  1. Fighter

    The fighter is one of the standard playable character classes in the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game. A fighter is a versatile, weapons-oriented warrior who fights using skill, strategy and tactics. Fighter is a generic and broad class; individual fighters have diverse backgrounds and different styles. Bodyguards, adventurers, former soldiers, invading bandit kings, or master swordsmen are all fighters, yet they come from all walks of life and backgrounds and often find themselves on very different alignments, goals, and sides in a conflict. In the 4th edition, Fighters are Martial Defenders. Other martial oriented character classes include the warlord, ranger, and rogue. Other defenders include the paladin.

Examples of fighter in a Sentence

  1. Edith Hamilton:

    He was, first and last, the born fighter, to whom the consciousness of being matched against a great adversary suffices and who can dispense with success.

And, at the worst, there is that in us which can turn defeat into victory.
