Demon Hunter

Demon Hunter - Traits

Time has taught me three lessons. 1) the smell of sulfur is a potent of good times to come 2) a trusty cold-forged item must always be at hand 3) nothing brings a warmer welcome, than a freshly sliced demon head brought to the town it was terrorizing. With these three tenants I have built my business, my fortune, my entire life.

d8Personality Trait
1I seek out danger for the thrill that runs through my veins when I stare death in the face.
2When I look in a child's terrorized face, it breaks something inside of me. There is no way I can let anything terrorize a city.
3The praise they give when I return to town with a trophy. The way the young ladies swoon at my tales of courage. True life is living it up in the eyes of others.
4My body is covered in scars of all shapes, sizes, and colors. Each one has an epic tale behind it. For instance, this strange crescent shaped on...
5Nothing raises a party's courage quite so much as singing as you face off something terrifying You just cannot be afraid while belting out a battle song.
6My job is dark and messy. Most of it should be left unsaid. All you need to know is the job is done.
7I've cradled countless numbers as my friends as they have drawn their last breath. It is an occupational hazard.
8I will live to see the infernal houses fall. Demons have no place in our world.

1Loyalty: Without trust for my team I am as good as dead (lawful).
2Justice: Some things just deserve to be cast back down to hell. It is where they belong and where they should stay (good).
3Adaptability: Fiends have many tricks and I must be ready to face anything, and I really do mean anything (chaotic).
4Brutality: If I were some goody two shoes then I would not be able to defeat these fiends. I have to be on their level and willing to strike just as hard as them to defeat them (evil).
5Acceptance: I know my place and my duty and will fulfill it. Someone has to (any).
6Cycle of Life: Each day brings its trials. Each day brings its rewards. Then the next day turns and the next demon is slain (neutral).

1It is all about the team I work with. There is no way I could have accomplished the things in the past without my fellow demon hunters, now I will serve this team just as loyally.
2When I was young, my parents did not believe me about the monster under the bed. It grew up and killed my family, now I will kill all of its family.
3One time we refused to slay a demon until we had been paid. The demon slaughtered an orphanage the night before their loan arrived. I will never let that happen again.
4My <span class="generate" data-recurrance="never" data-FID="ipN82HOcOq3GsHYx" data-UGFLinkReference="tAtA1522">Random - Family Member</span> was slain by a demon. All I have left to remember them by is <span class="generate" data-recurrance="never" data-FID="hpVYJd37peuHNUlO" data-UGFLinkReference="tAtA1492">Random - Trinket</span> .
5I have a map that supposed leads to the "bane of demon kind". I will find it and master it, if only I could figure out what this bizarre map even meant!
6One of the demons we slayed swallowed a key right before he died. It was difficult, but we dug the key out of its belly. I believe that this key will somehow aid in the war against demons.

1My hatred for the infernal burns so hot that I'm liable to attack first and size up the demons strength by how hard it hits back.
2I love my trophy collection and constantly show it off. Unfortunately most people don't like seeing cut up pieces of demons.
3I have a one track mind, so once I take an bounty, I will focus everything I have until I manage to kill it.
4I have slain so many demons that their blood has changed my own scent. Sometimes I wonder if I'm hunting them, or if the smell attracts them to me, even ones too powerful for me to be able to fight.
5I have been cheated out of payments way too often. Cash first please.
6Sometimes the best payments are from deals with demons to slay their rivals. The largest pile of coins speaks loudest after all.
0A little bit of liquid courage is never a bad thing, especially before facing off with truly terrifying enemies.
