It looks to me as though being hit causes him knockback, shock and even perhaps stunning. It wastes a second, at least.

Quite unrealistic IRL (especially since he's the only one who wears all-white and frankly sticks out like a sore thumb). That translates to Shadowing with no limitations.
Very high Shadowing, I think. As long as player skill is enough to ensure that the right buttons are mashed, he can follow anyone without much of a fear that he'll lose the opposed roll. So 18-20 skill, at least.

My instinct would be to base this on Rapier Wit.

Forcing an AoA leaves the enemy more vulnerable than stunning them, but on the other hand, it exposes the character to an All-Out Attack that might easily be very dangerous, whereas a stunned foe won't attack at all.

If it had the same cost as Rapier Wit, I'd say that a win in the QC forced a Committed Attack and a win by 5 or more forced an All-Out Attack.

I haven't looked this thread over too thoroughly, but has anyone looked into his ability to throw Greatswords or Greataxes? And his ability doesn't only aim for the body but these weapons mainly hit for the head.

Bah, typical Throwing Art will do that, optionally with Targeted Attack.
