The disease does not hold him back.  It instead fills him with pain within to dull the pain without.

This is such interesting character design. I don't think I've ever seen anything like this. I wonder how you came up with it. A leper who wears heavy armour and a mask, and who can take lots of damage.

Just watched an early release "Let's Play" from the Super Best Friends' channel on Youtube of Darkest Dungeon, and I LOVE the Leper! They can both take and dish out huge amounts of damage, and even gain an ability to heal themself! Only downside is a problem connecting with attacks, but with another character buffing accuracy for them, they almost seem better than the Crusader at front-line fighting!

As a side note, I'm super-glad this game got kickstarted! I had honestly all but forgotten about these nifty characters until I saw that LP, and so far, the game looks amazing! When it comes out, I fully intend to buy it if possible~! :D

I gotta agree with everyone who says that this guy has a cool design. Very unique and a very unsuspecting class in an rpg game.

I got this guy in the game one one time and I gotta say, he knows how to take hits and give them... If he he's able to connect a hit that is. XD Hopefully there'll be an item improve his accuracy.

Hey do you mind if I use this guy as my icon? If anyone asks, I'll gladly tell them where I got it from and who made it.

This guy is definitely my favorite. I actually plan on cosplaying him, maybe at this year's DragonCon.

I choose this for cool character favorite but I really like all your designs for this game. Very very good. I hope they will be normal proportions and not legend of zelda series.

They are about 4 heads high.  They have just a dash of cute to offset the horrible stuff that happens to them, but the retain a gritty badassery as well.  Nothing superdeformed...

Well, it must be said, I wasn't expecting some one suffering from Leprosy would be a class... Can't even begin to guess what he does frankly.

There's 11 more where he came from!  We're intent on avoiding the traditional fighter/mage/thief/cleric thing.

The Leper is a front row/melee tank class.  He doesn't feel pain,and he's already sick, so his resistances to other illnesses and general stress are really high.  Unfortunately, because of his condition, he is very hard to heal, and can't really accept buffs from his team-mates.  He's also a 'swing-for-the-fences' type of fighter.  His blows hit for a ton of damage, but they don't *always hit...

I notice that his lines sort of teeter back and forth between not being able to feel pain... and being in a state of constant pain. Is it a case of "feels so much pain that adding more doesn't matter" or is he just numb on the outside but aching on the inside? Or is it a bit more open to interpretation? I've been sorta teetering a bit on how to handle it, myself, hoping I'm not terribly far off (then again, my plague doctor is WAY off, though I think it's justified in that she's not really a plague doctor, just pretending to be one).

Either way, he's easily my favorite of the characters from a thematic standpoint. I'm a sucker for long-suffering characters who become all the stronger just to spite what fate has given them! Not to say that the other characters don't have at least some of this going for them, but the leper has it in SPADES and I just can't help but feel profoundly sorry for the guy.
