Merkal Ulm, seventh son of poor human farmer, trained since childhood in the ways of a fighting gentleman under the patronage and guidance of Gustroneavia Swartzselle. Having reached the correct age for such endeavors, Merkal is sent forth into the wild world to gain real dungeoneering and adventuring experience. "Do not come back to my house without tasting heaven, touching hell, and boiling my blood with a tale to tell. Not wanting to disappoint his honorable sponsor, Merkal accepts the task and ventures forth from the estate along the back road, hungry for adventure.
Exiled from his nomadic tribe for some offense he never speaks of, the ronin warrior Nyeri Amil Kabral walks the world arrogant and aloof. Finding employment as an erstwhile soldier-of-fortune and adventurer among the barbaric "savages" in their great cities, Amil is dangerous with both his traditional spear and his sharp tongue.
Any particular classes or just a classless character type?
Merkal be a fighter.
Nyeri is a ronin. I think that's a character type. Otherwise a fighter, though more along the lines of a ranger than a barbarian.
