The Weekly Character: Who's the Halfling?

Today, we begin the first regular column here on Halfling's Den. It's called The Weekly Character, because... well, because every week I'll give you a new NpC or PC that you can draw inspiration from or use in your own Pathfinder game!
For this first issue, I present you with the Halfling himself!
That’s me! :D
Ok, to make things clear, although I’m a human, I’m only 5,42 feet tall (damn, my father should’ve kicked my derriére a couple more times when I was a kid). After ten years of gaming, I’m universally considered to be the “group’s enthusiast”. It's me who always buys the new tabletop game, or notices the new RPG, or talks about the new class archetype. I'm quite well-versed in the art of speech, and usually get what I want by persuading people (I have no evil agenda, however!). I'm also inevitably destined to be the Game Master every single time we play (not that I complain, but still... I'd love someone else to try taking the GM's scepter once in a while). Given my interest in map-making and my real-life statistics, this is... Araknophobia, The Halfling expert/bard!
