Well, either you want to become Untrustworthy, or you or someone else has given their Artefact to Sphinx (I don’t know why you would want to do that).

Except just for the fun of creating an impossible situation, because Sphinx will now have to declare one of their (randomly chosen) backgrounds, even though they default to having no backgrounds.

I become untrustworthy.

Since the rules say, “Each Explorer (which isn’t the Expedition Leader) has none or two Backgrounds”, I don’t even default to no Backgrounds. I don’t even have no backgrounds out of which I could choose, so I’m declaring nothing?

Each Explorer (which isn’t the Expedition Leader) has none or two Backgrounds, which is privately tracked by the Expedition Leader, and Explorers default to having no Backgrounds.

Per the second sentence, you default to having no Backgrounds, which is very logical since you don’t have Backgrounds.
