The Swashbuckler’s Horse Companion
If you choose a Swashbuckler as your pirate class, the first person you meet on your way out of the stockade will be Subodai. Like you he was captured by the Armada and locked in the brig below decks.
When you first meet Subodai he is a Horse Barbarian. You can learn much more about his abilities and skills from Pirate101 Central.
As you level up your companions they will occasionally reach epic promotion opportunities. Subodai’s first epic promotion occurs when he is promoted to Level 13.
After you applied training points and he reaches this level, he’ll tell you he needs to speak with you. Let’s go to a nearby Tavern so you can talk.
In the Tavern he’ll tell you “Captain, the time has come for me to prove myself. I must earn my warrior’s Plume. The spirits of my ancestors must guide me. ”
He will further explain “The first thing I need are talons from Birds of Prey – at home I would use Falons, but Scarakeets should do.” This dialog will give you a new quest: A Fistful of Feathers.
This quest will require you to have access to Monquista.
