CRB is a repository of all the creative things that float through my mind about the RPG Pathfinder. Two major features are random character generation and building characters based on the god they worship. Anything that seems like it adds to the creative aspects of the game will pop up from time to time, including location descriptions, adventure ideas and even short stories. CRB won't just be my own creativity, it will open the floor to anyone who has an idea sparked by what I present to you.

Random Roll 67 - The Randomness

Gnolls generally tend to be chaotic and their society breeds pure evil, but this week’s random rolls is a Lawful Neutral Gnoll who follows the god of rulership. A nice spread of stats except for a low intelligence gives us quite an array of classes to choose from so we’ll need to really look at his background to choose which class and why. So let’s see what we can do with these rolls.

Nationality: Mana Wastes
Age:  15
Height: 6’ 2”
Weight: 262 lbs
Alignment:Lawful Neutral

Str: 12
Dex: 15
Con:  14
Int: 9
Wis: 12
Cha: 16

Homeland:Gnoll Settlement
Parents: Only your mother is alive.
Siblings: You have 5 siblings.
- younger brother
- older brother
- older sister
- older sister
- younger brother
Circumstance of Birth: [Middle-Class Birth] You were born to the middle class, which includes merchants, artisans, and tradespeople. You likely grew up in a good-sized settlement, and one of your parents is likely associated with a guild or other trade organization. As a free person, you don't experience the bondage of serfdom or peasantry, but you also lack the privilege of the nobility.
Parent's Profession: Artisans
Major Childhood Event: [Betrayal] A friend or family member whom you trusted more than anyone else betrayed you. You have never fully trusted anyone since and prefer to rely on your own abilities rather than place your trust in others.

Influential Associate:[The Fiend] In your adolescent years, you dealt with or were possessed by a fiend who lent you raw power at a time of great need. This experience tainted your body and mind and changed your life. Some part of the demon remains inside you like an old friend, influencing you toward destructive ends.

Conflict: [Humiliation] You publicly humiliated or scandalized someone with either true or slanderous information.
Conflict Subject: Noble.
Conflict Motivation: Pleasure.
Conflict Resolution: [No Guilt] Either guilt is for the weak, or you know you made the right decision. You might not openly brag about your part in the conflict, but you don’t deny it when confronted either.
Deity/Religious Philosophy: Horus

Romantic Relationship(s): [Several Inconsequential Relationships] You have had many lovers but no long-lasting, meaningful relationships.
Drawback: [Pride] You present an image to the world that can’t be tarnished. When someone questions your motives, criticizes your actions, or insults your honor or pride, you question his friendship or count him among your enemies until he makes amends.

(Trait) Artisan
(Trait) Kin Guardian
(Trait) Merchant
(Trait) Possessed
(Trait) Scrapper

(Story Feat) Damned
(Drawback) Pride

In the comments please tell us what character you would make with these disparate pieces information? What class would this Gnoll naturally gravitate towards? What Did his father diel? What kind of fiend possessed him? Why has he chosen Horus to worship? And don’t forget to stay tuned Friday when my background hits the CRB.
