What is your favorite personal player character or non-player character you've created?

Fire Cleric

The 18th day of #30DaysofDarkSun is here and the question is "What is your favorite personal player character or non-player character you've created?"

I've only played in a couple of Dark Sun games as a player, so I don't have a favorite Player Character, however, I've run many games and my favorite NPC is Kuur'Ta'All, a Preserver (Necromancer)/Fire Cleric. Check out Kuurt's background and game stats.

Here's Kuurt's description: Kurt could pass for either a short elf or a half-elf and dresses in supple Carru leather clothes died a dark red. Strapped to his pointing right arm is an obsidian wrist razor and on his other wrist a small bone buckler shield is strapped down. His head is covered in red flame-like markings that almost look to be scars, bright red stubble obscures the markings somewhat. And his coal black eyes shine in the mid-day sun. Several pieces of jewelry adorn his body including several bone and obsidian rings on both hands, a necklace with bone and obsidian chips, obsidian earrings, and a thin obsidian bar through the bridge of his nose. A large disk of obsidian hangs around his neck with some kind of red stone in the shape of a flame emblazoned on the disk. A pack is strapped to his back as well as a long bow. A quiver of arrows rest on his left hip and an obsidian knife is tucked into his belt on his right side.

His coal black eyes gleam with both purpose and direction. His firm jaw sometimes reminds others of a noble's or templar's and gives him a look of seriousness at all times, but his kind smile show his soft heart. His expressions and demeanor are often that of a veteran campaigner, but his skin could not have seen more than 25 summers.
