ProudWarriorRaceGuy. Due to the connotation with nature, tends to overlap with TheBeastmaster.


Also known as the Archer, Predator, Poacher, Stalker, Trapper, or Woodsman, and many other names besides. The concept dates [[OlderThanDirt back to prehistory]], seen in hunter-gatherer societies, and several deities represented the Hunt (the earliest was perhaps Neith/Net; [[Myth/EgyptianMythology Egyptian goddess]] of war and hunting). Often their skills are seen as a demonstration of physical strength and power.

This is a character who's life and personality is built around game-hunting. Motivations vary- they may hunt to survive, either due to [[TheHermit self-imposed isolation]] or as part of a hunter-gatherer culture, hunt purely for the thrill of it, or hunt to attain some [[GlorySeeker sort of glory]]. Regardless of their motivations, these characters tend to be CloserToEarth and have a disregard for the rules of polite society. Game Hunter characters are unafraid to take risks, and may undergo a RagsToRiches story if they are TheHero. In terms of characterization, the characters run the gamut from NatureHero to ProudWarriorRaceGuy to AlwaysChaoticEvil, but have a tendency to be independent and driven regardless of alignment.
