Functionally, Sindel is a modified Human Cavalier (MM2, pg. 144) with the Warlord NPC template from the DMG (pg. 183).

Bio:

Despite having spent several years leading various mercenary companies in her homeland of Halbergedia, Sindel had always known that her oppurtunities were dwindling. As a rule mercenaries and adventurers gravitate towards the Border nations because of the dangerous life and many opportunities, and her home was ridding itself of the last vestiges of that existence by the time she was born. So when Sindel heard that Desia, the Border country to the West, was calling for large numbers of mercenaries she jumped at the chance. She packed her bags, bid farewell to family and the mercenary friends unwilling to take the same risk, and marched over the border.

Sindel got a little more than she bargained for in the Horde War. Although she avoided any critical injuries she has a few new scars to her name and the sheer violence of the conflict, especially Three Bridges, was shocking even to her despite years of low-level but intense adventuring. Still, she also gained the riches she had wanted, as well as fame, glory, and rank, as she was one of the mercenaries selected to join the strike teams of the LongArm Division.

Assigned to Wraith Squad, Sindel quickly assumed a position of leadership, both informally and formally when her squadmates voted to give her overall command. While most LongArm squads are almost run by committee because of the equal ranks of their members, Sindel manages Wraith Squad like a more traditional military group. This may actually have more to do with the ranger Galahan’s wishes than with Sindel’s: a survivor of the same Mercenary Corp team as Sindel, the elf pushed hard for her to be in control. He apparently trusts her, although Sindel would say that the easy-going elf annoys her more than anything else.

Sindel leads from the front with sword and shield, yelling out commands and inspiring words to her squadmates. It is generally said of Halbergedians that their collective upper lip has been stiffening since their home joined the Middle Lands, and Sindel is a product of her culture: she’s a little strict, generally no-nonsense, and rarely if ever wavers in the face of adversity. But she’s an adventurer at heart, and Halbergedia hasn’t quite forgotten what it’s like to be on the Border, so she’s been known to relax from time to time.

She has a light Halbergedian accent, although the better part of half a year in Desia has caused it to start slipping. She also knows the Elven language, which she has come to regret learning as a child now that Galahan keeps trying to talk her ears off with it.
