5e Tiefling War Sergeant

This is a build for a 5e Tiefling infantry sergeant.  This is based on a character of mine named Shard from a 4e PbP game that fizzled away early.  She was a tiefling from a poor part of time that joined the military to earn money for her siblings'. She was a fighter with elements of warlord.

Reasoning: I've put these Ability Score Improvements toward increasing her ability to detect threats and ability to deal damage.  The Maneuvers chosen also increase the character's ability to deal damage, which hasn't been the strong point of this build.
