Warriors can be found in the most peculiar places. Among the smallest of races where courage seems to be found in endless quantity, and in the gentlest of species where their caring nature can turn to fury and vengeance in a blink of an eye.

While many people call themselves fighters, a true warrior is someone who’s proven themselves in battle, showing their resolve is untouchable by the dangers of combat. Molded by overcoming fear in such situations, they continuously justify their calling.

Warrior’s very nature makes them prone to undertaking difficult assignments, anything that can allow them to test their prowess. This makes their names known, names such as Willfoe Goldsworn, Meredick the Undying, and Mary Hellhide.
