Before Combat He rejects the idea of a fair fight, and if he can’t talk his way out of combat using diplomacy or charm person, he attempts to hide in order to surprise his opponents with a sneak attack.
During Combat Though he enjoys a friendly duel as much as the next person, he takes his mission too seriously to risk himself needlessly and uses Spring Attack to stay out of reach, sneak attacking surprised or flanked foes. Against non-good foes, his natural prejudice shows through, and he has no qualms about using lethal force against “inferior specimens.”
Morale He retreats if brought below 10 hit points, preferring to ambush his prey later.
