Like other Besthesda games, Starfield has a very in-depth character creation process, which allows you to configure your character to be unique and to your liking. The process allows you to customize your character’s appearance, as well as their Background and Traits which affect how your character plays and what they specialize in.
As you fine-tune your character in Starfield you can choose your pronouns and select their gender identity. Here is how to change your pronouns in Starfield.
What Are Pronouns in Starfield?
Pronouns are used in Starfield during the character creation process and act as a modernized version of selecting your sex as seen in many games in the past. Bethesda has chosen to expand this and become more inclusive to allow players to have their character identify as male, female, or non-binary. Starfield allows you to choose your character’s pronouns as he/him, she/her, or they/them regardless of their appearance. This is just so the NPCs in the game refer to the correct gender when communicating with you and is no different from previous games asking if you’re male or female for the same purpose.
How to Change Your Pronouns in Starfield
During the character creation process at the beginning of the game, you will be able to choose your pronouns. They are automatically set as he/him or she/her depending on the body type you select during the process. But, if you think the automatically selected pronoun isn’t correct or not how you want your character to identify, you can change it to either he/him, she/her, or they/them.
If during your playthrough you decide that the pronouns for your character aren’t correct, you can change them at any time. In order to change your pronouns in Starfield you just need to go to an Enhance Clinic where you can customize your character, including giving new pronouns. This process will cost 500 in-game credits but money is plentiful in the game so there’s no need to worry about that.
The first Enhance Clinic that you will come across is in the Commercial District of New Atlantis, the first planet you go to after the opening mission. Once you enter, speak to the manager to customize your character. The 500 credits are taken regardless of whether you change anything or not, so make sure you want to customize your character so you don’t lose credits. There are Enhance Clinics in most major locations, with others including Cydonia, Neon, and Paradiso.
