Fighters are knights, soldiers, bandits, mercenaries, gladiators, hunters, and more. Their skill with weapons and their knowledge of warfare can vary but they all share their love for battle and glory. They often make the very backbone of any army.

Unless they were trained for years, while each fighter is adept at using different kinds of weapons, most specialize in order to stay as competitive as possible. Regardless of their weapon of choice, they are very deadly and effective.

Whether they seek the thrill of combat or simply want to test their skills further, many choose a life of an adventurer. Some of those fighters who are looking to have their names known are Yielle Melinaar, Ian Stonehollow, and Throthgar Gemsoul.
