I haven't touched this since the 20th of November so I thought i'd finally finish it! This is a character that is quite dear to my heart, so, hear it goes...


Firstname - Gargish



Surname- Gro Khalok



title - The Wordsmith/The Mountain



Sex - male



Race - orc



Age - 34



Occupation - When he's normal, he's an accomplished bard and poet. He has an amazing way with words and can bring an epic tale to life with his calm, deep voice which can sooth the fiercest of beasts.



Appearance - At 7 feet and 7 inches he is massive. That's of course the feature that conceived his nickname "The Mountain". His body is covered in giant intimidating muscles that often scare away many around him. His pale green skin is also laced with brutal scars and burns from his time as a slave/torture puppet and from his 'incidents'. Gargish has long black hair in the orcish style, accompanied by a short bushy beard and deep brown eyes. He also has massive tusks protruding from his jaw. His voice is deep and soothing but can snap into a twisted, crazy voice of pain, suffering and violence.



Personality - The main part of Gargish is that he is basically two people. Well, not exactly. He has multiple personality disorder. This is due to being abused and tortured as a slave. His first personality is 'The Wordsmith'. He is a very calm, and collected person with an amazing voice and way with words. He is very kind, gentle and intelligent so he definitely goes against the typical orcish stereotype. The name "Wordsmith" comes from the fact that his people are famous armour and weapon smiths. He is very peaceful and dedicated to bringing joy to other people's lives.

His other side, "He", is a psychopathic monster of evil, suffering and death. He is extremely violent and will kill most in his way. His methods are of pure savagery, he will: claw, rip, bite, slice, stab, cut ,maim, tear, shred, skin and pulverise anything at his own will. He is usually in a state of complete bloodlust however on some occasions he won't be rampaging. Rather he will be plotting about rampaging and murdering but lucky for some he can be tamed for a while. 'He' is extremely easy to be sent into a frenzy, just saying 'hello' can send him into a trance of murder and destruction. When he's not in one of his trances he somehow retains his way with words. They're just more morbid, gruesome and threatening words. 'He' completely ignores pain, therefore he is able to let his body go through extreme conditions which of course is a double edged sword.



Social Background/Backstory - Gargish was born near Blacklight as a city orc however, due to a complication his mother was killed during childbirth. Now his father, a poor miner, was stuck with a demanding child. During Gargish's early childhood his father had some help from family friends to raise Gargish however the pressure was still very much on his father. To make things worse, his father resented Gargish for his wife's death and became an alcoholic because of it. By the age of 7 Gargish was clearly a strange orc, he was much taller than every child of his age which singled him out even more than for just being an orc in the strange land of morrowind. His father constantly greeted him with fits of drunken rage, making him a troubled child. Gargish had to beg and do work for any who would take him just to help him and his dad get by but it wasn't enough for his father... It was never enough...

When Gargish reached his teens he was truly a giant, 6 feet 6 inches tall and still growing. However due to this gigantism he began to feel aching in his joints when doing a lot of exercise. He didn't let this stop him however, he was determined to raise enough money to travel to skyrim and follow his dreams of becoming a bard. However his father didn't approve of this, and he let him know it, even more frequent beatings took place to show him how "Being a bloody entertainer doesn't put food on the fuckin' table!" Despite Gargish being taller than his father he wouldn't fight back, violence wasn't in his nature... However he began to get random fits of anger, albeit rare ones. At the age of 17 Gargish had just enough money to get him out of his house and away from his father's savage grip. However one day when he came home he found his father, dead, lying in a pool of vomit with empty bottles surrounding him. This was sad for Gargish but it also meant the beginning of a new life for him, he took the inheritance, sold the house and travelled to Skyrim...

After a long journey Gargish finally arrived at the bards college, he hadn't enough money to buy a house but he had enough to keep him alive for quite a while. After a long gauntlet of trying to be accepted into the college he was. He was granted a room there and over the coming years he learned the skills to become a great bard and poet. He rose to town wide fame in Solitude before heading out into the world to travel and become a famous and beloved bard. Gargish travelled from village to village, town to town trying to bring cheer to all in Skyrim. He travelled so much he even met Jorunn Skald King for a very short conversation. This was by far the most peaceful and serene time in Gargish's lifetime, his angry fits had started to recede and memories of his abusive father faded into the darkest recesses of his mind. Through his travels he ended up returning to his home, it was a baron waste, crumbling walls and smashed doors defined how badly this place fell into disuse. Clearly the ones who bought it from Gargish didn't want it. Despite its emptiness he found a peaceful place, a much better place than when he was there last. With this, closure, from his old life he decided he would travel Morrowind to spread his passion for poetry. However, a depraved gang of skooma crazed bandits managed to find the courage to capture this 7 foot wall of muscle and sell him into slavery...

Gargish spent 3 years of his life in slavery. When he was first sold as a slave he was 23. The slave master was a sadistic bastard that reminded Gargish of his abusive father. This master was a leader of an infamous bandit clan that terrorized the roads of Morrowind and inserted fear into every travelers life. The authorities spent many years trying to put a stop to these criminals but the bandits were always one step ahead. Some say that the leader was a daedra worshipper that brought pain upon his victims to please his Daedric master, Molag Bal. Gargish didn't know however, all he knew was pain. Day in and day out the master would beat, cut and burn Gargish just because he could. Gargish suffered torn off skin, ripped muscles, broken bones and 3rd degree burns throughout these years. The pain was too much for him, he couldn't keep track of what went on around him, he wasn't even conscious when he was finally rescued by the fighters guild...

Gargish awoke after a week of being in a coma, in a temple in Tear. He was being looked after by priests of the Tribunal, funny how these xenophobic dunmer were now the ones that were caring for him out of the kindness of their hearts. It took a very long time to recover from his torture, however the scars and burns still haunt him today. But there is something else that is the worst thing of them all, a monster that was forged in Gargish's suffering. 'Him'. Although he isn't aware of it, this other side has been with him since the abusive days with his father. It originated as his wild fits of anger, the torture nurtured this repressed side until his sanity couldn't hold it any longer. 'He' is the manifestation of everything evil in the world. 'He' went on to travel alongside Gargish, bringing death wherever he wanted to preform his poems. Gargish is now wanted throughout all the land of the Ebonheart pact and Elsweyr for crimes that Gargish just doesn't want to know of. The worst part about living with 'him' is the ambiguity of it. Gargish will never truly know the atrocities 'he' has committed, knowing only that his very hands did the terrible deeds. He has struggled a long time with depression and tried multiple times to kill himself but just couldn't bring himself to do it. Now he roams High Rock, hoping that he can over come this other side.



Best Memory - When Gargish was finally accepted into the Bards College where he learned to weave beautiful images into his listener's minds just with the power of his voice.



Worst Memory - Discovering the existence of 'him' for the first time and realizing that many would suffer by 'his' hands.



Skills - Gargish is a great poet and bard, with a true gift for weaving great tales. Being a bard means he is a great lute player. 'He' on the other hand has no style what so ever, 'he' just kills. 'He' uses anything he can get his hands on to kill with, thus is not an expert with any weapon.



Birthsign - He was born under the sign of the serpent



Religious Views - Gargish has been through too much to believe in ay kind of god. Why should he worship divines who do nothing but watch the suffering that goes on in nirn?! He would very much love to believe, but he has no faith in anything anymore.
