Squire Halsten, Squire -- HOW character

Squire Halsten is translated from TFT Grail Quest here.

Halsten was a young farm hand in a village until Sir Trevor came to town. He had learn a little swordplay from a guard hired by the local inn. He also knew his way around horses. Trevor saw potential in the boy and took him on as his squire.

This character has been redesigned as if he was a starting character, not the experienced character depicted on the TFT page.

ST: 10
DX: 13 / 11
IQ: 9
EN: 10

Skills:
Swords
Shield
Riding
Animal Handling
Athletics

Equipment:
Sabre
Leather

Design notes: 
The original Halsten also had Physicker and was ST 11, DX 12, IQ 11. I shifted stats around to give some points to EN. Running was changed to Athletics. Literacy is assumed for Common. The equipment was reduced to what he can afford starting out. So this version is Halsten right as Sir Trevor found him.
