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.
