At birth the shamans told his mother Shafeera that he was marked marked by the old gods. At birth his face was adorned with claw marks of unknown origin taking this as a sign the great hunter Sadarach took him as a student of the hunt.
Over the Years Radanach changed the once social and playful child was gone in his place Radanach took on a new visage. His days at hunt grew longer and longer he slaughtered animals in massive numbers with relative ease He would lay in the grass motionless then disembowel them when they came close. He almost never returned home the only time he did is when he brought home his kills.
As years progressed Sadarach grew fearful for his now heartless apprentice one day he followed him out on hunt Radanach knew he was being followed years of hunting had fine tuned his senses. Instead of continuing on the hunt he took off a a dead sprint into the thick under brush.
Sadarach followed in pursuit but soon lost the trail sadarach searched for Radanach but was unable to find him in a small clearing he froze he now had a feeling he had felt many times before something was hunting him.
Sadarach called out to Radanach warning him of a near by predator but there was no answer . Sadarach Rounded a patch of trees to find a body it appeared to be a small deer mangled beyond recognition Sadarach knelt and examined the body what predator could rip it apart like this examining the wound his mind froze no claw made this clean a cut only an axe could so easily sever the spine. A loud snap issued forth from his neck as he was struck from behind it broke his neck killing him instantly that was the moment the hunter had become the hunted.
Sadarach was never seen again Radanach returned from his hunt dumped his kills then left again.
Over the next 2 years seven hunters would go missing no bodies no trace.
The council elders hired hunters to pursue the beast and kill it they also asked Radanach if he would aid them in their hunt but he refused stating "Prey do not hunt hunters" on that note he once again plunged into the underbrush.
Night fell the hunter camp was silent they slept in a circle Bows at the ready arrows knocked with a high pitched whistle Radanach awoke the hunters they jumped up and pointe their bows in his direction.
"Relax my brothers" Radanach said "I have come to aid you in your hunt" the hunters relaxed and welcomed the presence of an experienced hunter.
Slowly Radanach led them through the under brush the occasional snap of a twig was the only sign of their movement.
Radanach motioned for the others to stay in their positions he then vanished into the bushes.
Minutes passed and still no sign of Radanach the lead hunter walked forward towards the bushes all he heard was the faint breath of something on the other side. He reached to push aside a branch when he heard another hunter scream he whirled around bow at the ready there stood a massive dog over waist height with long jagged fangs he loused an arrow it hit the beast and bonuced off harmlessly.
In a panic the hunter lunged into the underbrush the screams of his fellow hunters marking their deaths. he ran as fast as he could he heard the beast closing in then his footing was gone he fell downward into a dank cave. He hit the stone floor hard breaking one of his legs he lay there trying to silence his screams.
He looked a t the hole far above "well at least it cant get to me" he thought then started making a torch within a few minutes he had made a torch he attempted to stand but fell andd rolled down a small incline hitting the bottom he land on something pulling the torch around he looked at the at the floor and walls and his heart stopped human bodies adorned the floor each bloodier than the last each horribly mauled.
He turned and attempted to run but as he did an axe blade decapitated him his body hung in motion for a moment then collapsed Radanach lifted his his skull and place it upon a large stone slab with all the others the large dog walked up along side him nuzzling against his leg Radanach patted the creture then sent him away kneeling at the altar he spoke "Hircine I have done as you asked now please remove the endless blood lust that corrupts my soul" all was silent a moment then hircine spoke "You have proven yourself Radanach there is not a creature on nirn that would underestimate you but the blood lust you experience makes you strong it is what drives you to hunt and hunt you shall for the rest of your days" hircinces voice faded into nothing.
"Come back Hircine I am not yet finished with you" Radanach screamed no reply. "fine Hircine if you wish me to hunt hunt I shall I will hunt down every last one of your followers and desecrate every last one of your miserable shrines" That night Radanach left the reach bound for High rock hound at his side.

Later that same year he was accepted into the army so that he might saint his blood lust while on his endless quest To destroy the followers of Hircine.

Epilogue: Radanach would fail at his quest for as long as there is prey there are hunters and as long as there are hunters Hircine will be pleased old age stopped his vengance he would never return to the Reach again he would live out the rest of his life with his war hound as his only companion he would ultimately become at one with nature and would try to protect it vowing never to use the craft of hircine again.
Radanach died in his sleep at the age of 65 his dog Buck died later that same day lying at his masters side in the end Radanach won in giving up hunting Radanach denied the lord of the hunt his greatest desire to see Radanach become the greatest hunter the world had ever seen.

i liked the story, pretty massive though :P this is only the bio there is another forum section for character stories. i would keep his backstory short and sweet and copy and paste this one to 'the library' section, as huge as this bio is there is still alot missing. i would start with his name at the top, sex, occupation and faction (if you can think of any more add them on!). you were on to something when you wrote fighting style :D instead put what you have written next to fighting style in a section named equipment and in fighting style you have creative freedom! does he fight dirty? does he try to overwhelm his opponent? appearance, best memory and worst memory would ad depth to this character.

now you have talked a lot about his strengths but what about his weaknesses, you have talked about a social one (the fact that he is a werewolf), you have hinted at an emotional one but i feel every character needs a physical weakness. is he weak in human form? is he slow? Most importantly ad a section challenges for your character! i don't know why people skip this part :P
basically what challenges is your character going to face? (this kind of fits in with weaknesses). one is pretty clear, the fact that he is suffering from the blood lust that would be a social problem, now think of an emotional and physical and how these aspects are going to hinder him from achieving his final goal.

over all a good story, nice to see someone struggle from the blood lust and not be in full control, but one last thing, i would have this character (or even hint him in being) the champion of a daedric prince. the reason being is because there will be thousands of people doing the same, by all means have him cursed by the prince because that is a pretty major part but i don't like the sound that hircine had a plan of making your character the greatest hunter ever. but hey that just me.

i enjoyed reading this and am looking forward to seeing your character grow and develop
