In the "Select a Character" screen, everyone has varied stats within these attributes. What do they actually do when compared? How do they affect scoring, speed, health, difficulty, spray can capacity, and other factors?

Power is a character's health.

Technique is a character's skating skill, and how good they are at doing tricks. I forget the exact mechanics of this, but I think you'll gain speed faster in grinds (making it possible to more easily reach tough locations) and get a better rating.

Graffiti is how good the character's tags are. This makes tagging more difficult, but will net you a better rating.

Each character also has a different spray can capacity, separate from the listed stats.

Is the spray can capacity based on the Graffiti skill? If so, does more skill mean more or less cans? – Ben Brocka Jan 3 '13 at 21:23
@BenBrocka No, spray capacity is a separate (non-listed) stat, which is just the number of cans. – Samthere Mar 20 '13 at 13:27
