Going over my old toons from past games I discovered some sort of weird backstories, so I was curious as to the nature of everyone else's weirdest character.
My weirdest was surprisingly just a human fighter, but his backstory which I wrote several years ago surpised me upon rediscovery.
It was pretty long so I spare yall the old copy/paste but basically he was the youngest son of two famous opera performers. He had a sweet high voice as a child and so it was decided for him that he would be a castrato. For those of you who doesn't know what that is, it means his testicles were removed to circumvent some of puberty and preserve his voice. Anyway, he spent his teen years playing female roles and envied his older brothers who played powerful masculine roles. So he starts reading stories of knights of old, and kind of pulls a Don Quixote and becomes obsessed with being a brave and masculine knight.
I remember role playing him a little bit. He had lots of complexes (gender confusion, etc), and cross dressed frequently, but always justified it as being tactical (all of his grand plans included him being disguised as a woman).
He also had an oversized singing codpiece with a face at the end. I don't remember how he acquired this in the campaign.
But yeah weird character. What are your weirdest?
