Bio: (Revised some)

Karrak has always been smaller than most of those around him (6’2" 225 pds).
The average Cimmerian is 6’6" to 6’8" & 250 pds plus — He has been underestimated and others have tried to dismiss him – That is – Until they found out what he was made of. He would have none of this & therefore always tried harder than anyone else. His perseverance & grit & stubbornness – forged him the nickname “Stick” among his people – because Karrak would always “Stick with it” & never give up.

Because of his smaller size & ability to move quietly & fit into tight spaces – & hide well – Karrak was soon discovered to be a great scout for his Cimmerian Tribe – The Ember Wolves.

It was one of these long range scouting missions that perhaps saved him from the fate – most of the others of his tribe eventually fell to. One cold winter – The neighboring savage Picts were having a tough time of surviving and getting enough food – so they organized 3 bloodthirsty tribes – The Bloody Claws – The Ripping Fangs – and the Talon Hawks tribes and came down in a surprise attack upon the Ember Wolves tribe.

Karrak was out scouting a cave with a few Hibernating bears in it – that the village was going to attack to get food and other supplies the bears were hoarding. He was not (in his village) there when 2/3rds of his clan were killed. A few escaped and others fled – but hurt and weakened – most were eventually captured by Vanir or Aesir as slaves.

Karrak returned to his village to find it burned to the ground amid – chaos and death. The chieftain of the village was dead – Karrak’s parents were dead – and the few friends he had were dead or missing.

Saddened and furious and in shock — Karrak gathered up what he could of his former village and fled. He kept on moving further and further away from Cimmeria and the Northern realms – eventually finding himself in Shadizar – the city of the wicked. There he began a career as a mercenary and also a thief – and eventually ran into another thief – Enki. Those two became fast friends – They have been friends a long time now over a bunch of different adventures. Karrak considers Enki like a brother now – and Enki is his obvious best friend.
