In my current campaign my Players will be participating in a War that'll be like a cross between the American Revolution and Civil War. To add more depth to it, I'll be making NPCs based off of Historic Figures that'll serve as Allies and Enemies for the PCs.
So far I've figured I'll have Abraham Lincoln as a Human Brawler/Bard (Oratory focused), and Ulysses S. Grant as his Dwarven Cavalier companion. Now my campaign will slowly incorporate more and more of the more Steam punk elements of Pathfinder, and it got me thinking: what other historic figures could be adapted into Pathfinder NPCs? Tesla and Edison as rival Gnome Alchemist inventors?
What's the Hivemind's ideas on other Historic Figures that'd be fun to adapt into Pathfinder, and how wold ye go about it class/archetypes/race?
