Sergeant Raymond Halston

Sergeant at Fort Pitchfork

Description:

This grizzled old veteran dominates the battlefield with his towering stature and broad chest and shoulders. His face is defined by a massive scar running down and closing one eye entirely, and he wears his graying hair cropped close except for a luxurious beard.

Tactics


Before Combat Sergeant Halston seeks out a defensible position and gathers as many allies around him in that place as he can. He allows the enemy to come to him, forcing them to commit to a plan of action before responding.
During Combat The Sergeant maneuvers to engage his enemies to his best advantage, moving to a flanking position or higher ground whenever possible. He makes extensive use of his teamwork feats, coordinating attacks and defenses with his allies at every opportunity.
Morale Halston is an experienced campaigner and will break before he bows down. If an important objective or his soldiers’ lives are on the line he will fight to the death, but he has enough experience to know when to withdraw if the aim cannot be achieved.
