Before Combat If he expects combat, he casts jump on himself so that he can easily leap from his barge to shore or vice-versa. If he thinks he’s coming into dangerous territory,
he uses his fast stealth rogue ability to sneak up on enemies so that he can fire arrows from concealment.
During Combat He prefers to fight from his barge, forcing opponents to swim to him. He relies on his speed and mobility to stay out of reach of his enemies. If forced into melee combat, he uses his dog to flank so he can make sneak attacks.
Morale He knows when it is time to run and is not above stranding foes on his barge with his anchor feather token, leaping away under the effects of his jump spell, and using his swan boat feather token to create another craft to escape in. But when defending innocents or fighting evil, he gives no quarter and never quits.
