In the character creator in the Character Pool, there are options for how characters appear:

enter image description here

  1. Can Appear as Soldier
  2. Can Appear as VIP
  3. Can Appear as Dark VIP

What do these options do? If I don't select any of them, do my created characters never show up in any of my campaigns?

If I select "Can Appear as Soldier", does that mean that the character can be recruited either through the Avenger, or as a mission reward, or through the black market or Resistance HQ?


Can Appear as Soldier allows for characters to potentially appear wherever there is an opportunity to recruit soldiers. This includes mission rewards.

Can Appear as VIP lets characters to appear as Resistance VIPs in the rescue missions given to you by the Spokesman. Once rescued, they can be either Engineers or Scientists.

Can Appear as Dark VIP can cause them to appear in Guerilla Ops as ADVENT VIPs, who can be captured or killed.

    So if I don't select any of these options, my created character will never show up in any of my campaigns, as either a soldier, VIP, or Dark VIP? – DarthPizza Feb 10 '16 at 9:44
  • As far as I know, they will not. – peper757 Feb 10 '16 at 10:11
