A title given to a special breed of modern fencing masters. Unlike past counterparts, they pride themselves in blending with ghetto lifestyle a la boheme. Most distinguishing characteristics of a Dote are his/her unquenchable thirst for knowledge in the matters of the sword, and innate desire for socialization. Dotes can typically be found engaged extensively in on-line activities when off-duty.
