The lifepath system in Cyberpunk 2077 is described as being fluid, and by selecting different options for your backstory, you shape your character's personality. The options you select in the lifepath directly influences how the story unfolds, and can unlock or modify certain things in game depending on which choices you pick.

Lifepath is the system used in character generation within role-playing games. It is a system used for figuring out a character's background and personal history. It works like a set of flowcharts, each numbered for randomly generated results. This serves as a list of plot complications that helps shape a character so the players are not left playing a generic archetype, who is nothing more than a collection of stats and equipment with much of the character and their personal history left blank.

The system was inspired by the space opera role-playing game "Traveller", which first introduced the system in 1977.
