Half Elves
Half Elves are typically the product of a Human and an Elf (but not always). Half Elves typically favor one parentage over the other, but generally benefit from the enhanced senses of Elvenkind, while enjoy greater physical strength and durability from their human (or other) parentage. Their life spans are typically doubled or tripled compared to those of normal humans, but are still brief by the estimation of most elves.
Half Elves in some cultures suffer some discrimination, but are treasured in other cultures. Further, some Half Elves are raised by one parent or the other, and some others have experience in both environments. Due to their high degree of variation from one another, each Half Elf should be personalized as befits their background.

Fighter (Swashbuckler)
Masters of derring do, a true Swashbuckler knows that its not what you do -- its how you do it that counts. Most typically a melange of Fighter-Rogues, Swashbucklers favor wit, panache, personal style, and savoir faire in all their dealings, and try to never take anything to seriously, except for their reputations and challenges to their person.
Swashbucklers are competitive to a fault and tend to like making other less individualistic warriors out to be clods. Swashbucklers are one of the most fun archetypes to play, as they have a certain zest for life and devil-may-care attitude that can be very enjoyable to portray.

Light Foot
As the name would indicate Light Foot typically fight on foot. They generally wear lighter armor and wield lighter weapons.
Light Foot concentrate on speed, manueverability, skill, and technique over brute force and strength. Reflexes and adroitness are their bread and butter, and they often make use of easily carried thrown weapons which they can hurl at an opponent.
Adept skirmishers, Light Foot are much more dangerous than their lightly armored fast moving nature would suggest, and what they lack in striking power they make up for with accuracy and finesse.
