There are 2 types of skills which a character can have: characteristics, or "passive" skills, which modify your character's stats; and "active" skills, which are abilities like attacking or harvesting. All characters start out with a set of characteristics that are unique to their race. More characteristics and skills become available as your character reaches higher levels.

Characteristics

Characteristics are found in the "Passive Skills" area of the character window. Types of characteristics will vary with race and class. Following are some of the types of characteristics.
