I'm playing a character whose background revolves around hunting certain individuals down and killing them (it sounds so violent when I type it out). He's not got any combat proficiency right now, though, so I want to pick a secondary spec. that will grant him some combat skills as career skills, and some talents that will make him able to carry out his revenge.
He's got a low Brawn and average Agility, so I'm thinking that pistols are the way to go (it has to be up close and personal). Social skills will hopefully let him get close enough.
I thought about going Scoundrel, which would give Ranged (Light) and some nice talents that would increase the likelihood of going first, and hitting harder because he went first. Another option seems to be Infiltrator, though, which gives Streetwise and Skullduggery (desirable career skills for him), and some nice talents.
Infiltrator looks like it pushes characters towards Melee, though, so I have two questions:
1) Is it worth going Infiltrator to try and be a pistol-using assassin-type?
2) Can a character with a Brawn of 1 even consider using Melee as a backup skill?
