  83. Backstory:
  85. The third son of huntsman Griss of the nomadic Mikill minotaur tribe, Thungr was raised a hunter from birth.The males in his tribe had always been large, even by minotaur standards, and Thungr was no exception. By the time he was a young adult, as with both of his brothers, he’d been deemed strong enough to attend his first proper hunt.
  87. On this hunt he learned three things. First was his love for the hunt. Pursuit of prey and its ultimate downfall as exhilarating. Second, not only did he lose himself in it, but he was good at it. Tracking, trapping, and finally moving in for the actual kill all came second nature to him, as it did with most of the males of the Mikill. Third, he learned that beasts were even better at it.
  89. The hunt had a simple goal. Kill a few old and weak members of a migrating herd of mammoth. The first half had gone well. They’d tracked the herd, picked out which animals they planned to pick off, and moved for the kill.
  91. What they hadn’t noticed was they weren’t the only ones after prey. As they moved in, they found themselves between the herd and a massive bear almost as tall as their huntmaster even on all fours. Larger than any bear any of them had ever seen or even heard of, it barrelled out of the woods toward the herd, and, terrified, Thungr threw his spear.
  93. This one action would mark the end of the Mikill tribe. The spear struck the bear in the side and, immediately, it turned its attention from the herd to the hunting party and charged. It barreled into the group, giving a broad swipe with its claws. The bear struck three of them, among which was Griss, and killed them instantly, but the surviving members, including Thungr, quickly regained their composure and surrounded it. After a long, bloody battle, Thungr and half the hunting party remained, and the bear lay on the ground, heaving its final breaths.
  95. Brandishing his spear, Thungr approached to the bear, and she looked up at him with pained, intelligent eyes. “Why have you done this?” he asked. “Why have you killed so many of my tribe?”
  97. Her breath was hollow and wet, and she moved her head just a little more to look him in the eyes. He took a step back as she spoke. “I was defending myself,” she said. “When I saw you I’d intended to let you pass through my land unharmed and allow you to take your spoils. Then you struck me.”
  99. “You were threatening,” Thungr said. “And I am a hunter. It is my job to protect my tribe.”
  101. A breathy, gurgling laugh passed the bear’s muzzle, and she coughed blood. “The storm is threatening, yet you do not toss your spears into the sky. A hunter acts with deliberation. A fool acts in fear.” She closed her eyes. “So be it,” she said. “If fear is what leads your actions, then you shall no longer know great fear. Instead, you will know only bloodthirst and anger.” Finally, she coughed one last time and fell still.
  103. With the herd long gone and half as strong as they had been minutes ago, the hunting party gathered their dead and returned to the tribe empty handed. Days later a nearby tribe descended upon them and, without half of their warriors, Thungr and the other young hunters were forced to try to fight them off. Before the attack the war chief, who wore a bear skin robe, made sure the tribe knew why they were attacking. The bear they had killed, he’d said, was their tribe’s totem animal. Their spirit. Without their spirit, the tribe could no longer live.
  105. As repayment, they were going kill their remaining warriors, take their women and children into their tribe, and, by doing this, would absorb the spirit of the Mikill. Then they descended upon them.
  107. During the battle Thungr was gravely injured and, from his perspective, he’d fallen unconscious. When he’d woken back up, he was tied to a tree, and pieces of corpses from both sides of the battle littered the battlefield, torn apart as if by a wild animal. The rest of the tribe -what remained of it- had packed their tents and belongings and was preparing to leave. Their chief, however, stood in front of him, looking down at him with a mournful expression.
  109. “I do not know what they did to you, but you cannot remain with our tribe,” he said. “You are a bloodthirsty creature, whether inside or outside alone I do not know, and we can count ourselves lucky any remain from either tribe. You are dangerous, but I hold no ill will. Were it not for you, the Mikill would no longer exist, even as the shadow it currently is. From what I understand, however, were it not for you none of this would have happened. I am leaving you a pack with some supplies.” He closed his eyes, ran his fingers across his beard, and turned. Briefly, he glanced back. “I am sorry, Thungr.”
  111. By the time he managed to break free, his tribe was a half day travel away, and even if they were closer he likely wouldn’t have bothered pursuing. Instead, he took the pack, packed some spears, and began to walk.
  113. After years of traveling, surviving alone on the road and only drifting through towns on occasion, he hiked into the mountains to set up a more permanent residence. After a month, he’d built himself a modest hut and has lived there ever since, only coming down to briefly stop in town to trade.
  116. Reason for going after the gem:Thungr heard about the gem while in town, and, while he had made some profit from his furs, he’d never made that much. Most of his money came from the bounties he’d brought back. Beasts terrorizing towns, rare oddities, and the like. He hadn’t had any bounties in several weeks and, upon hearing what it could be worth, took up the job.
