Actually, that sounds like a great choice. The group is a Cleric short and your character would fill that slot nicely.
Your character hasn't spent enough on abilities. It appears you only spent 23 points and in this game you actually get two extra points, for a total of 29 rather than 27.
The reason I like 5e so much, personally, is that most party compositions work. Healing is useful, but seems less essential as before if you have a group of players who work together. Having said that I would never turn down a cleric or two and as far as a second wizard goes I say the more spells the merrier! ;)
With the number of players Abnninja is looking to entertain, any number of different players and classes will work just swell together if we all work together and think before we rush in.

I went back and double checked and it looks like you are all short on ability scores, even you Glarion. You are allowed 29 points in his campaign. Please go back and fix this.
Abn, I didn't check everyone, but both Kntoran's and Glarion's ability scores appear to be correct. Don't forget that you start with an 8 in everything, and purchasing a point higher than 13 costs double. (So a 14 in a stat costs a total of 7 points, and a 15 costs 9).
Yes you are correct! I don't know how that happened as I created a quick Excel spreadsheet to calculate the costs and it said 29 points? Oh well, never going to complain about increasing a stat by a point! Thanks for your vigilance in spotting my error *wink*.
EDIT: Just made another mistake in checking my original figures *laugh*! I had the 12's down as costing 3 each and not 4, hence why I too came out with 2 points short, but as Daishan pointed out I rechecked mine and I was indeed correct the first time round. Thanks for making check the figures anyway as one can never be too sure.

Yeah I know mine is correct I spent a whole two minutes on it. That is like a hour in normal people mathing *laugh*.
