Fighter is a proud student of the great Knight; Vargus. In Fighter's Camp '86, he mastered the 12 ZodiaKenshido sword styles. Unfortunately, he failed the class and met Black Mage therefore making Black Mage's life living heck. He is now used as BM's meatshield, loyal companion, and idiot. Fighter does whatever he can to make Black Mage happy, but he always ends up making him angry.
To this day, Fighter continues struggle to perfect Sword-Chucks, two swords attached by a chain.
Fighter is a lovable moron with a heart of gold and the brain of a Sword-Chuck. His deity is Dr. Swordopolis; the very incarnation of sword.
Fighter used two-fisted monkey style attack on a horde of hideous monsters after attempting (and failing) to remember what Vargus had taught him about what to do in an identical situation.
The Red Mage follows a written set of rules derived from various RPGs and handbooks. He is versatile seeing as he knows both Black and White (Arcane and Divine) magic, but does not specialize in any. He is a fairly skilled swordsman. He is a master at the ancient and holy art of Min/Maxing. The art of removing points from one skill and adding them to another in order to become more versatile and powerfull. Unfortunately, his Charisma is simply abysmal.
Red Mage did not want to cast a spell because it would make him less versatile.
