Balder isn't the most talkative person, but unlike others it isn't just a matter of not being talkative. This Fera has little to care for, much less any stranger he happens to meet on his way and their pathetic stories. Most might describe him as a cold, brutal individual, but in reality it just takes a lot to impress him. He isn't exactly known for being optimistic and enthusiastic either, but perhaps once you get to know him- or if lucky, even go out on dangerous quests filled with great danger and lives at stake with him, you might come to know he is a loyal fighter to the very core. He will fight for what he believes in, and if your'e his friend you can be sure he will stand by your side till the very end. Much cant be said for his enemies though. He doesn't seem to be very good at showing emotions, or knowing how to handle them. History:
Long ago, the Vidvandre bloodline moved from the warm climates Fera usually reside in to the cold continent of Titus. There their fur thickened and their senses sharpened to fit the ruthless cold. But though gaining these things did them well, they also lost something to the weather. When Balder was born, his family had already grown cold and emotionless. They were hunters and warriors, and wasted no time training the young Fera to become the same thing. This went on much the same it always had, until one day his mother was killed by a fierce beast known only as the Twihorned Daggertooth. It was a giant polar predator, strong enough to take down several men. While out hunting, his pack had met with one of the biggest one there were.
From that day forth, Balder was hellbent on avenging his mother. He trained harder, forgetting the few friends he had in his craze to kill the beast. His father was proud, despite their steadily shrinking contact with each other. Soon he felt himself ready. He set out to kill the beast early in the morning a cold winter day. He had little to no armor and was but armed with a dagger, but after a long battle against the beast and having taken a lot of damage they finally fell- and Balder had won. Little did he know that his fathers heart had stopped the very night he set out. He never even got to say goodbye. He came back to an empty house, only a friend of the family remaining to tell him what had happened. Since that day, he feared that if he ever cared about anyone again they might disappear when he cant help them.
Years passed, and eventually Balder learned to cope with his loss. He did well on his own, living off hunting and selling furs. The carcass of the beast that had technically killed his parents, he dragged back to forge it into his armor. Its fur kept him warm, and the beasts skull on his shoulder to remind him of what had once happened. While living alone he took in a young Greybone wolf pup after accidentally killing its mother without noticing she was with children. His guilt got the best of him, and though raising the young wolf was hard work she proved to be a good companion while hunting as well as a good friend. Now they live under the same roof in his parents house, living off questing and hunting and trying to make the best of what they have. Likes/Dislikes:
