What do you look like when you fight?
SImple enough question. We all have access to the same abilities, but it's boring picturing everyone doing the same cookie-cutter routine.

Think the measured, controlled cuts of a European arming sword and the rapid, staccato rhythm of a fencer, coupled with a generous helping of the sweeping, circular motions and footwork of Chinese swordsmanship. His movements emphasize feints and misdirection, a flashy, almost mocking style that sometimes seems more concerned with causing pain than damage. It is very disorienting and effective against opponents of lower skill, but experienced fighters learn his patterns quickly and find them lacking.
As a Blademaster, he has yet to swing anything other than a training blade. As one of the greatest mortal weaponsmiths in living memory, he refuses to use a weapon he didn't personally craft.
