A fechter is a slave trained primarily for specialised weapon combative fighting, usually for public entertainment. Whilst it is a practice explicitly forbidden by the laws of the Erde Realm, slave colonies amassed for the purpose of fighting spectacles are still operating on the black market, the largest of which is organised by Nahren Bedauern. They are distinct from streiter slaves, who do not utilise weapons in combat.
