Name: Izaka Sazaka
Class: Dark Knight
Class Description: A warrior who trades life energy for power. Focuses heavily on offense and attacking, usually boosting physical strength in return for lowering health or defenses.
Personality: Aloof, serious, brutal. As long as his goals are met he doesn’t care the methods. A cold soldier that is more than willing to trade the lives of innocents and people only tangentially related in return for success.
History: Growing up as an orphan, Izaka quickly learned to fend for himself, fighting for survival on the rough streets of the city. Unlike many of the urchins who died all around him, he managed to survive into young adulthood and took a job with the imperial army at around age 16. He served for 4 years, until age twenty, before seeking discharge. Taking his newly acquired skills, he immediately turned around and began to sell his sword to the highest bidder, seeking as much coin and treasure as he could. For 6 years he committed unspeakable atrocities, butchering cities, eliminating church officials, and torturing spies for intelligence. His years of service and experience have left him with a rather cynical world view, nothing brings him pleasure anymore beyond the thrill of senseless violence or torture, for these reasons, more than out of necessity, does he fight.
Extra: Has two children by a women he met during his time in the army. He is no longer in contact with any of them.

I thought that it would be interesting to have characters with conflicting world views and methods be forced to work together.
