This is a social or roleplay feature rather than a mechanical one. eg. connections to criminal underground, arcane researchers, dock or warehouse workers, etc. or it could be a skill such as reading/navigating by the stars, easily able to find back alleys to hide or quickly navigate, able to study a document and replicate it, you have or had a vision and seek its meaning, etc. If stuck talk with your DM
