You are Sir Edward Sackville (1591-1652), the English courtier, soldier and politician. You’re complicated and clever and prefer feats of extraordinary skill to those of brute force.
You spend more time fighting than you do learning, but it has paid off. One should be constantly on guard should they need to take you on. You fight with finesse and take duelling to the level of artistry. Even when it seems like you’re at your wits end, you’ll somehow pull something out of the bag and come out on top.
