Dirty Fighter

The dirty fighter laughs at concepts like honor and fair play. He cares only for victory, no matter how he achieves it, and spends as much time mastering sneaky combat maneuvers as he does drilling with weapons or learning how to wear armor.

The dirty fighter is an archetype of the fighter class, available only to seeq fighters.
