He could have been the same fearful prisoner from Swords and Sandals 2, but is unlikely since he looked old.
He wears armor above his level but is not the only one to do so.
Average Damage: 10
Although difficult, it is possible for The Fearful Prisoner to defeat the player by causing him to charge via an angering taunt. Doing so will still grant the player 2500 gold and, upon entering a duel, the player will be pitted against The Fearful Prisoner again, essentially duplicating the starter gold.
