Backgrounds

Below lists the currently available Backgrounds as they appear in the core books and other sources. Of course a player is not restricted to these and could easily develop their own. A background provides the character with starting proficiencies (and sometimes languages), equipment and funds. The accompanying personality and bonds tables are optional, but a good source for fleshing out your character.

Just like the classes, if you want to play a character from a primitive planet, you could just use the fantasy-based backgrounds: D&D 5E Backgrounds.

The backgrounds below are from sci-fi books.
