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.

Character 83 - The Randomness

A Kellid, living in Brevoy whose mother birthed a dhampir. He is strong, tough and smart. We have to decide what the statistical limitations of what this character could become means. Then we must balance that with what his upbringing as the son of entertainers who goes on to be a murdering follower of the infernal duke Ose tells us. How do we mesh these things together to make a whole character?

Gender: Male
Race: Dhampir
Human Ethnicity: Kellid
Height: 5’ 7”
Weight: 165lbs
Alignment: Lawful Evil

Str: 15
Dex: 11
Con:  14
Int: 14
Wis: 10
Cha: 11

Homeland:City or Metropolis
Parents: Only your father is alive.
Siblings: You have no siblings.
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:Entertainers
Major Childhood Event: [Inheritance] A great sum of wealth or property was bequeathed to you at an early age, providing you with extraordinary means. Daily costs of living have ceased to concern you, and you've learned that there is little that money cannot buy.

Influential Associate: [The Lover] You had a romantic connection in your adolescent years, and this person deeply influenced your personality. Perhaps this was a first love, a casual partner you grew close to, or the one who got away. The experience bolstered your confidence in romantic interactions even though you often find your thoughts still straying toward that special someone from so long ago.

Conflict: [Murder] You killed someone.
Conflict Subject: Civic or military official.
Conflict Motivation: Justice.
Conflict Resolution: [Denial] You feel little if any regret, and deny the event mostly so others won’t judge you. Few if any know of your part in the conflict, and your constant denials are meant to keep it that way.
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: Ose

Romantic Relationship(s): [Current Lover] You are currently involved in a romantic relationship.
Drawback: [Attachment (Object)] You are attached to a precious possession with immense sentimental value and significance. Without it, you are no longer yourself and are prone to suffer from depression, moodiness, or aggressive behavior.

In the comments please tell us how you would tie all these bits of information into a whole character? What class would this character become toward? How did his mother birth a Dhampir? Who did he kill? What made him take up the worship of Ose? And don’t forget to stay tuned Friday when my background hits the CRB.
