I'm in the process of making my character (a human cleric, if you're curious), I've just been busy with work these last few days. Hopefully I'll be able to post tomorrow.

Looks good so far as I can tell. Add "Acolyte" to your background box. Technically your Ideal isn't an option for a Cleric, but considering it lines up well with Karuma, who can be your patron God, I'm fine letting that pass :3

Interesting combination of characters at the moment. An Urchin that turned to dark forces for power, and an Acolyte desiring change in the world. A duo who would likely change the world if they can agree on what the result should be, I can imagine :3

Added in now. I assumed the various personality tables were just guidelines for if you couldn't think of your own character, so I only used them when I couldn't think of my own. And yes, I'd intended for Karuma to be my patron

Obsidian is a Captain in the Vantadurn Guard, a force that values strong discipline and iron resolve. It is not known why Vantadurn maintains and equips such a force, as the city has made no hostile overtures towards its neighbours; however, its members are well respected among fighting companies across Carandia. The Dwarves of Vantadurn show favour to Grenator, the God of Forges, and Obsidian is no exception in this, following the ways of the smith as her kin before her have done for centuries.

Obsidian is currently angling for promotion, certain that her resolve and ability is needed further up the chain of command. However, the Guard puts a lot of value on combat experience and outside knowledge, which requires those who wish to lead to prove themselves in adventures and battles across the land. Her trials to make Captain required her to defeat a large creature, in her case a roaming bear, to prove her mettle in hard combat. To this end, Obsidian seeks to make a name for herself in the outside world, and intends to return home with some powerful defensive artefact or weapon with which to bolster her homeland's armoury.

Looks cool so far, though I must why a Captain of the Guard would be out and about sidequesting from their job? Wouldn't that be a goal, or ultimate adventure reward for the character?
As an alternative, maybe they can be connected to some fantastic weapons or armour crafting technique like via familial prestige (also explains size of coin purse), and they're currently a soldier working their way up the ranks, with their current task being a scouting roll to see what the island beyond Vantadurn is dealing with?
This would be minimal character backstory changes and allows for growth and for them to carve a real name for themselves?

I'm over here generating some NPCs so I don't have to pull them out of thin air later.

I have some idea about having been sent on a quest (possibly politically motivated to get her out the way) to find some important relic, perhaps a magical core of some sort to power a war machine. Your suggestion works too though - I'll keep tweaking for now.

What system are we using for Stat roles? I've used a few different ones in the past, so I'm not even sure which is standard, and the WotC basic rules pdf doesn't say anything.

EDIT: I've added on a line about why a Captain would be out adventuring. Any good?

I have a thread for online dice rollers here. For now, if you just want to do your basic six rolls, use the Tari Dadi link, and throw in "6D20" and you got your stat scores.

I like the addition to her backstory. I'll have to see about making some legendary artifacts for you to fight for in future ;)

I am more concerned about having too many crippling weaknesses than I am having many strengths. I'd rather have a well rounded character than a glass canon or one trick pony, but that is just my personal preference. I am more than happy to roll and use the rolled stats to inform how the character acts.

I should probably point out that I too used the standard array for my characteristics.

When I find a little time I'll write up a little backstory for Nyx and either post it in here or PM it to the GM.

Edit: Ok, had a bit of time togo over what I'd missed and edit the backstory properly.
Stat roll

From a young age Hlaine always wanted to explore, if he saw a river or a village from atop the trees he'd want to investigate but he was always told he was too young. Then, when that excuse no longer kept him in check he found nobody would accompany him, preferring instead to play games he had no interest in, so Hlaine set about exploring on his own. By the time he came of age he knew the area around his village better than almost anyone, even better than some of the village elders. A few close calls with wolves and other beasts taught him the advantage of caution, and his stealth steadily improved. When he came of age he opted to join the local military, quickly earning a reputation for stealth and for tracking which got him into scouting where he showed a knack for hunting and survival as well. Having served for 30 years and seeing no further prospects for advancement Hlaine left the military in search for more profitable ventures. He currently takes on anything from hunting monsters, especially the vile Orcs and Kobolds; to tracking down thieves and even, on one occasion, runaway children from rich households because the "distraught" parents were prepared to pay. Spending so much of his youth exploring alone Hlaine struggles to form strong bonds with people unless they have somehow won his trust, usually in combat. This has not been made easier by losing most of the few friends he managed to make  in the military.
