Custom Background: Slave

Humanity is going through the worst time of its cycle. People fighting one another is nowadays considered a sport, a competition for the rich and mighty who buy everyone to work as their own. You were just one of the unfortunates, one of the ones who didn’t run from the Bounty Hunters, the Rich and the Law of the land. You worked so much that 5 generations of your family combined could not perform an equal amount, yet you receive the least in society. You are brushed off, someone who shouldn’t share the same streets as others. You know what the lowest points are, afterall, you’ve seen them all firsthand. Skill Proficiencies: Survival and Sleight of Hand Tool Proficiencies: 1 Type of Artisan Tools Languages: If not known, you know the language of your slave master.


You have been working as whatever your master wanted for you. You have learned it well, though you wished not to. Nevertheless, you have grown to love it. The Following will help determine what you were forced to do during your time being someone’s pawn. Otherwise, choose whichever you perform.
