"Malice is, as defined by 'Which Wizard's Witch' is 'The act of spitefully and angrily expending energy in a manner such that it will cause discomfort to one's target." Malice as defined by the general population is "Being just plain mean for no reason at all." Take your pick...they both mean the same.

Dispassion

Dominant attribute: Insight

[New Skill as of DLC 12]

One can be lacking in passion, but Dispassion takes it to an entirely other level. Dispassion refers to the skill of restraining and dispelling passion, either your own or others'. Ironically, these who lack passion hardly need to bother pursuing this skill - they won't be motivated to study such concepts, and Passion is not something easily manipulated without experience.

Gambling

Dominant attribute: Luck

"Only fools believe that gambling is luck; true gamblers know it’s a skill…one they constantly curse and wish they had never learned." - Grimmald Blue Tooth, 498.  Like the Flawless Timing skill, many consider Gambling to be something unlearnable…you either have the ability, or you don’t.  They are most decidedly wrong, of course, but that won’t stop them from laying their losses at the altar of chance.  The skill of Gambling is about knowing when to push one’s hand and when to lay off; it’s about knowing when to take a chance and when to walk away with their winnings.
