Description: Kardel Sharpeye was born deep in the mountainous valleys of Knollen where, since time immemorial, the folk have survived by hunting the strange, cliff-dwelling steepstalkers above their village–killing them from a distance and collecting their carcasses where they fell. Sharpeye was among the best of these strange folk for whom projectile weapons are but another appendage, and to shoot is as natural as to touch. On his day of summoning, when he was to gain full standing in his village, Sharpeye took the ancient test: a single shot from the valley floor to strike a beast down from the cliffs. To miss was to be dishonored. With his entire village standing vigil, Sharpeye took his shot. A steepstalker fell; the crowd cheered. But when the carcass was collected, the village grew silent, for the elders found that the bullet had pierced its glittering central eye then fallen to be clenched in the steepstalker’s mandibles. This ominous sign was the literal opening of a dark prophesy, foretelling both greatness and exile for the gunman who made such a shot. Sharpeye the Sniper was thus, by his own skill, condemned to make his way apart from his people–and unwelcome back among them until he has fulfilled the remainder of the prophecy by attaining legendary stature on a field of battle.

While relatively weak in close ranged combat, Sniper can be deadly from a distance. His frequent Headshots, delivered with terrifying accuracy, cause disruption and heavy damage. He can also attack from great distances as he masters long-range aiming with his trusty sniper rifle. Combine these two skills with the unrivaled projectile velocity of bullets, and it doesn’t take long to appreciate his unparalleled knack for last-hits. When dealing with large waves of foes and heavy structures, his Shrapnel spreads damage and slows enemy movement in a wide area. He is renowned for his ultimate attack, Assassinating victims from astounding distances, using a specialized and costly ammunition round. If you find yourself in Sniper’s crosshairs, say your prayers…and run!
