    Ulric the Bastard

    Ulric the Bastard
    Fighter – Half Elf – Battle Master archetype, 3rd level

    Ulric never knew his father, he barely knew his mother. He was orphaned at an early age and came to the care of a local temple with other orphans. His "half-breed" status was mostly overcome by being able to fight back against any bullying or intimidation. Ulric learned to mistrust the temple priests. He often thought that they were hypocrites. Ulric hated the opulence they had while he and the other orphans barely ate. Ulric became ambivalent towards the gods because of this and his later experiences on the battlefield.

    From his teenage years on, after seeing an army one day, Ulric knew that he could find a new home as a soldier.

    Ulric fought in several wars; he had a perfect sense for war and the military life. He proved himself to his men and to his superiors and was rewarded with promotion.

    ...and then came the day where he was ordered to take his men into an impossible fight by an incompetent commander. Ulric's military sensibilities told him to obey this order, no matter what. He did as he was told.... all but a handful of his men died, those that lived where saved by Ulric's ferocity in defending them as they fell back; as his four wounds attested to. Yet on that day "Ulric the Bastard" became a local hero for his deeds, though he declined any public honors.

    For all of that, he got a commendation and his normal pay/bonus. Ulric also loves a good game of dice... gambling is one of the few things that make him happy.

    After seeing his men cut to pieces, Ulric left the army, with honor. He is utterly disillusioned and life as a mercenary is preferable, and far more profitable.

    He has come to Ugaland seeking his fortune and a large amount of loot.

    Thanks Joe... mad viking now though. I'm about as "Celtic," ethnically speaking, as I am Mongolian. lol

    I'm still undecided about armor though. I'm not thrilled with the Heavy armor rules but I might go with it anyway
