In Wrath of the Righteous you can select a background for your character.

If the character already has the class skill, weapon proficiency or armor proficiency granted by the selected background from her class during character creation, then the corresponding bonuses from background change to a +1 competence bonus in case of skills, a +1 enhancement bonus in case of weapon proficiency and a -1 Armor Check Penalty reduction in case of armor proficiency.

Not included in the table below is "Underground Scavenger", which is a secondary background unique to Mongrels. It gives a +2 bonus to Knowledge (World) when brewing potions.
