“A mixture of blood… navigator like a god… yet mortal, how odd…”
Born the only child of a Clovincaz father and Ljost Alfar mother, Krokus is one of the very few half-breeds of elven blood. His parents fell in love when his father, the senior captain of a ship wrecked in a storm, washed ashore at a dense forest coast. Where he was found and nursed by the Ljost Alfar.
When he had recovered, he was allowed to stay at their settlement, as he liked being in the rebuilt ruin of an old Clovincaz temple site. Over time, they fell in love, and Krokus was born in the town ofin 1159.
He grew up as a Human, and when he was 13 years old, his father died, 76 years old. It was a huge loss for the kid, as he now was the only human around. And everything spun so slowly due to everyone’s long lifespan. He told me his mother remembered when Ye Olde Zephyrs landed and started to claim land. So, she must be born in F.A., which must be very odd for a kid to grasp. Anyway, it was her stories that eventually made Krokus part with the Ljost Alfar and go to the gates of Ye Olde Zephyrs in 1184. He wanted to hear their side of the old stories, and he was quite surprised that no one lived among them who remembered those times.
Their eldest was a life-leeching Shaman named Kanziganthir. Born in the year 200, he didn’t know about the landfall or initial fights, like the one at . But he had known hundreds of their finest through time and had known several of those in the initial landfall. Many stories, previously untold, reached the ears of young Krokus. It beats me why Kanziganthir did this, but I assume it was due to Krokus being partly Ljost Alfar.
Staying with Ye Olde Zephyrs for several years, he met people like Wilson, Coposim, and Nahita who sparked his interest in . In 1193, he went on a hunt for monsters across the isles. It was 16 years before he once again stood in . A much more mature and skilled fighter, with several odd skins, furs, and beads as trophy’s.
His father’s sailor blood… his mother’s Ljost Alfar eyes… made him a naval god…
So great was his urge to see the world and learn things about humans… that he threw himself at every raid and expedition…
Soon to join the ranks… of upper men with no pranks…
Provisions, routes, reefs, currents, and actions of every man… more than others, he can cope…
Leader of the fleet, he became… ye, accepting that ‘alfar’ was not dum…
Despite him nagging me often… eating Neffi's herbs, my mind would soften…
Becoming the Hordes naval officer, he was the one who ended up in charge of Amras when that young talent joined up. And as I’ve been told, they were the couple behind the improved inspired by my stories about the Outlands. And what a testing of new tryouts for their Horde it became, A great and well-known hero better known for his rage and killing than using the brain even drowned in that test. I had to hoist the fella up and jump life back into that thick chest of his. He came to mumble about faces and secrets in the drink!
Anyway, I shouldn’t speak of such things, as the other part of their test is far more interesting. They built a large inn, theright outside their western gate, and gave it to me. He, always more pleased by being served than serving, ended up handing it to as he proved quite capable of more than peeling potatoes.
Oh well, Krokus sure managed to add a sneaky twist to it all. Axe, torch, and all to progress. Shame he got bored and again left for adventures., which is kind of why I also handed ‘the Hall’ off. Which reminds me that my belly needs another ale.
1230, he left to visit Ytrill’yar, his town of birth, as he heard there was some trouble between his people and some Drakk Alfar. I’m certain it was due to an increased interest in the Astral Site/Gate there, a fact that I think is proven by the fact that when Krokus returned to Grindaa in 1235, he knew a lot about the Astral, Astral Site/Gate, and Drakk Alfar. He even mentioned that the Ljost Alfar knew how to travel south off The Rim.
He spent the next 15 years in the company of Kanziganthir, Lord Nam and several other Smidhrs. And in 1250, when The Realm was born, some people moved to Grimsborg. Krokus left for Mt. Vula. Where he was located when The Great Invasion came.
As half Ljostari, he seemingly inherited some of their longevity.
