Crazy's one of my favourite characters, both because he's extremely effective despite being an unusual combination and because he has a Sommerset Accent and thus I can use all the things that I asociate with that (most notably, my notorious Migrating Rocks sketch).
So, here's a brief and badly-written bit of background about him.

Crazy Stick was adopted by a *ahem* nomadic clan far up to the north (or south, depending on the world). His birth family were caravaneers, but they were killed in an avalanche when he was a baby. Crazy was lucky enough to be near the surface and relatively unharmed by the incident, and was quickly found up by the nomadic tribe who were *ahem* looking for survivors and definitely not responsible for the avalanche. Since he had survived the avalanche unscathed, the nomads believed he was blessed by the gods, and so took him in and raised him as one of their own.

As Crazy Stick grew amoung the nomads, he learnt how to survive in the harsh terrain the nomads favoured; hunting mammoths, defending the camps against wild beasts and Rock Giants (sparking his mistrust of all Rocks), and witnessing an extraordinary number of unfortunate avalanches that tragically wiped out rich trading caravans. He was shorter than most (of course), which earnt him the scorn of many newcomers to the clan, but his surprising strength, nimbleness and hardiness, not to mention his fearsome temper, gradually earnt him widespread respect among the clan.

It was not until his 18th year that Crazy Stick discovered the truth of his caretakers and how he had come to live with them. Furious that he had been deceived for so long and with the now apparent nature of his clansmen, he stormed off, forsaking the clan. He has been wandering ever since.

Seriously, Halfling barbarians are surprisingly effective. They hit for only a little less than larger barbarians and can easily hit AC 20 at level 1 without spending much.

(not so seriously) Remembering been told that they have 3 AoE attacks: A disgusting gas attack that makes you flee with phrases like: omg... that smell. A sonic attack with horrible impact on your morale and that puking like those banshees in WizOn.

I should take some of those as rage powers XD Amusingly, some of those actually exist.

Even though I probably won't get to play Crazy for a while yet, it just occured to me that since...

a. It'd be more amusing
b. We currently have a deficiency
c. It will unnerve party members

...I should
SPOILER:
change Crazy Stick into a girl.
SHOCK! >:)

Achievements of Crazy Stick:

(More to come, maybe)

Well, having hit the magic 10,000 AS limit set by me arbitrarily near the start of the forum's birth, Crazy Stick is now a Mythic Champion.
Obviously this is still subject to GM ruling of whether it will be permissible or not, but I'd like to hope that at some stage this could happen in a game should a suitable opportunity arise.

I'm also still kind of on the fence about how much AS should actually buy this, if it could be bought at all, but as the most active forum member, with getting close to 2,000 posts after 2 years, it's maybe not totally unrealistic.
