Gladiator v. 1.0

In the big business of Pit fighting, most fight long and hard to earn respect and then freedom. However, this is not always the case. The "profession" has become so lucrative that some have decided to make more than just a career out of it. These chosen few have different reasons for choices: some simply crave the competition and the attention it brings, while others find the money just too good to leave. For those talented and resilient enough, the Gladiator was born. They are high-paid and well respected professionals that are almost always associated with a Stable and a corresponding promoter. Some freelancers eexist, and make a decent living; but the real money lies with the stables and their vast network of fighters and venues. Gladiators learn almost every conceivable weapon skill, as this is their life, their love and usually, is all they have ever known. Most Gladiators have passed the point of being exploited by the promoters and stables. The money generated by the Gladiators earns them unprecedented respect and freedom. A Gladiator would not be there if He/She had not chosen to be. This sets them apart from the pseudo-slavery aspect that some common Pit Fighters must deal with. Although it goes without saying that a money-making Gladiator would find it "difficult" at best to walk away from a stable. There have been more than a few Gladiators that wanted to leave the business, only to find an assassins dart in his back. Rival promoters and stables can sometimes "help" the with the extraction of a profitable Galdiator. This practice usually causes a tremendous fallout and is done with extreme caution. All is fair in Love and War..and business!!
