It's designed to let players start playing straight away, without breaking things later when they have eventually decided upon an identity. I'm fairly sure that's an advantage.
If Graal###### were used only for trials, no saving should be going on, so scripts shouldn't get messed up.
Scito hoc super omnia.
Haec vita est tua una sola.
Dum vita superest, utere maxime quoque puncto, momento, et hora quae habes.
Tempus neminem non manet.
Noli manere tempus.
Carpe Diem

Seize the Day.
