I was hoping there were universal attributes that could define any and every distribution. All i can think of is mean, std dev, skew, and kurtosis but that doesnt explain everything.

Also came across an interesting package in Matlab that outputs a best guess.

It basically just looks for the best fit within a long list of distributions. This is what I meant by you need a class of distributions of interest.
