So. Finally have the time to reply too.
First, let's get into the character idea I had. A big part of his backstory is mainly based on the additional information on orc culture in "Volo's Guide to Monsters", especially the different deities and their followers. He is a half-orc barbarian, but I'm tempted into multiclassing him with the bard-class sooner or later... just for the sake of character-development and a neat little roleplaying-idea I am fiddling with. But first I'm going to see if I'll play him at all.
Karthucc, or just "Kar" for friends or allies is a half-orc, whose mother fled their old tribe after the orc marauders of Gruumsh, Bahgtru and Ilneval were nearly completely eradicated during a series of raids and the followers of Shargaas took over, threatening to kill each and every creature that was not purely orc - despising even the half-orcs among their tribe. Whilst the whole tribe was amidst waves of revolution, Kars mother vanished into seclusion with her unborn half-human son.
Growing up, Karthucc became their link to "normal" society, trading for goods they could not create on their own and learning that not humans, dwarves or elves wronged them - but orcs.
He came to have a distinct dislike to the monstrous part of himself, while still trying to be the best he could be and prove the prejudice about him and every half-human race wrong. Although the rage and orcish bloodlust are still as much embued within him as the belief that Gruumsh watches his every step, he tries to fight exactly that, ridding the world of one evil at a time...

Duh, I'm so bad at summaries.
Well, as to your characters @Andy089: I really like them both! I don't know much about the mechanical site of character creation, but I think roleplaywise there's a lot to play with in both and I would really like to see Thyron get to work his way up to confronting a deity...
@S_journ I think that would be an interesting path to take. But still, from my side, there's not much help to get mechanic-wise, although it does make sense (at least for me...) for a lore seeker to search (and probably find...) more than the average guy, concerning knowledge or a special kind of information that could be helpful or even just entertaining in some way.
So... that's my two cents here - better late than never I guess
