One is wary of making a comment if so many of the respected fighters and gods have come to this conclusion - but your comments on Tetsuo seem to relate more to most canny, or most opportunist fighter
These may not be admirable traits viewed by your new guild - but then sorcerers are not looking for plaudits from knights - just their souls and bodies.
In my experience, Tetsuo is a better fighter than me. So if you feel a need for this title, it should for the moment come to me. And then of course - anyone who loses to me - becomes the proud recipient
