You may be able to shirk on the Background for your characters for the time being, but we require our formalized races to have a documented background and history. This helps us reduce the number of races that are applied for powergaming purposes, and races that are just plain poorly thought out. This section is less important to your race's approval than the technical profile section (we aren't going to go through it with a fine-tooth comb), but if the background is poorly written and/or thought out, we may still deny or temporarily reject the app until something more suitable is provided.
