Breathing is a pawn capacity: The ability of a character to breathe. Affects consciousness and movement.

Breathing is impaired by damaged lungs and neck. A character missing a lung has breathing reduced by 50% but can still survive. Without lungs, all breathing ceases and the organism will die. Lungs can be harvested and transplanted from other humans.

Breathing bears a small weight in the consciousness and movement capacities, hence why asthmatics will be slightly slower than healthy colonists.

It is lethal for humans and animals for Breathing to be reduced to zero.
