"Zdomek: Male Half-orc Fighter, NG. Str 12, Dex 13, Con 9, Int 7, Wis 12, Cha 5. Zdomek is tall, with curly blonde hair and soft green eyes. He wears ring mail and wields a greatsword."
A guide to the tools and generators for creating and fleshing out D&D Player-Characters.

PC Names and Creation
For a character in a hurry then fast character gives a full character sheet. You can specify race, class, level and more.
If you're not sure what character to make try the Random Character Generator which gives race, class, background, name, age , bonds and more. For a different take there is a DM's Guild supplement that gives you random tables for choosing your character with most official 5E supplements.
And every character needs a choice of trinkets.
For the Classes
For Barbarians I can offer up barbarian names
Fighters might benefit from a Nickname
Rogues like tricks and gear so 100 magic items for a rogue will be of interest.
For Sorcerers of a wild bent there are extra wild surges
I'll keep this guide updated so please suggest 5E D&D character generators in the comments or on twitter to @DuncanThom
