Origins in Baldur's Gate 3 give the player the opportunity to play as a Custom (unique) character or a pre-made. BG3 origins are thus essentially the equivalent of premade characters, each has their own backgrounds. Players can also choose Custom if they wish to have more flexibility in their Character Creation, but there are unique opportunities only available to the premade Origins.
- If you did not select an origin, that character may become your companions in later games.
- During the early access of Baldur's Gate 3, only the custom origin is available.
- See Races and Classes for details on other aspects of Character Creation
