Using random hit location die to create NPCs

I often want to define a non player character within seconds.

While there are many tables for random names and motivations, I also wanted to know their 1 or 2 outstanding traits.

For that I am going to use my six sided hit location dice in the future: on it's different sides you find body parts. I just roll and connect each symbol with a stat and/or skill category.

Head - 1 - Smarts
Body - 2 - Vigor
Left Arm - 3 - Charisma
Right Arm - 4 - Strength
Left Leg - 5 - Speed or Double Outstanding
Right Leg - 6 - Agility
