Cyber-Knight is +3 to strike and parry.
• Meanwhile, the Cyber-Knight's gun toting or tech-laden opponent is -3 to dodge the Cyber-Knight's attacks and loses 2 melee attacks/actions due to time spent compensating for the Cyber-Knight's amazing agility, combat skills and awareness.

Cloud Sensors: The Cyber-Knight cannot be accurately detected with Sensors.
• Sensors" are limited to those in Robots, Power Armor, Vehicles with Weapons/Sensor systems.
• Inexperienced (1st-3rd Level) sensor operators cannot use sensors at all, and -2 attacks per melee every time they try to figure out what's going on.

Background
The early years.
Oliver was born in the 80’s PA calendar. His family was never one to celebrate holidays or birthdays really, they were trying too hard to survive in the magic zone. His childhood, that of which he can remember, was filled with chores and farm tasks. These things though came to an end when a Coalition seek and destroy team came through their little village and rained fire on them. Both of Oliver’s parents were killed in the assault as well as a majority of the other villagers. Oliver hid in a creek bed near his home for three days before finally creeping out due to hunger. It was here that he met Sir Martin, a Cyber-knight who confided in the child that a vision had brought him there. Oliver left the ruins of his village, and traveled with Sir Martin for what seemed like years, even though it was only a few weeks. Sir Martin took the boy to the home of his master a Cyber-Knight known as Sir Franklin. Sir Martin left the boy in his former master’s care.

The Harsh master.
Sir Franklin was a harsh and often times cruel task master, making his several young apprentices work grueling hours doing seemingly mundane tasks, like chopping wood or clearing brush. The children were nearly as bad as their master, fighting for the coveted spot of favored pupil. Oliver spent several years with Sir Franklin, or The Harsh Master as Oliver had come to think of him. These tasks were interspersed with lessons of a variety of subjects for reading and writing to field stripping firearms. Oliver spent eight grueling years with his teacher before he had been deemed worthy enough, or forged in the crucible as Sir Franklin liked to say, to make the trek to a monastery of the Cyber-Knight order. It was here that Oliver received his cyber armor and demonstrated his ability to summon the psi-blade.

Dream vision.
Oliver spent a year in the monastery, learning with other Cyber-Knights. One evening after a series of strenuous tests, Oliver retired to the dormitory. It was on this night that Oliver had a dream vision. In his dream Oliver saw two knights walking a path when they come to a fork in the road, one leads to the city beyond while the other goes around it. The two quarrel over which path to take, at first trying to reason with one another. One of two Cyber-Knights offers a challenge, the winner getting to choose the path they’ll take. The two Cyber-Knights battle for what seems like hours, psi-swords clashing against each other. The knight who wanted to travel the path bypassing the city calmly blocks and attacks very little, while the other knight becomes enraged and savage. Eventually the second knight slays the first knight and travels to the city to continue his path of bloodshed. This dream frightens Oliver and he tells it to the master of the monastery, but little comes of the dream vision at that time.

Valley of a thousand bandits.
Now fully a Cyber-Knight, Oliver is invited on his first crusade. An experienced knight named Lady Bridgette and her followers are planning a crusade against a large band of marauders and bandits, known for tormenting and killing innocent folk. Oliver quickly and enthusiastically joins the crusade, heading into the Pecos Empire to fight the bandits in their home. Several months of hard campaigning came to a head in a small valley, where the remaining bandits battled the few surviving members of the crusade. By the end of the fighting only Oliver remained alive, triumphant Oliver still felt as if he had lost. Oliver buried the remains of the battle, which took him several days, before heading north to find other knight to tell the story of the battle to.

Call to war.
While in the Colorado Baronies, Oliver heard the news that the brewing conflict between Tolkeen and the Coalition States had finally come to a head with the Coalition embarking on full scale war. Oliver headed north to join the fight against the Coalition, meeting up with several high ranking members of the Cyber-Knights along the way. Tolkeen greeted Oliver with open arms and put him to work battling their enemies. Oliver felt at home, when word came that Lord Coake didn’t want the Cyber-Knights fighting in this war, he promptly ignored it knowing he was needed there. Oliver fought valiantly and gained great prestige amongst his team and fellow soldiers.

Sorcerers revenge.
The Sorcerers Revenge was the killing blow that never came. Oliver was shocked to see what level Tolkeen would drop to, just to win their war with the Coalition, enlisting demons and monsters to fight the enemy. Fellow soldiers committing what could only be called crimes against the universe. Oliver’s mind nearly snapped. He deserted the field of battle and headed south. Oliver discarded his shiny knight’s armor, and with each step away from the conflict he discarded another piece of his old life until there was nothing but a tired looking man.

Walking the wasteland/Exile.
Oliver traveled the wasteland deserts, at first avoiding conflict, but eventually fighting for those in need. He hid his true nature, denying what he had done or where he had been. Oliver became a figure for justice, but stayed to the realms of obscurity. Very few would recognize the young knight who had entered the war on Tolkeen, the last few years have aged the man considerably. It is for certain to all that he is a haunted individual.
