Sample Characters for DnD d20 SRD Game

Home brew rules can be found here
As an authors note, since I have no setting to base this I'm basing this in the setting I know best: 1000s Europe. I draw mostly from my byzantine history knowledge, and I'm imagining the capital begins in a kind of Constantinople headed south east to Manzikert.

(8); AC: 12 (+2 BAB; +1 Dex, -1 Size), ff-11; DR: 2/- ; BAB/Gr:+1/+3; Attack: Hoof +3 melee (1d3+2); Full Attack: 2 Hooves +3 melee (1d3+2); S/R: 10 ft./5 ft; SA: -- ; SQ: Low Light Vision, Scent; Saves: F16, R15, W11; Abilities: Str 15, Dex 13, Con 14, Int 2, Wis 12, Cha 4; Skills: Per +5, Athletics +5; Feats: Endurance; Alignment: None;


Clan Dunnum

Grandfather and Chief:
Father: Gritter’mane (age 230; Early 60s)

Twin Sister: Rallyah (*Heir*) (118; early 30s)
Younger Sister: Katlane (age 94; Late 20s)
Younger Sister: Bethany (age 82 ; Mid 20s)

The Dunnum Lands.
123,000 mountain acres (not flat land)

Complications
* Loves his sister, Rallyah and wants her to have a chance as the Clan Shield Mother (the female equivalent of Chief). She stands a better chance with him in self exile.  
* Secret: His Father Gritter’mane has broken down since the breach of the Dunnum Hearth, 5 years ago. His claims that it was his “faulty intelligence” that made his father decide to the Clan defenders to hold the eastern wall, which resulted for a successful enemy feint and an attack from the south. He has taken the duty and self exile of frontier patrol as a result.
* Secret: His father let a young orc warrior live, an attack of compassion. The orc was a young warrior, who was crippled and blamed him, Gritter’man, for all the suffering of his people. Wanting to prove a bigger man, he let the orc escape... not knowing he was bearing valuable intelligence. In the frontier, Rulfar has lost the taste for killing orcs (he has no bonus against orcs).
* 3 year ago, when he left he went as far east as he could. He went so far as to find lands unknown to dwarves and elves. His brief stay earned the fierce hatred of an enemy who will cross the great steppes and deserts for revenge.
* Upon return, he got the most disliked assignment any dwarf could ever concieve - being oathbound to serve an Elven Lord (Duke Tytian).

Role-Playing notes.
The trick to this character’s persuasion is always being someone else. The Basil knows only enough to temporarily pass off as someone else. he/she never reveals her underlying personality and has many layers of roles and personalities. Each personality is used to keep their own “credibility and expectations”. It allows Vasil to use any avenue. It appears that player has multiple NPCs.
John Merkant -The Honest Merchant (Diplomacy and gather info). A mustachioed man who knows his crafts and wood work. Has little words and serious about business.
Sister Mary Weather - The Flirtatious Nun (Diplomacy and gather info). A dirty minded old nan, who likes the boys and men.
Brother Gold  - The Proud and Avaricious Elderly Monk (Bluff and Gather info). A monk with so many “relics” and a greedy and miserly horder.
Fish Sticks - The wandering street urchin (stealth and perception). Scruffy independent and headstrong youth of indeterminate gender.
Greentooth - Cowardly Mercenary (stealth and bluff). A weakling of a mercenary, will do whatever to please.
Mendel of House Kirynn - Ascetic Noble (Inspire Courage and Competence). Balding One eyed Veteran Knight. Speaks very well and a inspiration.
Vasil - the Unrequited Poet (Gather info and Perform). A handsome youth, who loves the ladies and men.
