Backgrounds initial gear and hiring price Edit

Hiring price for various backgrounds is determined by:
1)initial gear - here we assume initial gear is factored in as its inherent value
2)pre-existing levels - ie L2 costs roughly 500G and later levels cost progressively more
3)base hiring cost - after deducting gear costs and level cost, base hiring costs for many backgrounds end up in the range of 35-150G. Premium backgrounds have higher costs here as well.

As starting gear varies a good deal, the final hiring price for many backgrounds tends to span a fairly wide range. Below are rough ranges for various backgrounds and their commonly found equips.
