I've just uploaded a Mega Character Collection to DrivethruRPG.com and Gumroad.com. It's got 44 characters (49 including the Bug Squad!), and each one is completely ready to play, including all stats, equipment and back stories.

Read through it just now. For random generated PCs, they aren't bad. I personally clean up/tweak randoms to be viable (honestly, a lot of those guys are ruin monster-chow on the first few encounters). I don't mess with the stats, but sometimes a re-roll or two for mutations (especially if the mutation/s is/are crippling, like a mild mutant ending up with 2 crab claws (no human arms), 8 bladed arms but no fighting skills & a STR of 24 & is an escaped slave with zip for skills, hell how does the poor guy even take a leak without um, cutting himself short as it were, & yes I did randomly roll up the mild mutant in question).
Also I noticed some inconsistencies, one has a mutant slave owned by a PSH in Newburg?!? Not possible, PSH are always second-class citizens in DoA & no mutant would allow another mutant to be owned by one (the mutant in question might own another mutant but that's beside the point).
Quote from pg 111, Crossroads Region Gazetteer: " Aberratia doesn’t eradicate its pure stock populace, at least not as a matter of policy. These unmutated people are second class citizens who are not permitted to vote, carry weapons, wear armor, nor speak unbidden to a mutant outside their private homes or place of work."
Also several Bioreplicas lived in HPE?! They burn "demon-spawn" like that. Cyborgs too. Also HPE does not have the technology required to create clones or bioreplicas (that's the Evil Ones craft!). The HPE's anti-high technology/anti-anyone not PSH/Quasi-religious doctrine pretty much guarantees any clone, cyborg, bioreplica, or mutant that falls into their sick hands will be tortured & executed (most likely burned alive at the stake in Witch Burn). The Pure Hold Republic creates bioreplicas & clones, since they retain the technology & know-how to use it (as well as the willingness to do so).
Just my take of course. I'll almost guarantee that I'll be shouted down about this but I base all my statements on TME rules/setting info that is currently available.
I don't have to outrun THEM, I only have to outrun YOU!
i have a cousin that's bad at fleshing out characters so giving him something already put together to pick from will help him a lot until he comes into his own, this is a huge help and im glad we have people in the community like you

Thorn, I'd never shout you down. I love critiques like this! I didn't realize there were inconsistencies. I used the table in the Crossroads Gazette to determine where they came from, and when I wrote the histories, I just made it up as I went. I would GREATLY appreciate if you would write me and give me specifics on which character/s that need fixing for this!
