Tall, dark-haired, and roguishly handsome, by his goatee and massive greatsword you recognize this man as the local folk hero Rantle, a scoundrel and defender of the common man.

Before Combat: In the city, Rantle uses his popularity to his advantage, insulting his foes and encouraging bystanders to throw things at them. However, he never gets noncombatants involved if he thinks they might get hurt.
During Combat: He likes to cut through multiple foes at once with his greatsword, which is his signature weapon. If he uses his leadership performances, it’s usually to help his allies get out of danger. He knows when to run (preferably after making a dramatic blow or delivering a blunt, smirking insult to the enemy leader — “You guys are really incompetent.”), and will usually use the local townsfolk to provide a wall of bodies to let him get out of sight.
