I am Sperling the Swordsman because swords are the sculptor's chisel in the Art of War. I heartily embrace new techniques and strategems for swordcraft and have respect for worthy opponents. I was born to human parents, Gerald the Good and Greta the Duelist, both masters of swordplay in their own right. I was raised by the soldiers of their company. I am 5 feet 10 inches tall with long sandy hair, an elegant moustache, and brown eyes. I am a man of good humor but serious about my craft. I will become Ruler of Kings by awing the unruly with the taste of cold steel!.
