A first tier combative class adept in the use of weapons of all sorts, fighters are characterized by high strength and constitution scores, dexterity being of secondary importance. The fighter is a versatile base class serving as a gateway to a variety of second tier classes.
Fighters, or at least soldiers, tend to be relatively common place and exist among almost all races. A fighter can be an old, seasoned soldier, a captain of the guard, a sheriff, a brigand, a mercenary, a senior member of the militia, a talented young swordsman, a bandit, a frontier patrolman, or any number of other things. What he will certainly have is background with a weapon, whether melee or ranged, and probably other combative skills. They also commonly have survival skills when their background is in rough conditions.
