Once in a while my new character will just have a black cloud, like dust or something, billowing out behind them. It doesn't seem to be associated to any specific traits or equipment that I can discern.

That happens if the character you pick is a knave or assassin.

From the wiki:

Both the Knave and Assassin have a black cloud following them. This has no function and is only for visual effect.

It seems like I've had it happen with non-knaves, but I could be wrong. I'll have to check when I get home... luckily I die a lot. ;) – Telos Jul 30 '14 at 19:03
Lol, well let me know how that goes. I'll be interested to know if you've got a bug on your hands. – BammaHamma Jul 30 '14 at 19:08
Yep, seems to be only knaves... don't know how I missed that before! – Telos Jul 31 '14 at 13:55
Good, I'm glad you got that figured out, then. – BammaHamma Jul 31 '14 at 14:24
