I am planning on running a High Elf Far Traveler Sorcerer, whose "far traveler" motifs are due to a loss of memory early in life. He lacks an upbringing to draw motivation from - he is self-motivated but lacks a true purpose. The loss of memory could have been due to the effects of the source of power entering him, or possible a curse gone wrong that gave him his abilities, I'm not sure yet.
He travels to better himself and try to discover his purpose by visiting ancient ruins and impactful destinations. The point is, I believe it would be logical that he would not remember his name, or had a curse that prevented his name from being spoken. (Maybe part of the power gain early in life. I'm still developing him).
Can I have a nameless character (I'd really rather not have to make up a fake/pseudo name but will if absolutely necessary)? Alternately, what are some possible workarounds to make a nameless character more playable?
