Royal Protector (Variant Human Banneret)

This is the fighter version of the bodyguard monk I created. As I moved on, I was a bit dissatisfied with the nature of the magical abilities overall for the bodyguard. I want the princess to have magic and the main character and a side-kick to have some racial magic, but otherwise I want the amount of magic to be rather low and the amount of casting the Shadow Monk had crossed the line of what I was happy with, which I was not expecting. That said, I'm not using actual stats for writing the characters, but I felt the concept veered off a bit. In any case, I am going to build this as a Banneret, aka a "Royal Purple Dragon Knight" out of the Sword Coast Adventurer's Guide though Swashbuckler is another possibility.

Background is still going to be Courtier. I considered going with standard human instead of variant, but I want to give them that Sentinel Feat right off the bat.

For this I am using my typical theoretical 30 pt array of 15, 14, 13, 12, 11, 10.

1st Level Variant Human Fighter
Str: 16
Dex: 11
Con: 15
Int: 12
Wis: 10
Cha: 13

HP: 12

Intimidation (Fighter) +3

Background: Courtier

Feat: Sentinel

Fighting Style: Protection
Second Wind

Equipment
Chain Mail

Shield

Reasoning: When you're playing a bodyguard, the sentinel feat just seems like very much a must have. The same with the Protection Fighting Style.

2nd to 5th Level


2nd Level - Action Surge (One use), +8 HP (20)

3rd Level - Martial Archetype: Banneret, Rallying Cry, +8 HP (28)

4th Level - Ability Score Improvement: Athlete (Strength), +8 HP (36)

5th Level - Proficiency Bonus: +3, Extra Attack, +8 HP (44)

Reasoning: I took the Athlete feat just to get Strength to an odd number and I also wanted to grab the ability to kippup that the Athlete feat provides.

19th Level - Ability Score Improvement: Menacing, +13 HP (251)

20th Level - Extra Attack (3), +13 HP (264)

Reasoning: With Constitution gotten up to 20, I decided to give them Menacing as they were supposed to supply the Intimidation that the princess lacks. Probably another reason I was dissatisfied with the monk version for the purposes of the story.
