Beauty (Pawn) is a Stat: How physically attractive this person is. This affects social interactions. Beauty only affects pawns' opinions of each other.
Beauty has a base of 0, a maximum of 4 and a minimum of -4. Each new level of beauty above or below 0 increments the opinion of the pawn held by others by +/− 20 and is capped at +/− 40 meaning anything more than 2 beauty, either positive or negative, has no effect on gameplay. The beauty of worn equipment has no effect on pawn beauty.
Ascetic, kind, and blind pawns do not gain nor lose any opinion for any other pawn based on their beauty stat. Psychopaths do not gain any opinion boost from talking so it's worth trying to improve the beauty stat of pawns in regular contact with psychopaths to avoid constant social fights and insults.
All beauty modifiers are cumulative meaning a pawn with +1 Beauty from the Pretty trait and +1 Beauty from the aesthetic nose will have a total beauty of +2.
Disfigurement adds -15 opinion and while it doesn't affect the beauty stat of a pawn, it disables the effect of positive beauty on the pawn. Disfigurement stacks with the effect of negative beauty possibly leading to -55 opinion on a pawn with less than or equal to -2 beauty.
