Making a new character

I am taking the idea from Black Vulmea over at Really Bad Eggs, of posting a new character I am rolling up.  Unlike Mike's (Black Vulmea's) character, this one will most likely never see the light of day. I really really just enjoy coming up with and fleshing out new characters.  I will keep out all the crunchy stuff like stats.  I like to keep things as system neutral as possible in case you want to steal this and use it in whatever game you want.

First off, let us decide what kind of character we want this person to be.  Hero or Villain? While Heroes are the go to choice, I want to come up with something different.  I want a villain. Not an uber-powerful magic wielding super villain.  I want someone a little more mundane. So, I have decided on a loose concept: a non-magical mid-level villain, a lackey, probably a lieutenant in the BBEG's (Big Bad Evil Guy) army.

Player: Me (Kyle)
Character Name: Dietrich Oldstrong
His name is vaguely German, to give it a faintly menacing Nazi-ish sound, someone you might recognize from the old serials of the 1930s and '40s, someone a hero like Indiana Jones might fight.
Race: Human
Gender: Male
Height: Average between  5'9" and 6'0"
Weight: 165 lbs, thin but in good shape
Eyes: Pale blue, very striking
Hair: Blonde, almost yellow in its bright hues
I am continuing with the Aryan thing, blond hair, blue eyes. Let's continue on to his clothing and gear he carries on his body (We will take a look in his haversack in an upcoming "What's in your haversack?" segment). I will continue with a slightly Nazi design.  Nazi colors and accouterments
Class: Fighter
Alignment: Lawful Evil
Clothing: Black military shirt, grey cotton trousers, with a finely woven cloak of a matching grey. Red knots of rank show on his cloak along with various medals showing personal and military accomplishments.
Gear: Black leather riding gloves and prod. Silvered riding saber, worn with a deadly grace. Two silvered daggers, one on left thigh, the other sticking up out of the top of his down turned boots. Polished and enameled breast plate, with polished gauntlets and vambraces.
