Backgrounds: Selfless Defender

A Selfless Defender feels that that combat is never the solution to any problem, and that a fighter loses a piece of his own essence each time he harms another being. This makes the Selfless Defender's sacrifice all the more noble; when battle is inevitable the Defender will stand in the front lines protecting her allies and killing her enemies so that others do not have to bear the terrible price. A Selfless Defender is a skilled combatant but never the aggressor. Above all he is more concerned with protecting an ally than felling a foe.
