A Custom Character is a character you create yourself in Divinity: Original Sin 2:
You can choose to play as a Custom Character during Character Creation.
Unlike Origin Characters, Custom Characters do not have their own backstory.
- Custom Characters don't come with their own background story and thus may be less interesting.
- Try choosing an origin character if this is your first playthrough, to access more dialog options and personal character quests.
- Play as a Custom Character if you are roleplaying and don't like the background story that came with those characters to interfere with your imagination.
