I seem to have gone in the exact opposite way from everyone else on this thread and went old school for my idea.
Dr. Roderick A'Mac'Dowall
Race: Vanara - Monkey-like race from ARG
Class: Gunslinger (Musket Master), with a custom mental-enhancing archetype added to the class since we play w/o any major magic items
He's a scientist first and an adventurer second, who wishes to study (and venerate) mechanical life, believing science is the key to the universe, and can supplement or even surpass magic altogether. I even chose the Tree-Stranger alt racial trait just to make him seem more civilized.
It took a few days before anyone even realized the inspiration for the character, and I'm still disappointed my brothers didn't know Dr. Cornelius from Planet of the Apes.
