The Weekly Character: Brhiz Finger-Gnawer

Hey guys, hope you're doing well. Again, it's time for this week's character!

You've probably noticed my avatar picture: a crazy screaming ratfolk. He's actually a first level barbarian I built as a pregen for my players when we run 1st level one-shots. I've drawn his portrait in adobe illustrator and used it as my profile pic on various websites, Blogger and Deviantart included.
Here are Brhiz's stats as a PC. His background is quite simple and may be changed to better suit the player's or the story's needs and style. As I imagined him, Brhiz is a 15 year old (which is adult age for a ratfolk PC) barbarian from a ratfolk tribe living in the slums of a vast metropolis. He quickly learnt that the strongest will prevail in such an hostile and unfair place, and he became the leader of a small band of cutthroats. Chased by the local police and almost killed, Brhiz has left his former home and has become a wanderer.
Mood: a bit greedy, quite aggressive.
Goals: nothing in particular. Survival is already a challenge for him.
What he loves: eating humanoid fingers, hence his name.
What he hates: any form of legal authority. He believes it's impossible to actually create a completely equal society. Strength is the only thing that counts at the end of the day.

  1. oh god i'm dying.
    His way of thinking is so stupid, cruel... and extremely tender!
    i dunnow if i want to hug him or crush him with a giant boot.

  2. errrr guess what, he thinks a hug is better. Maybe a hug and some ham and beef and cheese, if you happen to have some.
