As i have said before my Fallen London RPG uses Savage Worlds (Amazon.com) as a base rule set. I’ll be outlining some of the characters I’ve made here that can be used as both NPCs, one-shot characters or as pregenerated character for a campaign.
Savage Worlds Character Sheet: https://www.peginc.com/freebies/SWcore/SWDCharacterSheet.pdf
Name: Euphemia Lamprouge
Setting Rules: Fallen London
Quote: "Oh goodness."
Ambition: To become enrolled in Benthic College so that she can learn what they won’t teach her on the Surface.
Charisma: +2 Pace: 6 Parry: 2 Toughness: 6
12g shells (x10)
Double Barrel Shotgun: 1-3d6 damage. Fires 2 shots
Heroic: Always helps those in need
Bad Eyes: -2 to notice and attack rolls without glasses
Loyal: never betrays or disappoints friends
Surfacer’s Health: +1 toughness and +2 to resist all environmental effects

As an NPC: Euphemia can be used as a clerk for a bookstore who may ask the players to help her find someone to sponsor her at the University and be used as a land lady for players looking to live in a Room above a Bookshop.
As a player: Her ambition seems very straightforward, so be sure to make the player jump through some hoops before you let them enroll. Once they’re there they can attend classes to increase their knowledge of chemistry, medicine, science and healing.
