A rouge mercenary?
A ROUGE MERCENARY?!?
The man despises all manner of fanciful fops, whether they cover their faces with rouge mascara or crimson blush. He doesn't care if you're a mercenary or not, he will have none of it!
Before you can protest that rouge is a rather lovely color, and goes with your facial features quite nicely, the regal figure sends you off to be decapitated.
Well done, hero. You're dead now.
