Born: Hamburg, Germany
Weight: 165 lbs.
Wealth: 160 g.p.
Father's profession: Blacksmith. Character has the ability to forge iron and practice other skills of the trade. Through advised maintenance, all metal goods of the party have a +2 save vs. destruction. Character has a +1 "to hit" with hammer.
Family: Father and mother, Martin and Freida, plus two younger brothers, Thomas and Richard, and all four grandparents reside in Hamburg.
Inter-relations: While the character's family treats him with moderate concern, the character's past behavior has caused most persons in the city to treat him with enmity and a hearty dislike. The character has been banned from all establishments in the south quarter of Hamburg (which is a large city after all), with the exception of the town market in that quarter.
Youth: The character's mentor, recognizing that the character much needed to move on, obtained a writ of passage for the character that enables him to move freely (no tolls or town fees) within lands controlled by the Cities of Hamburg and Lubeck, or the County of Kiel. However - and this really bites - the character's departure required that he has not quite completed his training. While the character will be a 1st level, he starts 'in the hole' as it were, with an experience total of minus 200 ... thus requiring 2,201 to reach 2nd level. The character has always had trouble learning things, and though the total age has yet to be calculated, it will be 7 years greater than a typical human fighter.
Toughness: The character has a extraordinarily strong upper body and arms, and has the ability to use a weapon up to seven and a half pounds one-handedly. Moreover, the character is resistant to arachnid poisons, and suffers only half damage from them.
