Hi Development Team

I wish to ask something about Backgrounds

I'm playing a hero from Deadfire who is an Aristocrat escaping from an assassination attempt and trying to rebuild his life. Will my character meet his family in Deadfire or will he not?

You hail from Deadfire Archipelago, where you were orphaned at a young age. While the world is filled with orphans, you are that rare orphan who is parentless by choice, with both of them meeting their deaths by your hand.

My choice does not burden developers to think up a family for a my Rogue. :grin:

My question to the devs is not about your choice, but mine

Sorry man. Did not mean to offend you.

The background is too many options, it is very unlikely that the developers will work out each.

I would very much like them to comment on this situation somehow.

The developers mentioned in past Q&As that there would be unique dialogue options for characters who are from the Deadfire Archipelagos. They've also mentioned that they would work on integrating background options into dialogues as well. 

 

That said, I highly doubt your character will meet their family in Pillars 2. The Aristocrat option is open to all races, so in order for them to introduce your character's family believably, they'd not only have to come up with versions for each race but also relocate the versions to areas in which the presence of aristocrats of that race would make sense. That's a lot of work to do for one background out of dozens.
