Birth of the heart racer.

Lurgahk was born into a family of wanderers. His mother was exiled from the stronghold of Zaardin. His mother's name was Lokra, and she had already had a daughter named Roshova, with the chieftan. However, Lokra had fallen in love with another resident of the stronghold named, Ugrosba. Their love affair was discovered and the chieftan forced Ugrosba to suffer the blood price until death. The chieftan, still enraged, exiled Roshova, and Lokra while she was unknowingly pregnant with Ugrosba's son. Eight and a half months later, Lokra gave birth to her son Lurgahk, by the waters near Northpoint in High Rock.

Lokra wandered the region of High Rock with her little ones for 17 years. By this time, Roshova would have already been sent off to marry another stronghold's chieftan, and her son Lurgahk would be training to surpass his father. Lokra cared much for her children, and told them stories of her time in Zaardin. She would speak to them about the great Daedric Prince Malacath, the very first orsimer of their kind. She indeed told them about the Code of Malacath, and told them to follow it to the letter. However, Lokra herself was forced to resort to petty thievery and pickpocketing in order to keep her family alive. Her children were aware of this but said nothing, for fear of upsetting their mother.

Eventually, they came across an orsimer traveler that went by the name Utoru. Utoru left his stronghold three years prior, in search of wealth and adventure, and so far he had found neither. He wished to return to his stronghold, but he could not go back simply because his quest had failed. Utoru origionally offered to take Roshova off their hands for the price of a few hundred gold pieces, his plan was to take Roshova back to his stronghold of Vorguu to marry their chieftan, hoping that would serve as pennance for his departure.

Lurgahk wished to travel with the two so that they may call Vorguu their new home. Unfortunately, Lokra knew that she was too old to bear anymore children, and thus had no purpose any longer. She'd known this for sometime now. She sent Lurgahk and Roshova off with Utoru so that they may make this stronghold their own.

The seperation from his mother appeared to be too traumatic for Lurgahk, as once he arrived at Vorguu, he began resulting to thievery in the stronghold and was caught in the act numerous times, and Lurgahk was faced with the blood price several times over. He did this origionally, because it subconciously reminded him of his mother. Eventually the young orsimer realized that he thoroughly enjoyed the risks that he would take, and he loved the adrenaline that coursed through his veins when he would grab a sheathed blade near the forge and quickly stuff it in his pocket. Eventually, after six years, Vorguu's chieftan had had enough of Lurgahk's ignorance, and exiled him for his repeated crimes against the Code of Malacath.

Over the years, Lurgahk began to cope with the loss of his mother and now his sister, but he never stopped his thieving ways, as his thirst for adrenaline and excitement would never wane. Ever since his exile, the orsimer resided in the city of Daggerfall, located in the southwest of High Rock. By day, he accomplished mediocre tasks for its residents, and by night, he would go off on adventures outside of the city's walls.

Lurgahk made his way to the local tavern, just returning from a midnight sweep. He set a sack of gold down on the counter, intending to drown himself in ale until he falls asleep. He turned his head to a notice on the wall from the Breton's High King...

"Call to Arms!
Our supplies dwindle. Our trade routes are shut down. Our people suffer. Why? Because a pretender sits upon the Ruby Throne. Let us take up arms! Let the fields of Cyrodiil run red with the blood of our fallen enemies! But let us spare the lives of a few, so that they may return to their homelands to tell their fellows the fate they met at the hands of the Daggerfall Covenant. One land! One Emperor! Who among you will stand with me?
-Emeric High King"

Lurgahk grunted. "Hmph."

pretty good but I'm not sure about the stuffing a sword in his pocket part, I know it works in Skyrim but still...
