Black Desert Online has an advanced character creation system, which you can match with any requirements. However, there ids a limitation though, which makes it impossible to create your character from a scratch, unlike in, e.g. Fallout 4. The number of hairdos has been severely limited (especially when to comes to male characters) and there are only several predefined faces available. It may seem as though this rules out diversity, however this is not the case here. The system here puts an emphasis on face modification. There are three types of sliders available and each one modifies the character in a different way. The basic element is the three-dimensional system of coordinates, i.e. height, width and depth. You can combine this with rotating the image that affects, mainly, slant and the spin of an individual axis. Remember that these are three-dimensional modification and, if you want to modify depth, you need to rotate the character by 90 degrees. After you have defined basic facial features, you can proceed to the looks modification window. Here, you find options to modify eyes, lips, hair, facial hair and ears. Each of the options provides a wide array of modifications. For example, you can change not only the color of irises, but also shape and size of pupils.
After you have defined facial features, you can proceed to defining the character's body build. For obvious reasons, there are more options available for female characters, which translates directly into diversity. Body build definition is based on the same rules as in the case of face creation. There are several types of sliders here that you can use to modify, freely, the body of your character. Also, you can find predefined sets here. After you have defined your body build, you can proceed to defining the clothes. There are few, predefined, ones here and you can modify them freely with dyes, during the game.
The next step in character creation is selecting your constellation. This helps you, later into the game, contact NPCs in order to receive influence, or obtain special rewards which are available for that activities only. To learn more about the Amity System, i.e. the system of relationships that you enter with NPCs, see further chapters devoted to in-game mechanics. The final option is predisposition, i.e. the voice of your character.
