The style of these characters varies wildly from a quick paragraph and basic stat block to full-blown character sheet. The reason is that some are actual characters I've played (or planned to play and never got the opportunity) and others were NPCs that I used during the course of a campaign, but there was never any direct conflict so full stats weren't really necessary. I find it handy to have a bunch of names and basic backgrounds on hand during a session because, inevitably, a player will ask what the shop keeper looks like even when it's not really relevant. Far from a bad thing, but it's caught me off guard.

Jaya is a human monk -- member of the Order of Claren Elian on Krynn. After being forced in the middle of the war with the Dark Queen, he has found a new calling, and reason to revise the order's ways. Here are Jaya's history and stat block.

Nym is a half-elven ranger I'm currently playing in a local D&D group I recently located. Nothing spectacular at the moment since we're just needing to get a few levels before we start the primary adventure campaign -- The Return the Temple of Elemental Evil. Here's Nym's history and stat block.

Pedro was born and raised in Omagua. He lived in the slums all his life and dreamed of becoming rich and living the good life. He eventually worked his way out of Omagua, sneaking away into the jungle late one night. He wandered west for a time, treading cautiously around the Arkon territory, north into the Incan kingdom. From there, he found his way to a port city and stowed away on board.

Augustus Fairchild is the character I am playing in my current Rifts campaign. It's a great game so far, so here he is...

This is a character I made for a PBP game some time ago that I had to drop out of due to time constraints. The background is a bit tailored to that game, but he's an interesting character nonetheless. He was last seen in a wilderness assault against a large group of brodkil demons.
