Legacy is a Background that represents the surviving works and accomplishments of a wraith. This can be a work of art, a building she designed, a company she founded, or even immaterial legacies like a scientific theory she developed or even a word she came up with that people still use. When a wraith visits the place of his Legacy (or a place of significance to the Legacy in the case of immaterial Legacies), he can heal his Corpus through the deep feeling of affirmation.
Not to be confused with the Memoriam Background, which represents the actual memories that the living hold of the wraith him or herself. Whether or not anyone remembers the Wraith as a person or the Wraith's name is not important to the Legacy background- just that something the wraith did of significance lives on still.
