Something of a hero from the Carderock Resistance. Regards Typhoon Krag, whom he met during the Siege of Carderock, as his lifelong rival. He tends to emphasize what he thinks is important regardless of how others feel. A pretty friendly fellow, as long as he isn't training you.
Carderock Pass is under constant threat from the nearby monsters. That makes it a land of opportunity for soldiers and mercenaries. I think this is the perfect place for youngsters like you to get a taste for adventuring.
I prefer civilization, thank you very much. (+2.00 Aversion)
Where's your spirit? What are you even doing out here? If everyone thought like you, we would've all packed up and fled the continent by now. Civilization! Pah.
I'm a pacifist. (+?.?? Fondness)
Peace attained without effort is meaningless. Monsters won't hesitate about carving you up. You'd best learn to defend yourself.
And there's so much history here. (+?.?? Fondness)
History? What's the point of history? The here and now are what matter.
Yeah! Who should I fight next? (+2.00 Fondness)
That's the spirit! Don't worry about the details. At your age, all you should care about is slaying as many monsters as you can.
I hear he's the second son of some noble family in Saint's Haven. Maybe that's why he feels like he can lord himself over me. Just the other day, he grabbed me and started rambling on about the Goddess and my eternal soul.
I'll be careful around him. (+0.73 Fondness)
Good idea. He can get someone hurt with all that Goddess talk. He'll talk your ear off, I mean.
How typical. Clerics. (+?.?? Fondness)
They're not all bad. But their tendency to preach is...tiring. After I told him I was busy, he went on for 3 more hours. Just thinking about it gives me a headache.
He's just worried about you. (+?.?? Aversion)
He should be more worried about himself. He corners me like that again, I'll have trouble restraining myself.
You really should heed the divine teachings... (+?.?? Aversion)
SHUT IT! I don't care about the hereafter or the Goddess's grace or any of that.
Deckard's a good man, and he knows how to enjoy life. We often go to the Arena for a little leisure gambling. Good old Deckard always bets on the long shot, and I always walk away a little richer for it...
Can I go next time? (+?.?? Fondness)
Hey, hey, hey! Deckard is MY friend. Find someone your, um, own age to go gambling with.
What kind of friend are you? (+?.?? Aversion)
He'd lose the money one way or the other. It's my duty as his friend to make sure that money doesn't go to some unsavory character.
That's a nice trick. (+?.?? Fondness)
Yes. Last time, I ate like a king for a week thanks to him. What a good friend he is!
The Goddess would not approve of your gambling. (+?.?? Aversion)
(Chandler looks up to the sky, regret on his face.) Typhoon Krag... Though we were of different races, we shared the blood of a warrior. We never had a proper conversation, but we truly understood each other.
Sounds like a wonderful memory. (+?.?? Fondness)
Yes. I wish Typhoon Krag was still alive. What I wouldn't give for one last battle...
I want a rival like that, too! (+?.?? Fondness)
(Chandler nods approvingly.) You'll have it too, someday. I'm sure of it.
That sounds like love, not rivalry. (+?.?? Aversion)
It was nothing like that! Love doesn't come close to what Typhoon Krag and I shared. The heat of battle, how I would lose myself in his big, dark eyes as we charged at each other... No, nothing like love.
You were two savages in a civilized world. (+?.?? Aversion)
If only a savage can experience a rivalry like that, then I'll gladly be a savage. For all the learning in the world, there are no words to describe the communication Typhoon Krag and I shared.
Why would you ask me that? Well, no harm in telling you, I suppose. Long ago, before I even met Typhoon Krag, there was a pretty girl who lived next door that I was in love with. But she got married and moved away. In my despair I tried to join the Divine Order, but I couldn't take it and quit two days later.
At least it worked out for the girl? (+?.?? Aversion)
We may not have been a good match, but I don't need to hear things like that from you.
You were in the Order? (+?.?? Fondness)
Just for two days. I thought I was going to die! And the gruel they made us eat...disgusting. Don't tell Germaine about this! He'd probably make it his mission to bring me back to the faith.
I was expecting a more interesting story. (+?.?? Aversion)
Sorry. Should I have included more explosions? Maybe a sword fight? You don't even know the meaning of romance, do you?
Glad you managed to escape the Order. (+?.?? Fondness)
Yes, that is by far the best decision I've ever made. If I had become a cleric, I'd never have met my destined rival or had my many adventures.
That's easy. My greatest wish is...peace. (Chandler looks unusually serene.)
Liar! No way that's YOUR wish. (+?.?? Aversion)
You must think I'm a ruffian. I fight for peace. I've always fought for peace. Don't you forget it!
A mercenary that longs for peace? Strange. (+?.?? Aversion)
Mercenaries don't only fight for money, kid. We wouldn't last long if that was our mindset. To be a successful mercenary, you have to have a heart filled with love, ambition, and desire! A knack for violence isn't enough.
That's a great wish. (+?.?? Fondness)
So, is that your wish, too? Never let the desire for peace go. Even when the enemy has you surrounded, hold onto your hope for peace and give it your all. That's how life should be lived.
Peace... Is that why you've fought for so long? (+?.?? Fondness)
That's right. We won't find peace by letting the monsters take our land and kill us all. That's what's kept me fighting all these years. (Chandler pats his hammer with pride, and for a moment he seems like a weary old man.)
