Like I said, it would mostly be for role-playing. So, naturally, it wouldn’t be absolutely vital since you could just headcanon it. But I’d still like the option regardless; it’s nice to have the game acknowledge it rather than just headcanoning it, and there could be some interesting reactions from the people who asked us.
So you’re going the “started off poor, ended up rich” route? That’ll prove to be interesting.
Personally, I’d make mine piss poor. I’m trying to make my MC’s past life in the human world as miserable as possible, to the point where he’d essentially throw himself at Astrid’s feet due to her giving him another chance at a new life. Sure, it’ll be a bumpy ride, what with being a dragonborn and dating someone who’s heavily into politics, but he’ll work it out.
