Apex Warrior (Ranger/Fighter)

Rangers are often seen as warriors of the wild, studying animals, surviving off the land, and becoming one with the environment around them, all the while protecting them from those who would seek to destroy it. Among these nature lovers are those who have delved so deep into the nature, behaviors, and culture of a specific animal that they have become one of them. Enter the apex warrior–a champion of the wild who has attained the pinnacle of natural ferocity, wild intuition, and skill with natural weapons by living among the species to which he has developed an affinity for. He has seamlessly fused the survival instincts, wilderness training, and skill with natural weapons inherent in his chosen species with combat training of a devious, unrelenting guerilla fighter. By utilizing stealth, behaviors, and survival techniques learned from the very animals themselves, the apex warrior is one to be feared if encountered in the wilderness realms of the world.
