Each past life profile is a secret backstory - a description of your PC's former life, how they died, and what mysteries are left unresolved. All of this begins unknown to the PC, something they gradually uncover as the game progresses, if they explore the clues provided by the profile (or the GM).
Each profile has multiple specific crunch elements too. As the PC uncovers details about their former life, aspects of it manifest, granting bonus abilities - and occasionally drawbacks - trace echoes reverberating from the past.
Each profile has suggestions for campaign plotlines and how they might resolve - though we all know no storyline survives contact with the players... which is one of the things which makes this game great.
