Chieftain of the Soulripper tribe - Master of Demons



PHYSICALITY

Description
A great hulking figure, muscle bound and sturdy like so many of his kind. Nargash pulls above his brothers strength and stature a giant at roughly 203 cm. Wise, cunning eyes pierce out from beneath the neanderthal forehead. Deep red and filled with dark intentions. Unlike many of his that eschew proper, more civilized clothing he dons a set of loose black and purple garments. Tailored yet seemingly out of place on the massive creature. Vicious tusks jut from the boar-like muzzle and bear the weathered features of well worn tools. Nargash himself bears disconcerting lack of scars and a quite healthy, rather attractive sheen to his unusual dark red flesh. Fiendish black tattoo stripes extend over his hairless scalp and to the nape of his neck.

Manipulation is his first call of attention yet violence is not far beyond. Even he cannot escape fromt the demands of his bestial nature and indulges in bloodletting.

The blade is magical, able to rend flesh more readily then plain steel. It drains the life force of its victim, conveying some of it to bolster Nargash while Teifar feasts upon the rest.


BACKGROUND

Group Affiliation: Nargash cannot avoid running with orcs, as he is a chieftain of the race. He rules his tribe and involves himself in the higher circles of leadership of his kind, brushing shoulders with the great chieftain and other prestigious members of his race. However, his will involve himself with any who will assist his quest for power.

Faction: Grand Union of You

Relatives: Nargash is descended directly from the Soulripper line, yet so have many others in his tribe. He has plentiful relatives among the Soulrippers, relationships with them are nothing notable. His immediate brothers are only seen as his greatest threats and allies.

Blood Pact: Nargash has joined himself with a power being known as Teifar. while not the most manipulative of demons Teifar is no doubt cunning and evil without compunction. He delights in bloodshed, battle and death. He is fueled by the same desire of violence that runs in the veins of the orcs. The alliance is beneficial to both parties and the deal was simple. Teifar provides the orc with great power and protection until the bargain is completed. In return Teifar can feast upon the blood of those killed at Nargash's command and the souls of those struck down by the Fleshdrinker until the blade is destroyed. The final goal of both parties is mutual, the destruction of the God King and Abaddon.

Bio/History: Nargash was born to the chieftain of the Soulripper tribe, Jurgal, from one of his many wives. He was not the stronger nor the weaker of his brothers. His actions did little to invite the attention of his father, not that the attention of the brutal warlord was to be desired. He was raised as a simple warrior among his tribe. Through that time his desire for power grew. Plots had always been a constant companion, since his youth his plans had targeted other members of the tribe for petty thefts, revenge or simple the desire to see them suffer. He always found he could beguile and convince others to assist in his plans. As well as convincingly lay the blame on them if any of his endeavors were rumbled.

With this realization Nargash saw that he could control a tribe much more then with the raw violence his father exploited and so his thoughts turned to power. As he matured, so did his understanding of the specifics of the gaining of power and his horizons grew broader. He searched for ways of forming reality from his desires. He found the route in the shamans of his clan. Little more then hedge warlocks the shamans summoned minor demons and creatures to enchant minor charms and cast minor spells. Nargash attempted to learn their trade and begrudgingly they agreed and taught him of the summoning. It took several years for Nargash to learn what he desired from him. Yet learning more showed to him that a mind as cunning as his could achieve so much more. In the prime of his life he learned of the God King who rose spectacularly to power and now sought to emulate the human's greatness.

Leaving the oppressive restrictions of his tribe Nargash lost himself in the midst of Belholt for many years. Pursuing his own study of the abysmal and eldritch realms. Exploiting his skills at summoning to learn from the denizens of the planes themselves. He grew in knowledge and confidence. Away from civilization for so long with only the company of demons the orc lost a semblance of sanity. With creatures of great power at his beck and call he began to believe himself as invincible and the destruction of the God King he so desired became a very real possibility. He began to fear nothing and withheld little of his energies from his task. While his greatest weakness it was also his greatest strength. Nargash learned of the world beyond his dark refugee from spies summoned and bound to his bidding. He learned of the great power of the God King and vitally, how it was obtained.

His goal within sight Nargash began to search for a creature of power that approached that of The Destroyer and wished to see the great being destroyed. His first quests were failures, fear of Abaddon filled the eldritch creatures. Yet the orc persevered and success was grasped. He brough himself to the attention to Teifar, a violent being who's power began to near that of Abaddon and wish was to destroy the greater being. The pact was sealed, the contract crudely yet accurately carved in obliging rock and signed with blood. The vital step completed and Nargash, imbued with the power of Teifar, emerged from the savagelands to a community much changed.

So begins...
