Feature: <-military rank->[edit]

In this D&d 5e soldier background we have a military rank and it has been since we’re a soldier. These soldiers loyal to your former military organization still recognize your influence and authority and also they will defer to you if they are of a lower rank. To exert influence over other soldiers and horses for temporary use or requisition simple equipment you can invoke your rank. To the fortresses where your rank is recognized and to friendly military encampments you can usually gain access for them also.

Alternate Feature: <-overly combat ready->[edit]

you rarely sleep deeply, always alert. you have difficulty trusting people, because in war you cant. you always have your weapon at the ready, willing to use it on any person, monster, or random object that usually doesn't threaten you.
