Here's the difference, Seth in the RP, is substantially weaker than the character sheet I posted.
He, in the RP, according to smylez only has a bow, and is tier 3. All of your characters could kill him in combat.
Seth, T3 human
A 17 year old bandit skilled with the bow. The youngest captain of the Cavaliers, a knight brigade, he became disillusioned and disappeared when he found the killing of rebellious civilians appalling.
So basically, he has no magic, and only a bow and arrow. a ranged weapon that will be negated in ever single fight(No one will let their characters actually be hit. Deflection or "merely a flesh wound" will occur far too often. And then they will get within melee range and without a sword, well...)
So no advantages from magic that might give me an edge, no melee weapon, and no weapon that can't be negated.
He cannot run away without a mount, (human foot speed).
Weak character is weak.
