Going with another Traveller character. Initial stats rolls B7A392. And an odd roll for a male, and a 2 for human. A big brute of a man from way down in society's ladder. And none too bright. He looks to be the perfect thug! The Outlaw book from Clement Sector has a wide variety of criminal types: cleaner, driver, drug dealer, forger, hit man, smuggler and prisoner. Though prisoner is only if you get caught! And the best chance of his actually surviving is the drug dealer career.
And in the end, this would not be a character I'd want to play - it ended up pretty depressing. But it is an NPC with a very rich background that could somehow come out if a character was feeling charitable.
Clement Sector's character generation starts actually in childhood, so perhaps we'll see the path that led our thug to a life of crime.
First, I'll use the 3rd version of the book I just got for this part of things (the Outlaw book uses an earlier edition so has more random rolls). He comes from a low gravity world and picks up Survival (Low Gravity-1, Low Pressure-1) and Vacc Suit-0. Some small, nearly airless world then (It was Dade of the Dade subsector for those who play in the Clement Sector). His primary language is the Imperial standard Galanglic.
Youth Events: Somewhere between 4 and 8: Our family suffers a severe financial loss. Lose even more social! B7A391. Yes, this does appear to be a dismal start! Between 9-12 years old, my life was calm and peaceful. Living in an alley may seem calm... Then disaster: as a teenager, my parents are killed in a serious accident! I lose even more social and even my education is dropped. B7A381 (social can't go below 1? not entirely sure). Somehow, though, at the orphanage I apparently take some time to study with what feeble mind I do have and pick up Science (Chemistry 0). Yes, we all see where this is going.
Leaving the orphanage behind, our drug dealer picks up an eclectic set of skills after barely surviving with an 8 (+1 due to his endurance): Broker-0, Carouse-0, Gun Combat (Pistol-0), Persuade-0 and Recon-0. Somehow, he meets some extremely wealthy customers, and picks up 2 contacts (and one will have to be at the station now). He fails any sort of promotion.
