The background of a player character is an overarching descriptor of that character's life before the campaign started. Older characters may have had a long history, and might take two or three backgrounds and merge them to comprise their whole story, while simpler characters find that one background is more than enough to describe what life they left behind. Often times a character's background will give them the knowledge to work certain vehicles, devices, or tools, and also give them a leg up when it comes to certain life skills. Backgrounds, being mostly role-playing devices, can also be invented from scratch, so the below list is far from comprehensive.
