The problem with the foundry this way is that people have many different characters, eac h of a different race, gender, background and personality.
To try and shoehorn in a backstory beyond perhaps to have it an optional dialgoue choice for a specific NPC for the Player is just going to step on too many toes.
However, that doesn't mean that we can't do look into the history and backstory of our NPCs (possibilty inserting out own PCs as an NPC in the foundry mission though that would get weird if that same PC interacted with himself.)
Memory Lane, a mission of mine that I've recently published is in fact all about this. Things happen and the NPC and the PC and their BOffs have to re-live/live the experiences of the NPC during certain major pivotal point in their life.
