The Playable Character {or Main Character/MC} is the specific individual that you take control of in each of the Geneforge games, their names, strengths, and mannerisms all dependent on your actions. Few of the games have much of a backstory for the characters with their past hidden to you. For games 1-4, the Afterwards is the most likely explanation based on the events and the backstory of the game following it.

Different Playable Characters

Geneforge 1

  • Background - The game starts with the MC on a Living Craft on his way towards a Shaper Academy. The MC is most likely young, as Shapers prefer to start training at a young age to better indoctrinate the members. Proof of the MC's age is the fact that he/she starts without any powers either magical or shaping.
  • Afterwards - The MC sails back to the mainland and is briefly imprisoned and interrogated before their release. The MC swears an oath to keep what he saw a secret.

Geneforge 2

  • Background - The MC of Geneforge 2 begins as an apprentice who has already completed their schooling at a Shaper Academy and as such already has the powers of a Shaper.
  • Afterwards

Geneforge 3

  • Background - The MC of Geneforge 3 begins as an apprentice who was enrolled in Greenwood Academy. The MC is likely around 20 years old at the start of the game {evidence for this is from G4 in which it is stated how old Greta and Alwan are in that game. Simply subtracting their age by the number of years the war has gone on gets you at most 24 and at least 18 and likelihood is that the MC from G3 is around the same age}.
  • Afterwards

Geneforge 4: Rebellion

  • Background
  • Afterwards

Geneforge 5: Overthrow

  • Background
  • Afterwards
