Do We Have This One?? Oh, and I'm open to title suggestions. That, and suggestions for adjustments to the description.

This is for characters who are, well, blunt. Things they say may upset and/or offend people, but The Blunt One does not see this as reason enough to hold back.

Sometimes, upsetting people may even be the goal. Other times, it's not the goal but it's seen as a consequence worth risking for the sake of another goal.

Not to be confused with Brutal Honesty, (though they can overlap) as one does not even need to believe in honesty in the first place to be blunt.

Compare Deadpan Snarker, which often overlaps with this, but doesn't always.
