Construct (5e Background)
From D&D Wiki
You were made, not born. For some reason you have been crafted by a skilled tinkerer, wizard, engineer or other craftsman. Were you built for a war cresting the horizon? Was your maker a lonely hermit who made you as a companion, but died when they finished? Are you an ancient guardian of a sacred location?
Skill Proficiencies: Choose 2: Arcana, History, Religion, Animal Handling, Insight, Performance.
Tool Proficiencies: Artificer’s Tools
Languages: One exotic language of your choice.
Equipment: Common clothes (if you appear humanoid), a pouch with 10gp, a sketchbook with your designs inside, Artificer’s Tools.
Feature: Construct Image
You appear robotic and don’t blend into a crowd. Xenophobia against you is common among most races, but the wiser races find you fascinating and wish to study you.
Alternate Feature: Fascinating Design
There’s nothing in this world quite like you. You can usually draw a crowd simply by making your presence known. However, rich scholars and nobles simply can’t stand not owning you.
