Lugah of Lois

Barbarian/Ranger

Lugah was born in a small tribal village called Lois, far from the borders of civilization, in the dense, sprawling forests known to most only as “The Northlands”. Touched somehow by the power of the fey, he was an outcast among his people, who feared and shunned him despite the fact that, as far as he could determine, the only thing this heritage meant was that he could be burned by any touch of cold iron! His only ally was an old woman named Guyia, who continued to raise him after his mother died and who would leave food and gifts for him outside her small hut even after he was cast out of the village. He was making the best of his life that he could, living on the fringes of his one-time home, when fate finally intervened…

How Lugah’s adventures began:

You’ve gotten pretty good at slipping into and out of Lios over the last couple of years. This is not arrogance, only simple truth. You’ve thought often of what might happen if you were caught and you’ve planned a number of contingencies against the possibility so you were prepared if it happened. You thought you were prepared, at least. When Guyia’s door opened as you approached you thought at first that she must have had some message for you…

What shocked you the most, the sight of one of the village elders stepping out of the door instead, or of the two men pushing him ahead of them (from his expression things were clearly not going well for old Cyenn), or of the sight of the old woman laying on the floor in a pool of blood (a sight that stunned you despite the fact you caught only a glimpse just before the door swung shut) you couldn’t say.

The rage swelled within you before you even had taken it all in. You were going to kill these men for what they had…

…you didn’t really feel the club hit the back of your head, you were only able to register a dim awareness of it as the darkness swelled in your vision. Your last thought was of poor, sweet Guyia lying there…
