Techniques with no invested points are known to Parmenion and he will probably use them, thats why are those listed here already.
Parmenion is a Greek slave Gladiator (Social Stigma: Valuable Property).
Born to a Greek slave courtesan, Parmenion was sold to a Gladiator Ludus at young age because of his quick and hot temper, which was found too un-tameable to train him as a male companion or an enuch servant.
Parmenion’s training started at age 10 as a Pugilist (bare-handed boxer/wrestler). At his teen years he already won few matches against older and stronger oponents, so his Lanista (owner of Gladiator School and local Arena) decided to give him additional training with weapons. There was one less Thraex stylist, than desired at that time, so Parmenion was set to be trained in this style.
As a Pugilist, Parmenion is already known among a few for his favorite combination to lock oponents arm or head and than throw or takedown from this lock. Parmenion then usualy follows with Knee Drop or finishing Exotic Handstrike blow going to low stance (crouch or kneel).
As a Thraex, Parmenion haven’t been to Arena yet, but his shape and training progres makes him very promissing gladiator, despise his average look and still little too short temper.
Parmenion himself prefers Pugilist matches where he feels more confident, but because of his desire to free himself from slavery eventualy, he will do his best at any match that will bring him closer to this goal ad he belives that he is good enough to achieve that.
