Alright! We're almost done. Just a couple more things to pick.
Next up is your Background, what this character did with her life before becoming an adventurer.
Your background can give you extra proficiencies, weapons, riches etc.
For instance, she might have been on track to become a knight before she ran away from home with a few choice servants, and now is followed by three of her retainers tasked with keeping her safe, cooking her food, and trying to persuade her to come back home and stop all this ghastly "raging barbarian" nonsense!. [The Noble Knight background]
Or maybe she's an ex-pirate, who used her enormous strength, volcanic fury and acid breath to rob people on the high seas, giving her a fearsome reputation in coastal cities, equally likely to get her a drink or arrested. [Pirate background].
Maybe she was even a minstrel, who one day just snapped and beat a heckler half to death with a lute? [Entertainer background]

Choose from this list; http://engl393-dnd5th.wikia.com/wiki/Backgrounds

For the sake of simplicity, we're only going to use backgrounds from the Players Handbook [It'll say if it is or not next to it]
After this, all we need to pick is your gear, name and appearance!

Greataxe.

Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

One must never tolerate evil. For first, evil is tolerated; then embraced, then ailed as being good, then it becomes unlawful to do what is actually good.

Okay I have no idea about a name but I've had a pretty vivid image this whole time but do not have enough time to type it out right now
My vote is for 1: (a) and 2: (b)

Crash Williams!

Frigg Briggs!
Njordr Nills!

Frigg Briggs is a very good name O^O

Appearance-wise I was thinking big and muscly and really sharp features and really sharp teeth and dark dark shoulder-length hair and claw hands and dark skin and face scales and generally attractive but very intimidating

YOU ARE FRIGG BRIGGS and you are a huge, muscular, intimidating, yet oddly attractive giant dragon lady. You confuse people.



There's a bigger list if y'all want it.
