_________________________________
Combat Ability Summary
Your character's chance to successfully deal damage in melee combat is decided by a number of things: the combat proficiency of your character, whether or not you have a melee weapon equipped and whether the opponent is equipped with a weapon (melee weapons effect this more heavily than guns.)

Best - Roman.
Highest rate of success when attacking in melee. Roman is able to instantly kill a passing target from a hiding spot with any weapon including his bare hands, he's also able to instantly kill any target from behind with a melee weapon.

Above Average - Arica, Boris, Police Officer.
Above average rate of success when attacking in melee. Arica, Boris and the Police Officer are able to instantly kill a passing target from a hiding spot with any weapon including their bare hands, they're also able to instantly kill any target from behind with a melee weapon, although Arica and Boris can't do that with a Crowbar.

Average - Bruno, Emilia, Marin, Marko, Pavle, Psychologist, Pharmacist, Forester.
Average rate of success when attacking in melee. Emilia, Marko and Pavle are able to instantly kill from a passing target from a hiding spot with any weapon although can't instantly kill from behind, while Bruno and Marin can do it from a hiding spot with any weapon but a Crowbar. My best guess is that the Psychologist, Pharmacist and the Forester work like Emilia Marko and Pavle.

Below Average - Anton, Katia, Zlata, Computer Specialist.
Below average rate of success when attacking in melee. Anton, Katia, Zlata and the Computer Specialist are able to instantly kill from a passing target from a hiding spot with any weapon but a Crowbar, although can't instantly kill from behind.

It menas when their morale gets too low, sometimes instead of drinking/sobbing to themselves, they take some supplies and leave you (can't play with them anymore because they left)

That's when they leave the shelter due to extreme sadness kinda thing. If a survivor isn't happy with their surroundings / people in the shelter they'll leave, some are way more likely to steal from the others when they leave too, which is described by those.

What does it mean "Likely to steal when leaving shelter" and "Rarely steals supplies when abandoning the shelter"?

I don't recall any items missing when I send people out to scavange, or is this if they run away from the shelter due to moral?
