Install console-terminus console-tools
Edit, as root, /etc/console-tools/config so that it looks roughly like

# Turn on numlock by default

Then reboot and see if you like it. It seems to do most of the

If you want to try others, they are located in the path:
dpkg -L console-terminus | grep Uni3-TerminusBold | less

possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.
