This is the Blade Dancer. It's what the kingdom have come to call these savages due to their ferocity in combat as well as their near-superhuman feats of dexterity - they dodge arrows with ease, they weave through enemy blades and possess a cunning brutality in using whatever object that is lying around rather than just relying on their blades.

In fact, they are infamous for stealing weapons, gear and supplies from the soldiers they slay.

But despite all the armor they stole, they prefer to wear only the bare minimum of armor to remain light on their feet and to rely more on their martial strength than the equipment they use. They will in fact pummel a knight's helmet in with their bare fists if there are no other weapons they can use.

While they remain vulnerable to magic spells and wards, they are adapting to it by coming up with new tactics to fight back.

... Worldbuilding is fun and I'm definitely using these guys in a later story.

Is that a mask or their face?

Oh, and congratulations on reaching your 30!
