Clawspur is a charr that is originally part of a charr player character's warband. He takes part in the battle against Duke Barradin's ghostly forces in the Village of Smokestead. If the player does not choose him as their sparring partner in their biography, he dies during the battle. If he is the player's sparring partner, he survives and helps them along the rest of their personal story.

He is described as a quiet person, even for a thief, and prefers to make quick kills from the shadow.


Early years[edit]

Personal story[edit]

The Icebrood Saga[edit]

In 1333 AE, Clawspur assisted the United Legions in their war against the rogue Imperator Bangar Ruinbringer's Dominion forces in Drizzlewood Coast. While there, he had a chance meeting with the Legionnaire who had become known as the Pact Commander.

Clawspur explained that, unlike many charr, he had never viewed Aurene as a threat because he trusted in the former Legionnaire's judgement, and he even considered the Elder Dragon an honorary member of the warband.

Clawspur also revealed that he had done his best to be worthy of his mantle of Legionnaire in the warband. Despite recruiting more members and having adventures with them, he was unable to prevent some warbandmates from either dying or defecting to the Dominion. The defectors included potential warbandmates Cerosi Breaksteel, Elexus Shredskin, Luccia Wildeye, and Yahuk Fellstrike. Clawspur vividly remembered the deaths of Howl and the original warband, so he swore not to lose one more warbandmate to Bangar.

Burn me! It can' that really you, Boss?
Talk more option tango.png At ease, soldier.
You've sure been busy, huh? Elder Dragons, a god, an undead lich... Heard all the stories!
Talk more option tango.png And Aurene...?
Never bought into Bangar's propaganda. I know you, Boss. If you think this dragon can help Tyria, then she's in the warband. No question!
Talk more option tango.png How's the warband? (Same as below.)
Talk end option tango.png I'll catch up with you another time.
Talk more option tango.png How's the warband?
Honestly? Thought I'd come into my own as legionnaire after you left. Grew the warband, went on adventures, but... We lost a lot of good people. Dead, or worse. Defected.
Talk more option tango.png You're helping to put a stop to it, that's what matters.
Yeah... We lost our first warband to the ghosts, and Howl to Zhaitan. I'll be damned if I lose one more because of Bangar.
Talk more option tango.png What do you think of Aurene? (Same as "And Aurene...?")
Talk end option tango.png Stay safe.

Too many knives can make a mess of a simple job.
You're good, you're lucky, or you're dead. Those are your only options.
Fear is as much a weapon as your blade.
