Nizar Head

Alayen, Firentis, Jeremus as emissary, retreating

Nizar is a hero of Calradia and the only one who comes with his own mount, making him well worth the 300 denars he costs to recruit.

When you meet him, he claims to be a famous warrior in his homeland, as well as a great poet. This can be confirmed when you see his starting skills as a warrior, and when Matheld admires his way of putting insults into poetry.

Firentis and Alayen both dislike his constant taunting of enemies and his womanizing, which leads to friction as Nizar likewise considers them to be too uptight. He is also attracted to Matheld for her Nord battle songs, though this seems to be a one-way crush on his part as he feels he has to 'melt the Nordic ice around her heart' first.

He is probably best used as a heavy mounted unit, as his courser will probably be the fastest horse on the field for the early stages of the game. With starting points in Ironflesh and Power Strike, it may be useful to use Nizar equipped with a sword and lance, as well as thrown weapons to give him a ranged option.

Nizar likes winning against heavy odds and dislikes fleeing battles, so he's a good option for most combat situations.

If elevated to lordship, Lord Nizar will recruit whatever troops are available from his fiefs, regardless of nationality. However, most lords will dislike this due to him being considered a commoner.


Nizar Full

"You have not? Then perhaps you will have heard of my steed, who cuts across the Calradian plains like a beam of moonlight? Or of my sword, a connoisseur of the blood of the highest-born princes of the land?"

"I am a warrior by profession. But perhaps you may also have heard of my prowess as a poet, who can move the iciest of maidens to swoon. Or of my prowess in the art of the bedchamber, in which I must confess a modest degree of skill. I confess a modest affection for Calradia, and for the past several years have visited its towns, castles, and villages, making the most of my talents."

"Which reminds me -- somewhere out there in the city is a rather irate husband. I don't suppose you might consider helping me leave town?"
