Good characters who come with their own background and story are what really brings a RPG to life. Generic monsters are great, but an interesting character has to bring more to the table that tooth and claw. This is my collection of player and non player characters features in my RPG rounds.
Pathfinder Kingmaker Characters
Character from my Pathfinder Kingmaker campaign.
Pop Culture Characters
I love a good pop culture reference in my RPGs and like to drop a well known character in cameo here or there.
