Character Profile: F'reyr the Savage Dwarf

I created this character for a playtest of an old school fantasy retro-clone. I liked it so much that I just had to share it here.

Str 15, Dex 10, Con 18, Int 9, Wis 14, Cha 9

Equipment: Greataxe, hammer (backup weapon), pickaxe (backup weapon), crowbar (backup weapon), shovel (backup weapon), flail, hide armor, belt pouch, clothing, backpack, large sack, iron spikes, torches, wooden stakes, flint/steel, block/tackle, waterskin, ration, rope 50', snare trap.

He has the personality of a WarHammer Slayer. Most of his equipment can double as weaponry. He'll grab the backup weapons in the order listed if something happens to his greataxe, and they are all strapped to his belt for easy reach...except his flail, which he is loathe to use but has in his backpack just in case.

He normally eats whatever he kills (civilized, uncivilized, animals, monsters, etc.), usually raw, but he has one day worth of rations for emergencies (in truth, it's been a while since he checked the freshness of his emergency ration).

He's looking for an epic doom, not to die at the hand of a rat or a goblin. He'll use his identify weakness skill to point out weak enemies for his comrades to kill while he chases the toughest looking opponent.

I'm still trying to figure out what his name has to do with his background and why he's chasing death. "Freyr" means "lord" in Old Norse.
