-The duelist may choose a single enemy to be their focus at the start of combat.
-All attacks made against the chosen enemy gain +1 to Hit. While all attacks made by the chosen enemy suffer -1 to Hit on the duelist.
-All attacks made against the duelist by other non-focused enemies gain +1 to Hit as the Duelist is entirely focused on the enemy before them.
-The duelist’s focus cannot be changed until the focus is defeated or the duelist uses Disengage. Once a focused enemy is down, the duelist may immediately nominate a new focus.
-If the duelist does not have a focus, they may choose to nominate a focus at the beginning of their turn.
Active Ability: Disengage
The duelist may use one action to disengage from their chosen focused enemy on their turn.
This does not immediately set a new focused enemy and the duelist must wait until the following turn to select a new target.
Reaction Ability: Parry-Riposte
Once per battle, the duelist may intercept an attack made by their focused enemy that was targeting an ally. This attack's damage and bondage effects are cancelled and the duelist gains +2 damage for the first attack made against that opponent on their next turn.
Player Ons/Offs: Bondage, transformation, tentacles, petplay/ mutilation. gore
Marianne is a quite shy girl, preferring to stay in her humble abode and read her interesting novels instead of adventuring. That doesn't meant she's a slouch in combat though. Her father was a great fencing champion and the meek girl easily followed suit as she was taught up to young adulthood. Despite her tastes, she wants to go on adventures to make her parents proud of the daughter they raised, even if they already are, as they gave her everything.
