I don't know if this might be a thing for the player's guide, but I had this idea for this AP, which might work for other Groups as well and could be entered as advice in the pg:
Everybody get's to make his own pc, roll's his stats, selects class, race, spells, skills, etc. and that's it.
After that, they hand their charactersheet over to me, the DM.
I give that sheet (in secret) to one of the other Players, who than has to come up with a background-story for this rolled-up pc. That player doesn't know yet who's pc this is.
This way, the pc's really have no idea who they are, other than knowing what they are cabable of (their pc-sheet).
During the campaign (if this works, I obviously haven't read the AP yet) I will Hand out pieces of their background-story.
This way, they really have to figure out who they are, and where they came from...
