What do you get when a prestigious commander's reputation for savagery precedes him so much that his own men toss him out and force him to become a mercenary to survive? Goffard Gaffgarion. Never one to put his life in danger if it doesn't benefit him, Gaffgarion is the consummate sellsword, the personification of "anything for a price". He is extremely selfish and cares only for money and himself...and not necessarily in that order. And he is not particularly shy about showing it. Wielding the dark powers of the life- and mana-draining Fell Sword, he cuts through enemies with practiced ease. Despite his reputation for brutality, he's not a particularly cruel or vicious opponent in battle. It just so happens to be easier to simply kill all who stand in his way than to sort through the rabble. But loyalty bought with coin is just as easily broken, and those who hire him would do well to remember that. The only thing reliable about him is that he can just as easily turn on an employer for a better price.
Equipment: While Gaffgarion can use a number of different swords, he must have a longsword to use the powers of the Fell Knight. More powerful greatswords will not do.
Reputation: To anyone hiring Gaffgarion, beware. His loyalty's bought, and it's very possible that, for the right price, it can be broken. And there's little he won't do if he's paid enough to do it. This is, obviously, not going to win him much trust from others. And there's very little Gaffgarion will put his life on the line for. He always puts himself before others and tends to care very little about what others think about it. And he tends to...well, not stick around when he gets injured past a certain point, or when the situation gets more dangerous than he feels his pay allows for. This may lead him to be branded a coward. His reputation is fated to follow him wherever he goes, for a variety of reasons. Though most likely because it's usually only a matter of time (and money) before he switches allegiance. He's a "sellsword" after all, and is very serious about that title. He does, at least, have the professionalism to finish the job according to his employer's specifications. But he's just as liable to take on the job of killing his former employer if someone else hires him after that. And he'll do it, too.
Gettin' Up In Years: Gaffgarion's not someone that's to be taken lightly, make no mistake. However, he IS almost sixty. While it might take a lot to put him down, when he finally does get put down, he tends to STAY down. It also means that he's more likely to tire before the end of a protracted battle, which may lead to him abandoning a mission before accomplishing it.Technology: Gaffgarion comes from a world that some might consider "backwards" where technology is concerned. And his lack of patience doesn't help him when trying to figure out new pieces of technology, either. With both these, he's very likely to just chuck a piece of machinery over his shoulder and discard it than sit there and attempt to figure it out.

Thranduil: Quite an enjoyable battle, Elf-King. With this you are likely to have quite the ill temper towards me, aye? Good. I would like to see what you can do the next time we cross swords.
Ineryon: You do manage to get yourself into quite the predicament, good Ser. Worry not, you will have your information. Only do be careful-- horns were meant to pierce what they hit. But whether or not the surface will release it afterwards is an important question that is often left to an afterthought.Dropped
