    There's nothing wrong with that. However, how such a character is going to be played will depend a huge amount on the setting you use. For example, in our campaign, next to no one has even heard of the drow, and so playing one, and justifying one as a character is relatively easy. If you use a more traditional FResque setting where every single dirt farmer knows exactly how to spot one, writing a backstory explaining how one survives on the surface will be more difficult. Little things like that are important and if they aren't decided beforehand, inconsistencies can appear.
