The Lieutenants: 4th, Pactus the Strong

“Word is someone brought the First to one knee this morning. Who was it?” –The Lieutenant Training Grounds, Islos

So, we have come to the top four. These are great men amongst great men. Not great for the goodness of their personal intentions or from the morality of the outcomes they carve into history with the iron they wield, but great for they are the best, and the world, however hard it may try to change the fact, is but an observer and inevitable subject to their wills.

Many stay as far away from them as they possibly can, yet some desire glory and revel at the chance to meet these “gods of war” one-on-one. As foolish as those 99 out of 100 are, that one hero to prevail will surely never be forgotten.

First of the four, is the 4th Lieutenant, Pactus. Like Rammos’s title, he has been given “the Strong” as a testament to an unmatched ability, in this case his ridiculous power.

Pactus stands just over seven feet tall, and is sometimes called the Giant, for obvious reasons. He is always seen with his weapon, a two-handed, iron hammer. Pactus is renowned for taking on more than one opponent at a time, and is effective against the rare and challenging squads of Esteri soldiers who fight together in unison (they were eluded to here, in the second-last paragraph).

Pactus has an incredible reach, and although he lacks impressive speed, many have fallen victim to the assumption that he is slow. Adding to the intimidation factor of his large size, Pactus is also a serious man. Like the 1st, he is not someone you would ever dare make physical contact with, for any reason.
