This game takes place in the Laundry Files universe. While not strictly required reading, I would highly recommend it. Some of the short stories are even available online for free. Overtime is a good introduction.
Characters in this game will be part of RED PINEAPPLE FALCON, a program designed to fully utilize new recruits while freeing up senior agents to deal with more serious matters. This is in preparation for the uptick in incidents expected as the stars come into alignment and the world moves closer to CASE NIGHTMARE GREEN.
Characters should essentially be normal every day people who were accidentally exposed to something that falls under the purview of the Laundry. You wrote the wrong piece of code, saw the Laundry cleaning up a mess, etc. You should not be a ritual magic user or compulational demonologist at this point. The Nature cards should reflect your career prior to joining the Laundry and will likely lend themselves to possible ways that you were brought to the Laundry’s attention. Your nature will also apply some natural bounds to your initial Strengths and Weaknesses.
For all of the cards involved in character creation, feel free to customize them to fit the character you want to create. The only real requirements I have are that you should have little to know knowledge of the things the Laundry deals with, outside of the incident that brought you to the Laundry’s attention. Strengths are mostly generic to reflect this, with one exception that should be obvious. Weaknesses are a little more Laundry specific but do include some generic items. Your subplot should absolutely be specific to your character and relevant to the Laundry.
