In fantasy, many characters find themselves in situations where quick thinking, along with the skills they may possess, might be the only way to survive, and such life is actually very common for many males, regardless of the race they really belong to.

From farmers and citizens to soldiers and adventurers, they have done it all and will continue for centuries to come, and whatever life has brought before them, they faced it with courage and determination, traits highly desirable during trying times.

The fickleness of some males is certainly one of the reasons why they decide to travel, visit new places and meet new people, and seek adventure where their names get known, names like Castien Lorabalar, and Botolfr Dawnbreaker.

Depending on what kind of society they live in, males are often responsible for hard physical labor, hunting, fighting in wars, and generally being there in times of trouble to defend the family and community they live in. Such roles, among many others, provide ample opportunities to find themselves in situations where one has to use all their knowledge just to survive the ordeal. Think of the race they belong to, where were they born, what skills did they acquire as they grew up, what might be their current role and their future plans, and think of a name worthy of the achievements that await them on their way to eternal glory.
