Swords: Saber


Sabers are a type of heartsword with a wide, curved blade.

Saber wielders are confident, uncompromising, and hold everyone – including themselves – to high standards. They have lofty ambitions, set big goals, and work tirelessly to reach them.

A well-adjusted saber will come across as cool, confident, and talented. They may express self-doubts and insecurities with close friends, but avoid those subjects in mixed company, so outside observers tend to think they aren't insecure about anything. They appreciate blunt criticism, as long as it's serious and thoughtful, because it helps them improve.

Sabers tend to over-estimate how well other people will take criticism. Their instinct is to be blunt with anyone they feel doesn't measure up, short-tempered and impatient with anyone they don't think is trying enough in the first place.

That said, they don't expect more from other people than they do from themselves…so a badly-adjusted saber will turn most of their criticism inward. They'll over-extend themselves, trying to be perfect at everything, splitting their focus too much to master anything, and then getting down on themselves for all of it.

  • Benefits from the support of: a backsword who can encourage them to hold themself to realistic standards; a broadsword who can encourage them accept help and support; a rapier who can catch them when they're coming across as too mean
