Firstname-Thorvald

Surname-Hammer-hand

Title-was nicknamed iron fist

Sex-Male

Race-Nord

Age-32

Occupation-Adventurer

Faction-Ebonheart Pact,Companions

Appearance-Standing 6'5 1/2 and muscle-bound he is a giant among men even his kinsman with long straw coloured hair flowed in a mane behind his ears with two braids draped over his shoulders. He has frost-blue ancient Nordic tattoos covering his tough skin and broad shoulders and back. His eyebrows are great and bushy matching his beard and moustache that resemble those of one of Skyrim's giants in appearance and size. His hands and feet are very large and rough from swinging axes, raising shields and the harsh environment of Skyrim. His features are permanently stained with dirt and frost from his travels through the wilderness and he has picked up no small amount of scars and other marks of battle. His voice sounds like thunder though it can be quite clear that it's usually accompanied by a merry tone.

Equipment- Thorvald's armour consists mainly of traditional Nordic steel and Quicksilver crafted ancient Nordic in style with carvings of the same culture engraved all over the metal and two rams horns attached to the helmet. His weapons of choice are two single-bladed war axes on either hip with a great double-bladed battle axe strapped across his back, all three weapons carved with Nordic design and a rather large hunting knife that he keeps strapped to his thigh. He covers himself in furs of bear, wolf, sabercat and mammoth that he wears on top of his armour and under it along with several ornaments and trophies like necklaces made from ivory and teeth and claws from the beasts he has slain. He also sometimes carries a spear and sword made from the same metal and carved like all his other equipment, the sword is a combination longsword and broadsword. His belt is a great band of leather with metal studs and a large carved metal plate in the front with several gems studded into it.

Personality-impatient and extremely stubborn his opinion is not easily changed and never seems to stay in one place for too long though these are more racial traits and wanderlust. He hides it well but he has a great fear of undead and giant spiders/scorpions due to early trauma and constantly doubts himself and is very unsure of himself, as a result he constantly strives to test himself in combat and never wants to fail.

Backstory-Born and raised in Windhelm Thorvald was born to a family of renowned warriors since he was 5 he was trained to fight for honor and glory and showed promise in these aspects and at age sixteen completed kyn's trials of hunting and killed his first ice-wraith as were traditions in the family. However shortly after the completion of of this he ventured to a tomb and his curiosity overcame him and he entered an ancient nordic crypt unfortunately he was unaware that it was full of a necromancer cult and was overwhelmed by their magic and taken as a test subject. during the months he spent there he saw unspeakable horrors performed by the necromancers, men turned inside-out their flesh melting, and grotesque beasts of mangled flesh and bone roaming the halls and giant vile spiders and scorpions picking at the corpses. Several months later he was set free by an incredible stroke of luck, the Companions of Whiterun had apparently been hired to clear the necromancers out and he was set free, upon seeing their skill as warriors Thorvald asked to accompany them back and join them partly out of a sense of adventure and wanting to become as great a warrior and partly out of shame of facing his family after failing to escape on his own and blindly walking into a crypt he knew he shouldn't have disturbed from that moment on he vowed never to fail again and never be that foolish again but constantly remembers his failure. He did join the companions and became a great warrior under their teaching but received a job in windhelm to settle a dispute while in the city he hoped to avoid contact with his family but couldn't resist his father scolded him for his foolishness but praised him for his acceptance into the companions and skill as a warrior and gave him the family's ancestral armor and weapons passed down from generation to generation and he has worn that equipment ever since. he earned the title iron fist in a tavern brawl when the other man challenged him he couldn't resist but had a few to many ales and struggled to remove his gauntlets and the other man punched him in the jaw, seeing this as breaking a rule Thorvald swung back with his steel gauntlet still on and broke the mans nose and toppled him over in a single punch. when the war broke out he couldn't resist a fight and joined up with the pact and fights on the front lines.

best memory-completing the trials of kyn and slaying the ice wraith.

Worst memory-his imprisonment by the necromancers.

skills-skilled with an axe of any sort and with a crossbow and his heavy armour.

Challenges-Overcoming his self doubt his a huge challenge for him as well as fighting against the lord of necromancers Mannimarco and his undead legions.

Birthsign-Warrior

Political views-believes the pact is looking at the bigger picture of the threat of Molag-Bal and Mannimarco more than a petty political fight against the "pretender" empress.

Religous views-follows the old norse pantheon.

Other - He has two armoured ice-wolf/husky companions named Fenrir and Ornlu that he found as puppies in a cave after he killed their mother not realizing she had offspring. Thorvald also has two black ravens that he won in a hunting contest named Hugin and Munin that now serve as messengers and valued companions to him. His grandfather was a member of the Bromlokiir clan and Thorvald now seeks to follow in his footsteps by joining the clan and bringing further honour to his family name.

The wolves/husky's are references too, Fenrir and Ornlu the former of which is from Norse mythology as well and the latter is from the AoE series. I would've done Odin's two wolves from Norse mythology seeing as the ravens are also Odin's but their names didn't come as fluently.
