Default Is there an incentive for fragile and clumsy characters?

Some of the character set-ups specify that they give you an xp bonus. Unlucky and poverty give you a 5% xp bonus. But most of the others, such as fragile and clumsy, don't offer any information about why you might want to take such a modifier. Is there nothing that offsets the disadvantages? If not, that seems a bit odd. Why would you deliberately handicap a character?

They are mostly just higher challenge options, but I should probably go back and make the XP bonuses more consistent.

I hope you do! The rest of the game is really good about its explicit risk/reward calculus, so it seems odd to just make things harder without any sort of trade-off.
