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

Breathing is impaired by damaged lungs. 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.
