Black Dime the Dwarven Veteran

This weekend I sat down with my son and daughter and rolled up some new 1st level B/X characters and played a short adventure. Below is my 6-year old son's character which he named on his own. I'm not too sure if he is aware of the tropes or if his picking a battle axe for his character was serendipitous. We rolled 3d6 in order - don't want to coddle them. ;)
