Default Pregen Characters for Caravan to Ein Arris

I am wishing to build up a large selection of pregenerated characters for Caravan to Ein Arris. Its the classic starter adventure and I'm thinking of running a one nighter demo at my FLGS, and I think a collection of characters for it would be good. If anyone of you have run Ein Arris and have characters you wouldn't mind sharing, I would greatly appreciate you putting them in this thread. Point totals don't matter as long as you as a player or GM would play them in Ein Arris (The reccomended total is 125, I've heard people suggest 150 as well). I will also be putting up characters of my own : those at least you should feel free to critique.

Alternatively, if you can point me to a solid resource, that would be nice as well.
Be helpful, not pedantic

1. Any special types you are looking for?
2. Are you using all the books or just the Basi Sets? Do you use Magic or just spells from BS?
3. 125 points Disads and quirks?
In the Griffin World I play Agriana Trotter, here is the GURPS crunch.

Thirty years ago, Keffer Latroy was a simple young laborer. His physical strength was noticed (he was in better shape at the time), so he was drafted into the army and sent off to fight in border disputes along the border with Mashanda. He returned with a few scars and a lot of stories, and he opened a bar—mostly so that he would always have an audience—got married and had two children. In the years since, his wife has left him for a nobleman, taking the kids with her, and his bar has continually lost money (probably because Keffer gives free drinks to anyone he knows personally). In the end, he was forced to sell the bar. He has decided to find work as a caravan cook, hoping this will be an opportunity to make some money and meet interesting people!

EDIT: When I made this character we were just making the switch to 4e and didn't realize yet that lowered attributes count toward the disadvantage total. If I were to make the character today I would drop Rapier Wit (which is completely game-breaking) and maybe drop a point of ST or something to pay off the lowered attributes.
