Over the last tahun I've been slowly creating D&D characters based off of the DPs, and I spent so much time on them that I really wanted to share them here. I'll be posting a series of articles, one for each DP, in which I explain why I chose the classes, subclasses, etc. for each princess, and share the backstory I wrote for each. I'll also be crossposting these artikel to the disney Princess club. All the characters will be level 3 to ensure that they all have a chosen subclass. Sourcebooks used to build these characters include the Player's Handbook, Volo's Guide to Monsters, Xanathar's Guide to Everything, and Tasha's Cauldron of Everything. Anything written in italics is an author's note explaining my reasoning behind certain character choices.
Human Fighter - Battle Master / Background - Soldier
Mulan was an easy one for me. From her martial prowess it was clear that she should be a fighter, and diberikan the wide range of styles she was trained in during her time in the army I thought Battle Master would be the most fitting subclass. Since she spent time in the military I gave her the soldier background.
STR +3 (16) DEX +2 (14) CON +2 (15) INT +1 (13) WIS 0 (11) CHA -1 (9)
I used the standard array to generate stats. I tried to assign them in a way that would allow for a strong D&D character while still remaining mostly true to the attributes of the character in the film.
AC 18 (chain mail + shield)
Speed 30 ft.
Saving throws: Str +5, Con +4
Skills: Acrobatics +4, Athletics +5, Intimidation +1, Perception +2 (For her class skills I gave her Acrobatics and Athletics. She's clearly excellent at both since she was able to climb the pole and retrieve the arrow, not to mention her martial arts skills. Intimidation was granted oleh her background, and then I got to choose one more. I went with Perception, since she's very good at perceiving how to use her environment to her advantage, like when she made the avalanche.)

Tools: Calligrapher's Supplies, Dice Set, Vehicles (Land)

Backstories have been created with a combination of the stories from the films and rolling randomly on the acak tables in the "This Is Your Life" section of Xanathar's Guide to Everything, which is why some of these backstories have some wild things that really come out of left field lol.
I was born to Fa Li and Zhou in their small home. I was their only child, and we lived a modest life together with my grandmother. I had a few close friends and lived an ordinary childhood, but was often seen as rebellious and far too independent for a woman in our culture.
One day, invaders attacked my homeland. My father was commanded to laporan to the army, but he had already served in his younger years and still bore a painful injury that forced him to walk with a cane. I knew he would not survive if he went to the front lines.
I cut my hair, disguised myself as a boy, and mencuri my father's sword and armor, portraying myself as a son he rarely spoke about. The army accepted me initially, and I became a fearsome warrior in my training.
Eventually, however, my ruse was discovered. The penalty for a disguising myself as a man was death, but I had saved my commander, Li Shang's, life and he spared mine to repay his debt, however I was expelled from the ranks of my fellow soldiers.
They believed we had vanquished our enemies in our final battle together, but I knew that was not true. I followed them to the Emperor's palace and tried to convince them that he was still in danger. They would not listen to me until the invaders appeared. Improvising and using some quick thinking, I was able to kill their leader.
The Emperor himself thanked me and restored my honor, and oleh extension the honor of my family. I was sad to say goodbye to my commander, as I secretly harbored some feelings for him. I knew, however, that I needed to return halaman awal and mend things with my family, so I left despite their pleas for me to stay and gabung the Emperor's council.
I stayed with my family for a while, but found it extremely difficult to adapt back to civilian life. I chose to allocate the stipend the Emperor had diberikan me to my family, and set out on my own in cari of adventure.
I've taken for my heraldic sign is a golden dragon on a green field, representing valor and the Great Stone Dragon I believe guided me through my life. I've also taken a bright green feather from the rooster at our halaman awal to remind me of my origins.
My signature fighting style is cunning. I dart in to attack at just the right moment and use small-scale tactics to tilt the odds in my favor. I hope that this will allow me to survive in the wider world.
Basically kept the story exactly the same lol
