Dark Sun, The Scorched World of Athas
Mul Thunderborn Barbarian
Morg is a Mul, which is a half-dwarf – a race that combines the adaptability of humans with the toughness of dwarves. Most are born into slavery. Rippling with muscle and with hairless skin toughened by the months spent wandering the Ivory Triangle, Morg bears the cruel scars of his oppressive former life all across his back, chest, and face. He keeps his massive greataxe in a special harness across his back when not in use. A stone handaxe rests at his hip. He has had a suit of armor fashioned from the hide of a tembo and wears it with pride.
Born into a life of servitude int he forest city of Gulg, Morg toiled as a laborer until he was sold to a cruel merchant who also had a weakness for gambling on gladiatorial matches. Impressed with his physical prowess and bored with constantly beating him for imagined shortcomings, he had Morg trained as a gladiator to fight in the local arenas. Little did he know that training him for battle would spell his demise. One night, after watching him beat servant after servant, Morg took matters into his own hands and he cut his merchant-master’s throat while he slept. Fleeing the city and certain reprisal for his actions, he made his way into the Ringing Mountains, where he encountered other vagabonds living in exile from civilization.
Morg has had many adventures, in which he…
- helped save Arisphistaneles, the governor of Altaruk and member of the Veiled Alliance, from an assassination attempt by the True cabal.
- helped stop the infamous Wastewalker from continuing his homicidal campaign against all arcane spell casters.
- helped to discover the Lost Cistern of Aravek to secure a new source of water for Tyr and it’s army.
- helped defeat the defiler Yarnath the Skull and recover the Crown of Dust from his fortress Slither.
