D&D 5e Background: Plane-Exiled


You originate from a region of the outer planes but were cast out to and reconstituted in a mortal body, losing all powers and attributes of your previous form but retaining scattered flashes of who you were and of those you knew. Your first memory with your new body is of waking up alone with no material possessions except a few mysterious trinkets, clues to your past.
