The Iconic Swashbuckler of Realms of Strife ->…

In this case a dark skinned half-elf

Honor is not the sole domain of ironclad Knights and pious Paladins, nor do all who cling to its virtues find themselves among the law abiding. There is Honor among thieves, but even scoundrels hold themselves to a Code. Swashbucklers view Honor as personal matter, derived from ideals of heroism and poetic justice, not dictated by wealthy nobles or Lords for their own self-serving benefit. While most would see stealth as a dishonorable tactic, the Swashbuckler uses it to their advantage, outmaneuvering and confounding their foes as they seek to tip the balance back into the favor of the downtrodden and the underdog.

Many Swashbucklers come from backgrounds of ill-repute and as such are often viewed as outlaws and villains. However, this only a matter of perspective as a Swashbuckler believes that every person has their own path to redemption. While not afraid to bend or break the rules, Swashbucklers can also be exceptionally loyal to the Kings and Lords of the land they regard as just and true. Ultimately they are guided by their own strict sense of right and wrong.

A defining feature of most Swashbucklers is an uncanny confidence in their own abilities, said to be peerless experts when it comes to bragging or spinning a tale. They are also known far and wide for their puffed up bravado and extravagant styles. Swashbucklers are most comfortable with a quick blade in their hand and live for the thrill of a good duel. They also know the value of keeping a foe at a distance and often employ whips or other ranged weapons to frustrate their foes into making brash decisions.
