LERR ‘BONEMAN’ LORIL
REALM: Red Mentalism
“One of the very few mortals alive, to have faced a God in melee and survived.”
Born on the northern island of Findon in at the mound of . He grew up a Tanners lad, the youngest of 16 siblings. There was not much work to do. So he spent most of his childhood swimming in the or hiking the hills at the feet of . As he grew older, his travels through the countryside made him see and encounter things that he outran or wore down toe to toe.
Becoming skilled at defending himself, he began venturing along his family’s travels to Andalus, Skelop, and Trevan. As well as Goldar in Midgard and the Free City of Muldum in Markeoy. Even though he learned appraisal and bartering, it was more his towering presence and guard abilities that made him a name for himself. Especially the episode in Free City of Muldum where a T'Aurs got upset that they sold dyed hides and tipped their booth made people notice the youngster. As he simply jumped out of the mess and grabbed the angry T’Aurs by the horn, he yelled, “You’re out of line, sir, and you have to excuse us, but payment is due.” That only made his opponent furious and snorting like a stampeding wild boar; it hit him hard. But, unlike normal Human, Boneman did not go down. Instead, he hit back, and to the surprise of bystanders, he seemingly hit hard. Pummeling fists was his game, and soon the panting T’Aurs sat on its knees. Still in a firm grip, it surrendered and flung its purse at Boneman’s father. “Take what’s required, and please let go of my horn.” The crowd cheered, and soon thereafter, Boneman was sent offers of service from several wealthy merchants and nobles.
It was not long before he realised that the really good spoils and benefits were not in aiding traders but when disputes were to be settled. So, often he took part as a mere guard, securing order, and other times he was in plate armour up front, going ace-to-face with whatever presented itself as the obstacle. Such became his skills that the highest of lords and nobles paid enormous sums to get him on their side. But he also began to join those he liked for free if he liked the cause or disliked the opponents.
One funny story is that the High King Black Oak once lost a fight versus a gargantuan spider demon. And as his Mana was running out, which would have had a fatal outcome, Boneman comes walking around the bend, sees Black Oak in a rather messy state, and is clearly outpowered by the monster. Whistling a merry tune, he started to smash the petty crawlers and rag-tag demons clawing alongside their boss. Which did not notice Boneman until he stepped in between the opponents and said, “Howdy there.” He planted his halberd in its face. The fight tipped from there, and the rather beat-up Black Oak only had to cast shielding and healing on Boneman. The joy was great when the fight was over, as the demon carried a very rare recipe in its bags and they had not seen each other for long.
As the years went on, his reputation grew, and as a new High King was elected, slight ripples of anarchy spread to the lesser islands. In Tusla, some of the population rebelled and beheaded some nobles loyal to The Realm. But they were quickly fought down, under the cunning leadership of Zizu and his acting general, Boneman. So, the various powers of The Realm wanted to calm things down at West Fjella and keep it from happening again. So they offered Boneman to become as it was now a king-less country. He accepted and kept this title all up to the day of The Great Invasion.
On the day of the Great Invasion, he saw Aquerian fly towards Ea but could do nothing. But, when the Mammutan passed his soil on foot, he could and did do something. Alas, there were too many, so eventually the capital, , was overrun.
