Character Benchmarks

This list speculates about the characteristics of many fictional heroes. There are famous Greek, Arthurian and fantasy book heroes in this list. The fantasy genre displays an amazing range of abilities with many characters falling well outside of the Normal Characteristic Maxima. The list is specific to fantasy characters and only hits the high points of well-known heroes, but it may give the players ideas on where they want to go (and more importantly - where they can go) with their character.
