[Character Creation] "To the Berezina River" game

If you are interested in playing in this game please review the information below for creating your character. Any questions please feel free to ask.

DO NOT post your choices in this thread but rather PM them to me.
Feel free to ask questions in this thread and also go ahead and post here to let everyone know when you are done creating your character.

CHARACTER CREATION

It is late November 1812 and Napoleon's Russian Campaign has collapsed and the survivors are making their way west towards. You are a lower ranking soldier of the once might Grand Armee. The Battle of Krasnoi ended a little over a day ago over and the French have resumed their retreat out of Russia. The enemy is all around and in hot pursuit.
Your goal is to cross the Berezina River before you are hunted down. Survival is your only goal.

Next, review and follow the steps listed below;
  • Your character will have 5 Stats and 8 primary skills/talents making each character unique.
  • You can choose any of the military occupations found at the following link to be your character's specialty:
    Types of military forces in the Napoleonic Wars

    You will start with the typical equipment for the military occupation you choose. You have most of your basic equipment with you that you can carry (since you will not be mounted even if your specialty is cavalry) and you have NO food or water.
  • You can play a character of any Nationality involved in the Russian Invasion as long as you can justify their presence in the immediate area. You can check the following link as reference of possibilities;
    Order of battle of the French invasion of Russia

Spirit (Mental Toughness): 1
Vigor (Physical Toughness): 1

Skills
Next, assign skill bonuses based on the following guidelines (skills that end up without a + bonus are considered unskilled/untrained);
Choose 2 of the following skills and rate at +3

Choose 3 of the following skills and rate at +1

Boating (Agility):

Just wanted to add. Due to the variance of nationalities and military specialty/occupation combinations to choose from and me not being totally up on what exact personal weapons each might have been equipped with, I am asking that everyone who has access to that information PM it to please. Basically I need to know, Musket, Rifle, Carbine, Pistol, Sabre, Bayonet, etc (everyone will have a knife). If you are not sure, no biggie. I will see if I can research it before we start.

For other, general equipment, you will all have that stuff such as a backpack, blanket, canteen, and so on, so no need for you to worry about or track that. I will be tracking ammunition though, in the form of "shots" left.
