Old school games like BG 1/2, NWN 1/2 etc kept characters separate from the story/savegame. This allows you to pull in characters to different modules and replay games with an existing character. Most modern games have the character as an aspect of the story and is contained within that. I find it hard to really connect with characters I make if they don't exist beyond a particular play through.
EDIT: I thought this was the BG3 general forum but it appears to just be the general forum for Larian Studios
