Human Fighter (CR 1-20)

Human Fighter

Given that the hallmarks of the human PC race presented in the Player's Handbook v3.5 are its extra feat and extra skill point per level, I opted with the following NPC to focus on a build which is feat-intensive even for a fighter. The NPC begins pretty simply, as a tactical battlefield-control unit. You can toss it at your PCs as-is and expect it to inflict credible damage as well as considerable disruption of their ability to move freely across the map. 

Dwarf Fighter (CR 1-20)

Dwarf Fighter

The NPC below gains a slight edge on the human fighter early on, both in damage-dealing capacity and in its ability to absorb damage; the dwarf enjoys higher Con than the human, and its racial familiarity with the dwarven waraxe lends it a slightly more powerful one-handed weapon than the norm without the associated opportunity cost of spending a feat for Exotic Weapon Proficiency. This makes the dwarf a fine choice for builds depending on the waraxe as a one-handed weapon and a shield. 

Half-Elf Fighter (CR 1-20)

Half-Elf Fighters

The half-elf below is designed to emphasize the half-elf's adaptability. As much as humans, the half-elf is supposed to be able to thrive in any situation. To this end, the half-elf fighter thrives by being able to do an adequate job at almost anything.
