Persona User (5e Background)
From D&D Wiki
"I am thou. Thou art I." You've likely heard these words before. You are someone who has seen beyond the veil of reality and entered the world of cognition. Be it in a dream or an encounter that was all too real, your life was changed forever. The contract was sealed and your spirit of rebellion was released. Your persona. It is the very reflection of your inner most self and through it you find strength. But how did you come to form such bond? Did you find your own way into the world of cognition? Or were you simply fortunate or unfortunate enough to enter the metaverse by another means?

Feature: The Spirit of Rebellion
Your persona is your rebellious spirit, deep within you, lending you the power to fight back against those you would otherwise be powerless against.
Alternate Feature: The Path to Rehabilitation
You acquired your persona in The Velvet Room, a place that you were pulled into while you slept. A mysterious benefactor of sorts then told you that they'd be watching you on your "path to rehabilitation". What that means is unclear, but this benefactor does provide you a level of aid. During a long rest, you may contact your benefactor and they may provide you with some information. Be it directions, a name, or cryptic message for you to unravel. The information provided to you is up to your DM and they may decide that it come at a cost.
