Greetings and salutations. I am a newbie currently wending his way through the approval process, and have been hankering to take 5th Edition out for a test spin and kick the tires.
If you still have space in this game, I would like to play a fighter (archer, mainly, with ranger a possibility). He was burned out of his village in his early teens by an orc/goblin raid. He thus had to grow up quickly, becoming inured to an itinerant life, working as everything from a blacksmith's apprentice to caravan guard and general sell-sword. However, his primary martial skill is the longbow, as he learned at an early age that bringing down adversaries at a distance is far safer than having to confront them in melee combat!
His alignment would best be described as Neutral with Lawful tendencies. On the road, he has developed a personal code of honor, learning that a man's word and reputation are among the most valuable assets. He thus strives to uphold his--though because he does this in self-interest rather than as part of a larger cosmic ethos, he gets no "Good" credit for it alignment-wise. He will fight Evil race like those that vanquished his home, but he is a mercenary who has no special love or kindness for the rest of humanity (some of whom treated him rather poorly when he was on the road).
If including this character in your campaign interests you, please let me know.
