Some notes:

* It looks like she already got rid of the warhorse to free up some Resource Points, so that's no longer an issue.  Yay!
* She should swap out Shield Training for Armor Training...  except that none of her lifepaths give her Armor Training.  Oops!
* Some of her Beliefs and Instincts looks weak.

looks like a great character. and no need for a warhorse without Mounted Combat. (note the "foot" in footsoldier.)

Given the historically inspired nature of BW, possession of a superior quality sword by a village born commoner could be a source of some great scenes.  Peasants as a rule didn't arm themselves with a noble's weapon.  Swords (not to mention warhorses and good armor) were as much a mark of nobility as a crown and a throne the mark of a king.  Go late enough in the period where armor had pretty much passed chainmail by and you could find lesser troops armed in mail...but even as late as the 19th century a common soldier could be flogged for possessing an officer's sword.

None of which is a good reason to deny such a thing (since a good fantasy adventure typically requires a hero who walks their own path) but I certainly would use it to my advantage in crafting bangs during play.  ESPECIALLY since she made a point of it being a "superior" quality sword, which is practically begging people to notice and pay attention to it.
