I'd guess Ben Franklin, but he was definitely TL 5, and I doubt he'd have ST 11 or DX 11. This guy is clearly physically able, a pacifist, and very classy.

You are right. I should have thought of the topical answer: Alfred Nobel?

Particular Nobel traits are Pacifism, Chemistry and Engineer and Expert Skill ([FNORD=Explosives]), and Cultural Familiarity. Courtesy Politics Rank and Language are as well.

Also, I should have shown the Phobia at the beginning as the Phobia of being buried alive.

It's been almost 2 weeks and Purple Haze hasn't posted anything, so I'll revive the thread.

I bet you can guess him with just two traits:
Human Male TL 4
Status 7
Very Fat
