Fighter Archetype: The One Dragoon[edit]

Unrivaled is their skill with a spear. The dragoons is agile and quick to such a degree that witnesses say they are but a blur. It takes patience, strength, a strong will and many years of training to become a master of the spear. Dragoons learn through their training that protecting those close to you takes priority over everything else, even yourself. Dragoons frequently take the front line, striking fast and accurately, aiming for weak spots, slits and gaps in enemies' armor. They are aggressive, but can be defensive if the need arises, especially in the case of helping a friend.

Generally a the dragoons has started their training early enough to reach the level of master in their physical prime. Dragoons can be found as captains of a royal guard, or the personal guard of a merchant, or even a leather worker in a small town who wants to lead a simple life. Not all dragoons aim for wealth and glory, but rather a meaningful life, they tend to keep their skills unknown to strangers, if possible.
