Bandogrim Cotton chuckled to himself as the lumbering half-orc stumbled from the ring, still groggy from his brief unconsciousness. "Typical brutish brawler," the little halfling thought to himself. "Speed and strength and flailing limbs will fall prey to a wise plan, every time."
Bandogrim thought back on his youth, when the human boys would prod at him and embarrass him on his way to and from the market. It was on one of those days that the kindly herbalist from Minkai had come to his rescue, scattering the boys with a flurry of smacks and trips. The old man spoke little of the Common tongue, and Bandogrim knew nothing of the Tian languages, but the two became fast friends nonetheless. The halfling boy followed the old man about, learning all that he could-- about herbs and the martial arts and the secret power within oneself.
The poor, old herbalist was passed on, now; but Bandogrim Cotton's journey had barely begun. He had come here, to this monastery dedicated to the god of self-perfection, in order to further his own skills and knowledge.
Bandogrim relies on his ability to predict his opponent's movements to bolster his own defenses, biding his time in order to place a well-planned attack right through his enemy's guard. He makes liberal use of footwork and head-movement in order to create angles of attack, before striking out with a strong assault once his opening has been made. As short as he is, Bandogrim rarely relies on kicking techniques-- his little legs are much more suited for moving him into advantageous positions. His fists, elbows, and even his head are his weapons of choice, as he targets his opponent's vital areas: knees, groin, kidneys, liver, and solar plexus.
More of Mike's defensive ability. People always forget how small Mike Tyson was, for a heavyweight. His opponents were often much, much larger than him.
