Elite Guard Sergeant War-7 This is a typical elite human city guard leader or similar warrior, the type who might be found leading a squad of elite guardsmen. He's tough enough that backed up by a squad of elite guards he can handle most low-medium level opponents. Readied halberd will deter most foes from charging, and against lone 'heroes' the halberd can be used to Trip the opponent then hit him while he's down...
