The average character recieves 9 levels to distribute between his Attributes, Skills and Merits. The default assumption is 3 each, giving the character the core character creation values. However, he can choose to lower one of his categories somewhat in order to boost another. Alternatively a storyteller might give a character additional levels to spend as he wishes, or only for a given category.
