Reflexive Blade (working on better name)[edit]

These great masters of the sword are people who really know how to make great use of their minds. They are known as "great strategists" for their quick thinking, and well thought out plans. Using their big minds, combined with their speed, they can perform great feats of speed and power. However, they are unable to use magic.
