** Davos Seaworth uses charisma, honesty, and diplomacy to bring allies to the cause of his king.

to:

** Despite his rough appearance, Davos Seaworth uses charisma, honesty, and diplomacy to bring allies to the cause of his king.king, such as when he brings Salladhor Saan into Stannis' service and then when he convinces the all-powerful Iron Bank of Braavos (an institution he formerly tried to rob and who have neither forgotten nor forgiven) into backing Stannis on pure nerve and implacable logic. (This helps compensate for Stannis' complete lack of charisma). And despite looking like your stereotypical OldSoldier, Davos has only once drawn his sword, and clearly prefers to get by on his considerable intelligence than with violence.

** Skink-in-Tree's-Shade, Master Wizard of the Wolverine Hall (Sadrith Mora) Mages Guild Hall, isn't known for his magical strength as much as other mages. (That's not to say he's a slouch in the matter, however.) Skink is known more for his ability to handle situations ''diplomatically'', which helps him act as the Guild Master in a region controlled by rivals to the Mages Guild in [[TheClan Great House]] [[EvilSorcerer Telvanni]]. He's the Master Trainer in [[TheCharmer Speechcraft]], and that 100 skill level in Speechcraft isn't just for show.

* Comicbook/BlackPanther is sometimes this, depending on the writer. The epitome was Christopher Priest's run where he was running schemes against multiple opponents simultaneously. While he was more than capable of fighting in person, more often than not regardless of who beat who in the physical fight, T'Challa had already won in strategic terms.

** In the {{Backstory}}, the legendary Chimeri/Dunmeri hero Nerevar was one of these.

In order to complete much of the game, [[{{Reincarnation}} The]] [[PlayerCharacter Nerevarine]] will need to be one as well.
