'Ware the Moloch
Collected below are some brief character ideas (with power selections and general stats) that might spark inspiration, provide a baseline for your own character, or even end up adopted whole-cloth.
You could mix and match most of these elements with varying levels of difficulty. Swapping out a race has less mechanical impact on most of these, though it obviously alters some of the story stuff. Changing class within role (Defender/Controller/Leader/Striker) is usually pretty easy, though it will alter powers and some other elements.
The first list of concepts are characters which fit established expectations (genre and/or cultural within the game).
The second list show some of the reaches you can make when creating a character, and include examples of individuals whose occupation/personality are unexpected.
None of this is to say the first or second list is better; it’s just an example of how far afield the concepts are.
