I ran out of time making my own Elven character, so I grabbed the pre-made one from the starter set. Then I realized that the skill selection is impossible. The included High Elf Wizard comes with proficiency in 5 skills. Arcana, Insight, Investigation, Religion, and Perception.
In the PHB, you get Perception from race and you choose two from being a Wizard. So why does the starter set pre-made character get 5 proficient skills?
