Cyberpunk 2077 offers a wide variety of character customization options. Learn all the available settings for your character's appearance, and how aspects like male and female gender and your character's Lifepath affect the game.
List of Contents
Like many RPGs, you can choose your gender (body type), and fully customize how your character looks, right down to their facial hair, eye color, and more.
The following is a complete list of the customizable features of your character.
|Voice Tone||Skin Tone||Skin Type|
|Eyes Color||Eyebrows||Eyebrow Color|
|Beard Color*||Cyberware||Facial Scars|
|Facial Tattoos||Piercings||Piercing Color|
|Teeth||Eye Makeup||Eye Makeup Color|
|Lip||Lip Makeup Color||Cheek Makeup|
|Cheek Makeup Color||Blemishes||Blemish Color|
|Body Tattoos||Body Scars||-|
*Only available in Male Character Creation.
The gender you choose determines which Romance options are available to you. Be sure to confirm the romanceable characters first, and if missing out on a specific character is a dealbreaker, be sure to choose the character who can romance them.
|Male Character Creation||Female Character Creation|
The settings available during character creation also vary by gender. The set of hairstyles available to Male and Female characters is completely different, and settings related to Beards are exclusive to Male characters.
This feature actually depends on the “Voice Tone” setting, not the “Body Type” setting.
If players choose the Masculine voice option, other characters will refer to them with he/him pronouns, and male-oriented terms like “choomba”.
If players choose the Feminine voice option, other characters will refer to them with she/her pronouns, and female-oriented terms – Jackie seems to prefer “chica” and “hermana”.
One of the main things you need to decide on is the backstory of your character. This unlocks special options when you reach certain story checkpoints.

Lifepaths and Best Lifepath to Choose
Unlike your character's Lifepath, which determines story options available to them, Attributes determine their stats and potential both in and out of battle.
Attributes will determine what Perks your character can learn, so choose Attributes at the start of the game which match your favorite playstyle! There is no way to change Attributes which have already been set, so be sure to place your starting Attributes carefully.
Best Starting Attributes
Regardless of your character's appearance, lifepath, or stats, their name will always be simply V.
Unfortunately, it's not possible to change the name to anything else, so we'll have to be satisfied with the other available options for now.
All of the aspects of Character Customization are 100% permanent. At the moment, there has been no confirmation that any of the selected features can be changed at any point during the game.
|Gender (Body Type)||PERMANENT|
If you want to go back on your decision for any of these aspects, you'll need to start a new game, so be sure to check the differences between each thoroughly before making your decisions.

I'd really like to see a flowchart with all the Main Quests, Side Quests, and Gigs that exist so we can easily see what you need to do before unlocking XYZ quest (kind of like they did here https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/cyberpunk-2077-walkthrough-main-story-quest-list-main-missions-order-5077 except with everything, not just the Main ones)
