Every survivor has a story of who they were before the plague, or of something that happened before you met them. They reveal it to you in three parts when they reach level 3, 6 and 9. A speech bubble appears to indicate that a survivor is ready to talk. After hearing the next part of their backstory, you get to pick a new perk for them. Which ones you can choose from are dependent on the survivor's skill, and elements from the backstory.
