The Occultist is a Background in Solasta: Crown of the Magister introduced during the Inner Strength DLC. A Background is a character feature that is presented during Character Customization. A character's background is what they did before taking up the adventuring life. The background gives them equipment and proficiencies, as well as the ability to select proficiency flags that affect the character's dialogue choices.


You have devoted your life to the study of hidden and forbidden knowledge. Where others follow well-trodden academic paths, you strike out into the intellectual unknown, which is as surprising and as dangerous as any literal wilderness.

A character's personality affects their conversations.
