Duelist Gladiator
Original Occupations

Duelist

Duelists are warriors who are trained to fight honorably, in single combat with an opponent.  They are rarely exposed to the dirty art of war, and often hold high ideals and personal codes of honor.  Protecting the weak and the powerless from those who would abuse them, and championing the helpless is often the way of life for a heroic duelist.  Their thrill for danger and desire for newer and stronger challenges often lead them to a life of adventuring.  They know all of the codes of dueling, have been trained extensively in the art of sword-play, and often are quite suave and urbane.

Gladiator

Gladiators in the E'gath Empire are free men who choose to fight in the eastern arenas.  Highly trained warriors and athletes, their bouts are as much a show as survival.  Most often disdaining ranged weapons and attacks, gladiators prefer combat close enough to smell their opponent's breath.
