Gladiator - Progeny
Vandor Colton is a mercenary of minor reputation and born of low status. While not a knight, he was trained after their fashion, being adept at combat, trained in weapons and armor and having been raised with chivalry in mind.
However, over time, the sellsword has learned to sell his sword to generally anybody willing to pay. While he does not go out of his way to commit atrocity, and is not inclined to build a reputation of ill repute, Vandor may find his jobs to be beneath the morality of some others.
Whether in the service of a lord or being hired at a tavern, for the most part, it just depends on the contract and its payment. The nature of the job generally takes a backseat.
Skills and Abilities
Versatility: Flexible in the contract he takes and can work alone or with others
Courage: Will gladly take on the meanest enemy if it means getting paid for it
Loyalty: A sellsword who won't break a contract to shift sides for higher coin
As a mercenary, he is often traveling, sleeping in the wild, inns or the lodging of his employer. He has since developed an appreciation for keeping to himself and going alone in the world, though he has no qualms with working with a partner or in a group.
Though not cruel of heart, Vandor may be unpredictable in his behavior toward others. He may save the lady getting beaten but may not care about the cutpurse running past him. If highwaymen need to be taken out then he'll be glad to, but a crime lord may offer more to support those toll bridges. It just depends on the circumstances.
