Required by level 30
This command allows a player to edit his or her history file. History files

personality, and help you figure out their roleplay attitude. How did your
character become who they are? Are you a Lorrdian freedom fighter? A holonet
movie star turned Moff? An exiled mad Khommite scientist? A Mandalorian looking
