The Usual Suspects
Jett is a melee Leader. His objective is to work with a front-line defender, doubling that guy’s damage output and number of foes marked. He also does some healing, some tactics, and occasionally even akes a swing at a bad guy himself (when he can’t avoid it). He tanks well – great AC & defenses, and OK hit points. He can do a little bit of a number of things – enough to provide tactical options. His main capability, however, is in geeting the party into position and giving the highest damage dealer a lot of extra attack actions (1/round, nearly every round).
Jett’s always been little and a nerd, getting pushed around by everyone in his neighborhood. That’s why he decided at age 5 that he was going to battle school. He wsa going to become a general, and then he’d have lots of friends and no one could push him around any more. So he started reading. And reading. And talking with old people who had any sort of military background or liked strategic games.
Eventually, he joined the guard (where he got pushed around), and took every training program they had (where he got pushed into the dirt a lot). And he always did very well at strategy and tactics. Eventually he got noticed by someone, and got some formal training. But even after entering elite units, he still got pushed around! And those doing the pushing were now even bigger and stronger.
Eventually, Jett fled his homeland. He’s still looking for someone who’ll back him in a fight, rather than knocking him on his back. He heard about these heros of Brindol when he was in town lately, but just missed them. Having heard the call to defend Overlook, he’s decided to see whether he can catch up with them there.
Always dresses in armor, no matter what. Similarly, refuses to be disarmed. Far away look in his eyes except during combat – he’s thinking about the tactics of the great generals all the time.
Says “um hm. Yeah.” and the like in response to most everything. He’s not paying attention to any social situation until forced to – and then he wants out as fast as possible, so he can get back to his tactical analysis.
Nerd. Tactical master, who thinks that’s all that matters in life – and certainly in combat. Somewhat domineering during combat – wants to tell everyone what to do. Outside combat, spends all of his time regaling people with great strategies from the past (his or those he’s read about). This is, he really is a tactical genius. Those wo follow his commands find themselve in better positions and able to take a lot of free shots at the enemy without reprisals.
