To fulfill your holy mission, you will be able to choose one of three main characters—a priest, a paladin or a thief. Each character is endowed with many skills that will enable you to develop your character into never-thought-of heights. Skills that the characters possess are of two kinds—common skills with which each character is provided, and unique skills that make abysmal differences among main characters and will thus allow you to try out three wholly different gameplay strategies. It will be up to you only what skills and attributes you will decide to develop for your character—the game is really very flexible in this respect, so that two priests for example can differ from each other like day and night.
Amongst the common skills of all three main characters there are:
increases hit probability and inflicted damage when attacking with hand arms.
increases hit probability and inflicted damage when firing the bow or thrusting throwing weapons.
increases defense against all types of physical attacks and allows for usage of better protective wear.
allows to automatically reveal hidden objects, such as secret passageways, caches with treasures and deadly traps.
allows the main character to identify found magical items without having to visit a merchant.

But he got a chance to gain his status back and in that effort his special skills acquired during years spent among the worst scum of the Realm will surely come in handy:
