Post opinions about his stats :

While, in the light of his biography, I would say that dex, con and cha are ok, I would say that wisdom definetely needs to be raised. Generally, I would avoid stats below 8 altogether, because under 8 means something bad happened to the character (the stat is below average, which is 8-13). Also, I would increase his strength with 1-2 points, because I understand he is a very good swordsman, and a 12 Str would make him a little bit too weak.
Other comments ?

And, btw, I see no problems with his intelligence. Rogues can be smart and cunning.

About charisma, it's a fine with me, but Seb should post what charisma represents in Khadion's case. Charisma can be used for many things : leadership abilities, but also looks. There are clues which point in one direction, but also to the other. While Khadion has a lot of success with girls (the dream of every maiden, so he says, hehe), it's not very clear how good he is as a leader.

Khadion is young and na´ve, and tends not to think ahead. Yes, he's less wise than average. That's intentional, and it may be possible to raise his wisdom as Khadion's character matures :).

Khadion isn't a good leader. At least, he might be able to persuade people to follow him into near certain death, but there's not much point to that, as he'd get them all killed ;). He is handsome, however, and a good charmer of women.

What weapon proficiencies will Khadion have?
It's not fully decided, but scimitar, two weapon fighing and daggers seem likely.

I picture him, for some reason, using 2 daggers and throwing darts (or daggers), maybe its his low strength and high dexterity.

How about 2 daggers that he throws and they automatically return to him.

As far as I know, it was already decided to have him wield two scimitars. Unless Seb has changed something.

Yeah, he's still wielding dual scimitars.

However, unless I'm very much mistaken, I gave him a star in Daggers as well at some point.

I'm not really that bothered by "there are better weapons of this sort in the game", since weapon choice for me isn't about choosing something which would benefit the player the most, but rather about characterisation.

I mean, would Khadion think "I'm gonna choose katanas as my favourite weapon, because when I travel with CHARNAME ten years from now, there's got to be lots of those lying around in Amn"?

I chose scimitars because they are a light, easy and curved blade, which fits Khadions 'fast-but-not-so-strong'-fighting style.

you could always go with cutlasses just categorize them under scimitars, being kind of halfway and in keeping with being a swashbuckler.
