Just to clarify, the character you play- does he or she have a backstory and if so, what is it?
Mine is a high society Elementalist who studied with the priory in Divinity's Reach. She has a welsh accent. Her name is Sorceress Rinoa (I love FFVIII) but I actually call her Eleanor since Rinoa/ is derived from Eleanor and both mean light.
She's not over-exceptional or the hero of her story.
Growing up with a silver-spoon only spoiled her with certain amenities but not cloud her judge of character.
When she first began her journey, Eleanor and some of her closest companions worked as guides to other champions in the depths of Arah.
Eleanor is of course, an overly skilled elementalist thanks to years of brawling the elite ranks in PvP arenas. She has since retired from the PvP scene and often spends time with her Mesmer Cousin, drinking wine and attending masquerades.
I could go into more detail, but it was just a brief example.
