Barbaryk Barefang
« on: November 03, 2019, 02:17:41 PM »
Name: Barbaryk Barefang
Alias: Ryk
Rank: New Blood

Age: 21
Gender: Male
Race: Mag'har
Clan: Laughing Skull
Class: Predator (Shaman with a bow)
Alignment: Chaotic good

Family: Ghata Grimsong(father, deceased), Ahila Poisontongue(Mother) Vahu( ghost guardian)
Known Friends:
Known Enemies:

Body covered with ritual markings with leather armor adorned with different skulls and spikes(hidden daggers). Wears a Laughing skull helmet. Apart from his eyes, everything else looks like an average orc. Despite being a Laughing skull, he has almost zero wound or cut mark. Most of the time he carries a weird looking carapace-bow. Weird that nobody ever remembered him without his mask.

Hard to tell because  although he appears as quirky and somewhat idiot, something in his voice hints otherwise. He is quick to change sides when things are rough and has no shame to be called traitor or something else because he knows at the end of the day survival matters the most. He does not like to stay in the Power circle but prefers to be the shadow of the center.

Spoiler: show

His history is mostly unknown except the version he tells people which summarizes as follows:
Barbaryk was the eldest son of Ghata Grimsong and Ahila Poisontongue. During peacetime, he was sent to Draenei school. Being a Laughing  skull and due to his family history(his parents fought against the Iron horde), he was always skeptical of  Grommash's leadership and how most of the Iron horde's crimes were overlooked in the name of bringing peace.
 Apart from general training, he received his father's guidance in shamanism. Seeing his potential, Ghata trained him with all he knew, all the knowledge of his forefathers. But he was not satisfied. He remembered how he was alone, running and hiding from the Iron horde. He wanted to do more than just teaching, he wanted to protect his son forever.
So, He took Barbaryk to a perilous journey to Nagrand, from the Throne of the Elements to Oshugun to the Ancestral grounds. They prayed for days, performed rituals known only to a few practitioner of ancient shamanism. Finally, Ghata sent his son to find something with which he might feel connected. After seven nights, Barbaryk returned with a weird looking skeleton of a dismembered paw. Ghata prepared a feast that night and after that he stabbed his son with a crude dagger made from that paw right where his heart was. Though it was a non fatal attack and Barbaryk knew about that, he was not aware of its purpose. It took a week to recover and then they returned home. After three week, Ghata died. It was during his omriggor Barbaryk found the purpose of the ritual. Ghata willingly bound a part of his spirit to him as his protector and spiritual conduit. He will always be with his son.
Barbaryk finished his omriggor and returned with a dismembered  giant wasp , tore open by his teeth. He was named Barefang by the elders. Ahila handed him a bow made out of the carapace. He fought against the Botani for a long time which enriched him with knowledge about them and even some tricks of survival in adverse conditions.
 Then came the war with the Light fanatics. Barbaryk's knowledge on Draenei proved useful but he was deeply disturbed with this war. Not only he had to work under Grommash's orders, but also he had to fight against his old friends.  Even his ghost guardian was uneasy with the whole situation. So when the time rift opened, he wasted no time to grab his family and run to azeroth. He promptly left his old warband, signed contract with a expedition and tracking  company and sought out a clan where he can live at his own terms.

Things you may know about this character:
He is from Laughing Skull clan.
He is good with ranged weapons, but also carries daggers if needed.
He has great interest in engineering and geology.

He has a contract with Brightpurse Incorporated as explorer and tracker. The company helped his family to build a beast farm where he tames and trains animals for himself and customers who likes to have pets without the hassle of taming or training. He also takes bounty offers except those involve slaves or children.

Things you may not know about this character:
Spoiler: show

All knowledge about him is probably fake as nobody has seen his family since Mag'har came to Azeroth.
He is well aware of shamanistic rituals and practices.
His carapace-bow has a hidden poison sack with coating facility.
He has a ghost guardian(an amalgamation of his father's protective spirit and the lingering spirit essence of an unknown beast. It does not always show itself except when he is in dire need of counsel and physical protection. People  with strong spiritual connection can sense it walking beside him. It generally takes form of an animal. He calls him Bahu)
He hates Grommash and once thought of assassinating him, but he could never reach to him. He did killed a certain blackrock orc during a scouting mission in  Talador.
His  quirky and idiotic attitude is actually a veil. He is brutal than most other orcs when time comes.
