Circumstances of Birth
You were born to the middle class, which includes merchants, artisans, and tradespeople. You likely grew up in a good-sized settlement, and one of your parents is likely associated with a guild or other trade organization. As a free person, you don’t experience the bondage of serfdom or peasantry, but you also lack the privilege of the nobility. You gain access to the Artisan social trait and the Merchant social trait.
You gain access to the Talented social trait.
Major Childhood Events
You died, or came so close to death that you walked the boundary between the realms of the living and the dead. Having passed from life’s domain once, you have a unique perspective on life, perhaps even a greater appreciation for it—or maybe your experience caused you to reject all trivial things, focusing only on matters of true import. You gain access to the Fearless Defiance faith trait and the Arisen story feat.
You were buried beneath the earth, possibly after an avalanche or earthquake. For 3 days the earth covered you, until at the end of the third day you emerged from the mountain unharmed but not unchanged. You gain access to the Earth-Touched magic trait.
In your adolescent years, you dealt with or were possessed by a fiend who lent you raw power at a time of great need. This experience tainted your body and mind and changed your life. Some part of the demon remains inside you like an old friend, influencing you toward destructive ends. You gain access to the Possessed magic trait and the Damned story feat.
You beat, assaulted, or mutilated someone.
