next of kind

#1 Postby Jose » Sat Oct 05, 2013 1:04 pm

Since english is not my native language (as you may know it), I've some troubles with some words and concepts. One of them is this one: One of kind. It appears in several character sheets and I want to know what it means.

I know it's a dumb question, but I have to ask it, anyway.

:P

Thanks.

I've not explicitly seen "one of a kind" on a character sheet, but the translation would be a single item, or a unique item.

For example, if you were the only person in the world who could fly, you would be one of a kind.

In the US, "Next of Kin" means the person's closest living blood relative.

Note, that's "closest" not in terms of physical distance, but of generations apart and familial connection. Apparently, there's a specific hierarchy...

1- Children
2- Parents
3- Grandchildren
4- Siblings
5- Grandparent
6- Great-Grandchild
7- Niece/Nephew
8- Aunt/Uncle

...and it goes on from there.

Yeah, it has a legal definition in the US, whereas in the UK it tends to be much more flexible. Typically you can nominate anyone as your next of kin - they don't even have to be a blood relative.
