no need how were you brought up. Due to this ostracization, Races those are not of your birth or else adopted tend to take you with a bit more kindness.
