I'm wanting to design a character who uses a sword cane as his primary weapon. Something.. scoundrel like in his design, and for a city sort of campaign.
Currently I'm thinking of either doing A rogue-swashbuckler or a cad fighter.
The biggest problem I have with Pathfinder is smart fighter types need so many feats @.@
One of my big inspirations is guy who fights without honor in game of thrones. (but his dead opponent did.)
Bron is moderately cool, but it's his personality, not his fighting style. In fact, I don't think Pathfinder can really simulate the "I fight dirty but win against honorable opponents" style; by Pathfinder standards, Bron wins because he's higher level.
Maybe Cad is close, as you've mentioned. By the time you're 6th level with Improved, Greater, and Quick Dirty Trick at +3 CMB which only requires one of your iterative attacks to hinder a foe for several rounds, you just might be able to pull off a "dirty rather than decent" fighting style. Until then, you may find the concept a bit frustrating.

Here is what I got for level 1.
At level 2 i plan on getting imp dirty trick. I wish there was a way to draw hidden weapons faster, but I will be getting Quick Draw/Imp initiative.
I think Slight of Hand and Stealth will be my other two skill focuses, or maybe should do Sense motive/Perception.
Our stat limit is a 25 point buy.
This is what I'm currently planning for when I hit level 20. Sadly though the hero maker doesn't really allow for Fast Learner to be used.. or I have not yet learned how to use it. So there would be 20 more skill points.
