Floris – Chief Banksia
Chief Banksia was an exceptionally effective leader of some of the Floris Tribe forces during The Drums of War. He was particularly good at luring his enemies into a false sense of security before launching an ambush or decisive attack. Known equally for both his brutality and stubbornness, Chief Banksia would not allow any Floris Occulite that wasn’t at their best onto the field of battle, lest they show the Floris Tribe to be weak. This resulted in his Tribe being sometimes woefully outnumbered on the battlefield. To many other Chiefs this would spell disaster, but to Chief Banksia he saw it as a challenge, adopting unique tactics and strategies that saw his Tribe snatch remarkable victories form the very jaws of defeat on many occasions.
Chief Banksia was initially against the idea of ending The Drums of War where he had been able to establish himself as someone to be feared. However, seeing an opportunity to consistently prove his prowess on the field of battle through representing his Tribe in the Arena saw a swift change of attitude towards the concept. He revels in every appearance he has in the Arena, using his favourite attack ‘Stone Swing’ to knock out his opponents. His ‘Ambush’ tactics have transferred well to the Arena where he can go from being in ‘Camouflage’ to pulling off a ‘Brutal Charge’ in the blink of an ‘eye’.
