Ever get sick of Hollywood actors and actresses with their beautiful bodies and perfect smiles, or those flawlessly airbrushed supermodels? Ever hankered after heroes that were ugly and unpleasant, that made you sick to look at ’em or faint from their foul manners? No…? Oh. Just me then.
This is Fugly. I don’t think he was every officially christened, but everybody called him that so he assumed it was his name!
I’ve played Fugly in a few D&D games and he came number 3 in my ‘Favorite 5 Player Characters list.’ He is a classic example of Low Comliness i.e. he is physically unattractive – not to be confused with a low charisma character like Crunt. Fugly actually has a sweet nature that endeers him to people if only they will look past his appearance and get to know him (unfortunately few do).
He is a half-orc and his ugliness is a result of birth deformities which meant he was picked on by both Orcs and Humans and beaten regularly as a result. This left him with scars, a broken nose, cheekbone etc. that made him look even uglier. Unfortunately people can be cruel and judge by appearance. He also has low intellegence but I think that comes from being beaten round the head a little too often. Sad, eh?
