Or put another way, The manner in which you previously engaged with the elements that make up the society is part of your backstory and the manner in which you interact with the society on an ongoing basis is also a thing represented by a different mechanic in which none of those elements are the same.
Why are they different things? Why do they need to be separate? It just feels really busy and... well redundant. This would have been an interesting mechanical element to tie up with faction but I really don't see the point in highlighting both series of divisions with in the group.
Really just having one or the other would have been sufficient.
