Before Combat He does everything in his power to avoid combat through diplomacy and compromise.
During Combat He relies on Combat Expertise and attempts to inflict only nonlethal damage. The entire time, he constantly tries to defuse the conflict by looking for compromises or means to get his enemies to back down.
Morale He is willing to die to protect his friends and family, but he won’t die cheaply. He’s quick to flee a pointless death and is insightful enough to warn friends and neighbors so they can’t be used as leverage against him.
