01/10/2011 328320 Someone who knows who they are and is comfortable with themselves. They are excellent fighters from training and experience and have friends they can rely on for backup if necessary- they rarely do things alone. Someone who can think well under pressure and has constantly funny remarks is also quite exciting to read about.
