Characters in Classified are built around a set of [[Backgrounds]]. These are a broad description of their history and life so far. Obviously not everything in a person's life can be described by Backgrounds; however, these are the experiences which have helped the character make contacts and gain skills. The description of each Background gives an idea of the contacts and skills that a character will have as a result of taking that background. **Classified is a game about contacts and information. Your contacts will be far more important than any abilities your character will have aquired from their backgrounds.** Characters in Classified are built around a set of [[Backgrounds]].

-Backgrounds are split into Major, Minor and Play Style types. Major backgrounds describe longer-term careers and experiences. minor backgrounds are less important events and special quirks relevant to the character. Senior membership in an Organisation is also a Major background. Play Style backgrounds are there to allow you to express your stance on character death and unplayability, so we can make the game as much fun for you as possible.+Backgrounds are split into Major and Minor backgrounds. Major backgrounds describe longer-term careers and experiences. minor backgrounds are less important events and special quirks relevant to the character. In depth involvement in an Organisation is also a Major background.
Unless stated otherwise, each background may be taken **ONCE** only. Some backgrounds include other backgrounds as part of their cost; for instance, [[Backgrounds#Time in the Military (Ranked)]] includes [[Backgrounds#Time in the Military (Grunt)]], and so you do not need to buy both.
