Phalanx Warrior

Do not fear, friends! Nothing will get past me!

A powerful Warrior who focuses on protecting allies using reach weapons and shields. For whatever reason, you have adopted the Phalanx way of fighting. Perhaps you were once a soldier,trained for war. Maybe you enjoyed the reach of the spear, but was not willing to give up the shield. Whatever the reason, whatever the path, you are now a Phalanx warrior; you plant yourself in the middle of battle, keeping all foes within reach of you. You don't let anyone past, and if they get too far, you lunge across the battle field making sure none escapes.

When you pick up a spear, reality seems to just skew slightly...
