That executioner in Solitude. I know you can recruit him, and his armor looks pretty cool. In a later character I may want to use that. I've tried pickpocketing him with the pickpocket perks, but it doesn't show up in his inventory. I haven't tried killing him yet, but going by the fact that any armor at all replaces what he is wearing, I'm thinking it isn't actually armor.
Got any advice?
Everything and nothing, heart and mind, fantasy and reality. These thing fly through my mind, driving me towards madness.
