Soldier Fredius Wagonsmith or Militiaman


Every troop has a shifty eyed grumbler. This is ours. He is also The Captain’s Second.

Human, Male, 50 something
Of average height and build, his defining features are his huge lantern chin (which is always half shaven) and beady squinty eyes. He is known for “the look”, that look of a man who has seen too much death.

Like many young men trying to escape a guildsman life, he took to petty crime. While tough enough, he was not fast enough to escape the militia. Given a choice of joining the Militia or spending most of his life in the Gaol, he joined the militia. He was a born soldier, with a talent for combat and watch work (he finds it ironic that now he is catching the stupid kids who were doing what he was doing before joining up). He has seen some of the worst things possible in Antioch and has survived many of them by being under The Captain. Though his morals and conduct are sometimes suspect, he is the Captains Go-To guy for any dirty job.

Special Equipment
Standard Issue, plus a deck of cards and some dice.

Roleplaying Notes
“Been there, seen that.” and “Can’t believe this is happening to me.”

Grumbling about something, anything really.

He is cranky, cynical, and bitter. He often rolls his eyes at the Captain’s moral high horse, yet he respects the man for his skills and grudgingly his honor.

He, like many men married to the Militia have given up his guild based last name and taken his new guild “Militiaman”.

Another character from the Rest of the Cast thread.

I think that the 'Look' is now called the 1000 yard stare, one frequently exhibited by soldiers who have seen intense combat.

Yes I agree with Scras, I think it is talked about in Full Metal Jacket.
Sweet idea. What are his motivations for "going on" when everything is death for him?
Maybe he is secretly admiring his captain but not willing to give in to this Honor thing?

The city of Nausopol is built on stilts. Lots of very sturdy stilts and butresses, of course, because it rises about five hundred feet from the ocean. Even the most terrific of storms is only heard in the city as a distant cacophony of blasts as waves strike the solid stonework fathoms below. It has never been attacked because of its isolation and impregnability.

It's not a place for the faint-hearted: vertigo and sea-sickness are not desirable traits. But when you are standing in the middle of the city there is no way you could tell that you were standing above an ocean, separated only by a gulf of air and a few stones.

A thousand steps lead down from Nausopol to the floating docks. These docks are pitch-coated wooden and can be raised by winches during squalls. Trade with other cities and countries is good: Nausopol is built over a sunken atoll whose minerals are still mined by divers, and it was from this that it originally derived its wealth.

But the principal method of getting to and from the city is by riding the giant sea-eagles which have been captured and bred for that very reason.
