Miles Gloriosus, Paladin of the Blood Knights

Well, I did it. I created my own Miles Gloriosus on World of Warcraft. The idea of playing a braggart soldier is highly appealing. So, lets create his stats using the World of Warcraft Roleplaying Game (White Wolf) and Unearthed Arcana from Wizards of the Coast (available on d20srd.org).

Roleplaying Tips: Miles Gloriosus has overweening pride. He thinks that he's the most admired, most powerful warrior in all the Horde. He believes he is a man's man, more handsome, intelligent, and personable than Thrall. He also believes that he is the Paragon of Blood Elven Virtue. Play him up by bragging about his attributes.

If you need inspiration in playing him, watch A Funny Thing Happened On the Way to the Forum and pay close attention to Miles Gloriosus; and the classic play Miles Gloriosus ("Famous or Boastful Soldier") by Titus Marcus Plautus (I included a video link below).
