Story
Michele was born to a humble family of flower farmers. Tired of being a big fish in a small pond, he bought the biggest weapon he could afford and set out to seek his fortune. While possessed of a restless, wandering spirit, Michele is, fundamentally, a coward. He will avoid mano-a-mano combat at all costs, preferring to lay down missile fire from a safe distance. His boy-next-door good looks, earthy charm, and massive crossbow, however, have historically earned him the respect and acceptance of his more rugged peers.

Story
Thorgrim Hammerbrew had never given serious thought to the idea of living an adventurer's lifestyle. As a child, he had dreamt of travelling afar, battling foul creatures and amassing great wealth and reknown, and even as he grew into adulthood these desires never fully faded. However, his strong sense of responsibility toward his family had greatly tempered any childish notions of adventure. He resigned himself to a dull but safe life running his family's brewery, even as he tried to satisfy his need for excitement by volunteering for the dangerous goblin-hunting skirmish parties that ventured deep into the tunnels beneath his people's mountain home.

And then his father tried to marry him off to Brunhilde Grimboulder, a shrew of a girl with a face like a cave bear and a disposition that was even worse.

Thorgrim's feelings of responsibility evaporated almost immediately, and he left home only days after the marriage had been announced. His many siblings were more than capable of managing the brewery without him, after all, and even if he should end up a meal for some hideous monster in an ancient crypt somewhere, well... that was still preferable to marriage to Brunhilde the Beast!

In the two years since he left home, Thorgrim has grown to enjoy life on the road. He has worked as both a caravan guard and a personal bodyguard, which paid well but lacked excitement. He also briefly joined an adventuring company for several excursions into a musty tomb that brought just enough monetary reward and danger to convince him that he had finally found his true calling.

Thorgrim is a very friendly sort, intensely loyal and protective of his companions. His deep, rolling laughter is infectious, and he greatly enjoys a good joke. He loves living out of inns, drinking beer and gambling with friends long into the night. He carries the warhammer of his great-great grandfather Magni Sigmund Hammerbrew, who fell in glorious battle with a frost giant on the eve of Thorgrim's birth, and to whom Thorgrim bears an uncanny resemblance.

The Hard to Hit bonus in Swords & Wizardry was +2 vs men-folk and +4 vs giants. I wasn't sure what to do about that.

edit - I'm assuming I am supposed to be using S&W as a reference?

I am using a S&W-like single save, but in fact it is mostly just a bunch of my house rules on top of the 3LBBs.

A few minor things;
Your strength should be 14.
Your intelligence should be 12.
Dexterity 5 has a -1 modifier.
Charisma 8 has no modifier.

Aside from that it looks great. I'll roll a boon and some hit-points for you, then work you into the game shortly... good luck!

Malibu, I just noticed that Thorgrim's save should actually be 15 rather than 16. He has a Dwarfish benefit and a wisdom benefit.
