Traits will be chosen during Character Creation in Starfield, and will set up a baseline for your character's starting abilities and what they will be proficient at early on in the game. Sometimes these choices will also affect gameplay in other ways, such as unlocking special dialogue options in some situations.
Below we have listed the Traits that we currently know about, along with their effect. Please keep in mind that this information comes from pre-release footage or Starfield, so it may have changed come release.
