About Mash

Me Mash. Me barbarian. Me like killin stuff with big axe. After first mission, me use reward money to buy masterwork greataxe, cause me appreciate detailed subtleties of fine dwarven craftsmanship.


Reginald Bartholomew Brightsword VII comes from a long line of paladins. He has 6 older sisters, and by the time he was born, his father had almost given up on producing a male heir to carry on the family tradition.

As a child, he was trained in the ways of combat, honor, and worship of the good and lawful gods. With his physical prowess and below average mental acuity, he excelled at the combat training, but had trouble with the other areas of study. He dealt with the pressure of his family's expectations and seemingly unnecessary rules of honor by becoming a bully to the other kids his age. He earned the nickname "Mash" for shouting his battle cry of "MASH CRUSH KILL DESTROY!!!" whenever he beat other children into the ground.

As a young adult of 16, he rebelled against his family, using the combat training of his youth to strike out on his own as a barbarian. His family had already enrolled him as a member of the Pathfinder Society, expecting him to join his father in the Silver Crusade once he outgrew the recklessness of youth and became a paladin. So Mash took advantage of that membership to begin his career as a hired adventurer.

Mash truly enjoys fighting, and playing up the stereotype of the big, dumb barbarian, such as talking in short phrases and referring to himself as "me" instead of "I". But his intelligence and wisdom are only slightly below average, so he's not quite as stupid as he pretends to be. Years of not living up to his family's expectations taught him that it's better to be underestimated than overestimated.

Mash met Grandmaster Torch on his first Society mission, and the concept of loyalty to other Pathfinders in the field made sense to him. He joined the Shadow Lodge, and has been mentored considerably by Torch. He is very loyal to those he has adventured with, especially his most common adventuring companions - Chibiko, Lightheart, Lore, Slob'mlin, Kara Vadalis, Cinna, and Bitey the Badger.
