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.

Daine was born in the eastern-most territories of the Elven empires, growing up with a family with a great deal of heritage in the empire’s military. Each of Daine’s ancestors did their part in the defense -- his father in cavalry, mother in the War Mage’s division, grandfathers in the Griffon Riders, among others. When Carthon laid siege to the empire, it was only natural that his family took up arms against the Drow raiders.

Anyone coming within a hundred miles of New Caldera is likely to encounter one of their pro-human patrols. The long-range patrols tend to be the most lenient when it comes to non-humans and Breach Creatures so that they may maintain their cover as travelers and drifters. If a member of this unit is interacting with a non-human, it is because they are gathering intelligence and evaluating the threat level posed by the other party.

Dagmar was born in the darkest reaches of space in the Three Galaxies… Aboard a freighter, of course. He and his littermates came to be nineteen of your years ago on board a garbage scow bound for the United Worlds of Warlock - the last galactic empire to tolerate the Ratanoid presence.

The dragon noble houses need to keep their conquered subjects in line and what better way to do that than an armed presence in major cities? I created this organized unit to patrol Hollowfaust's Enclave as antagonists to the players operating as part of a rebellion.

Queen's Ranch was first home to the Queen family and has continued to be so for generations after the Fall. The family's story is both tragic and heroic. These are the stats I created for the Queen family that you can use to get started with the family as an antagonist to your player crew.
