The word 'coward' get's thrown around a lot when Don is mentioned. He prefers to call himself a realist. He's a paladin, and some say that he's not the most daring. "It comes from a hard life." He says. "One learns to step carefully when their life is always on the line. It's not cowardice. It's caution."~TrentVermin
mentioned to me long ago that one of his characters is built around a trope called "The Woobie". A poor soul whose life has been nothing but hardship and mistreatment. I kept wanting to make a character like that, and now that I've got a D&D group again, I couldn't resist making a snarky, hesitant paladin who is always prepared for the worst.
