The barbarian that appeared in Unearthed Arcana had a fairly robust array of abilities, including such outdoor survival skills as hiding in natural surroundings, snare building, and outdoor tracking—but it may have been their aversion to magic and magic-users that stood out most amongst their identifying traits.
