Background and Description
Step 7: Biographical Information
Last, but certainly not least, you’ll want to add a few details:
- Your Name: What do folks call ya?
- Birthplace: Where were you born? On a Border Planet? In the Core?
- What You Look Like: Got a telltale birthmark? Blonde hair? Tall and stout? Short and thin?
To further flesh out your character background, take a peek at the Distinctions you’ve chosen and think about the following. No need to write a novel if you don’t want to, a phrase or sentence in response is plenty to get your character moving and breathing.
- Where you’ve been the last few years.
- Where you’re going in the near future.
- What your role was in the Unification War.
- What you’re doing to keep your head above water.
- How you feel about the politics of the ’Verse (the Alliance, the War, etc.).
- Which planet, space station, or moon you hail from.
- What you think about the other four systems.
- If you believe in Reavers or think there’s a monster waitin’ for you in the black.
- Why you want to be in a Crew.
- Whether or not you’re the spiritual sort.
- What kinds of foods, music, and clothing you fancy.
