Description: Thurdack is a very large individual, not only in height but in girth as well. His wild long hair and general dishevelled look mark him as one of the northern barbarians. With his broad shoulders and barrel chest many stereotype him as un-cultured and ignorant. They would be suprised by his friendly open nature and definitely by his appreciation of music. While completely inept in that area, he loves to listen to bards sing and musicians play. At 19 he is quite young, yet he has had a knack for spell-casting since he was much younger.

Background: Thurdack was born in the Western Heartlands, having grown up on farm in one of the northern fronteir areas. Following a series of mishaps around the farm, he set out from home leaving his family behind. He fell in with some of the Uthgardt who wandered much further south than they had before. They had been tracking a number of orcs down from the mountains far to the north. They welcomed Thurdack into their tribe after a particularily harrowing encounter. Still they trudged on their quest, one of vengence, had not yet been sated.
