@Narubi what I have so far:
In order to avenge his master who taught him the way of the "death weapons"*, Ronin a 6'3 warrior, sets is way to defeat the "Goblin Lord" whom scalped his master, upon his way, Ronin realise that time is short upon (a week or month, since its a short story(?)) he himself will be... BALD!?(His bandana could be a way to hide the bald spot) with this in mind he wont be able to wield a sword if that happens. (maybe adding allies can help(?))
My suggestion would be a female witch that could help him not going bald at the end, and could bring some room for romance.
*Death weapons was just a name I came up with to add a fighthing style!
I think maybe the fact his master was scalped or shaved could help his phobia for baldness.
This is the draft I made so far tho!
