Viggo Grimmor

Race: Human
Gender: Male
Age: 20
Birthday: 32, Summer, 499
Birthplace: Syliras

Viggo is a wiry man, and slightly below average height. His face is usually concealed by the shadow of his cowl, his green eyes often being the only indication of the person within. When his hood is down though, Viggo is revealed to have messy black hair and a strong jaw adorned with a light beard.

Viggo almost always has his hood up, keeping his face masked and creating a mysterious aura around him. The cloak he wears is often wrapped around his upper body, and he typically wears either a brown or dark green undershirt. His leggings are also typically a dark brown color.

Viggo has not been left unscarred by the adversity life has thrown his way. A claw scar runs down the length of his left arm, and a bite adorns the same hand. Three claw marks are carved into his chest, and a light but long scar cuts his right leg. His right wrist is often covered by a strip of cloth, concealing a scar from a crossbow bolt during his fight with Bellatrix Delthar.

Character Development
Viggo is a man who has largely been shaped by his mentor and his adversity. His mentor taught Viggo the value of justice, freedom, and equality. However, Viggo also learned that doing the right thing doesn't always mean going about it in an honorable manner. If he truly believes his cause is just, then Viggo is not above bending a few rules to get the job done. Despite his methods, Viggo does not often try to force his views on others.

Viggo is largely an egalitarian, not holding many prejudices against any race or people. While he projects an aura of mystery, those who get to know him will see a man who has a number of vulnerabilities and trust issues. Most of these issues were brought about by conflict with the Night Eyes, against whom Viggo holds an immense anger.

The adversity and anger with the Night Eyes, and Bellatrix Delthar in particular, has shaped much of Viggo’s character recently. He is slow to trust others due to her betrayal, preferring to remain unobtrusive in the shadows or the back of the room. He also holds a holds a great deal of doubt about regaining his skills since the betrayal. Most of all Viggo fears that he will never be able to truly move past the terrible scars left on his heart.

As a result of the events surrounding Bellatrix’s betrayal, Viggo has suffered in many performance areas he previously excelled in. Of particular note is archery, a skill which Viggo has lost a great deal off due to the injury to his dominant wrist, along with a number of mental barriers.

Character History
Viggo was born in the city of Syliras to Katherine and Duvar Grimmor. Duvar was a carver, and Katherine was a largely a stay at home mother who did some weaving work. For the first 16 years of his life, Viggo grew up in the city. He took some interest in his father's work, combining the carving with his own passion for archery and arrow making. Even at a young age, Viggo was adventurous, often trying to sneak out into the wild lands. His father would sometimes take him for a day or two, but the teenager was never quite satisfied with such small outings.

In the summer of 516, shortly after Viggo turned 17, his family's financial situation fell on hard times. His father was forced to close up shop, and his mother was not able to support the family with her limited skills. Thus, the family was forced to move to Sunberth in hopes of finding work there.

It was during the trip to Sunberth that Viggo would meet his mentor. Brom Kent was a master woodsman who lived in the wild and on the outskirts of Sunberth. When Viggo and his family were traveling, they were attacked by wolves. Before any harm befell the family, the woodsman arrived, killing the creatures with his bow and escorting the family to the city. Viggo was fascinated with the man, and set out to find him shortly after the family settled in Sunberth’s Riverside district. Although Brom berated Viggo for his foolish venture into the woods, the woodsman took a liking to Viggo’s spirit and allowed the young man to be his apprentice.

For the next two years Viggo would learn a number of skills from Brom, from survival to archery to observance. Brom would also introduce Viggo to flux magic. The two men would often take Mercenary and Bounty Hunter jobs, hunting down criminals and escorting caravans through the wilds. Viggo was beyond thrilled about finally being able to nurture his adventurous nature. And though Brom was a stern master, the man clearly cared deeply about his apprentice. Despite the hostility his family faced due to being outsiders in Sunberth, Viggo was the happiest he had ever been.

The hostility however, reached a breaking point soon enough. Duvar had opened a carving business upon arriving in Sunberth, and while he could have enjoyed a great deal of success, the man was well aware of Sunberth’s issues with outsiders. Thus, Duvar had kept his business restricted, making just enough to provide for the family. In the fall of 518 however, Duvar could not resist the temptation to expand. Almost immediately his business enjoyed great success, and Duvar suddenly found himself as a target of the Night Eyes gang. The Night Eyes, not wanting to see an outsider have such success, attempted to have Duvar killed. Brom happened to be in the right place at the right time, managing to save Duvar, though he suffered a grievous wound in the process.

Concerned about the possibility of Duvar's business continuing to expand in their territory and knowing the businessman was well protected, the Night Eyes upped the ante. A cunning, drawn out plan to bring the man down was created, with Viggo being in the center. Bellatrix Delthar, an agent of the Night Eyes who was around Viggo’s age, was ordered to seduce the young man and obtain what information she could. Viggo met her in the Winter of 518, and was instantly enamored.

Over the following Spring, Bellatrix continued to play Viggo along in a fake relationship, all the while gathering information on Duvar and Brom. Near the end of Spring, the trap was sprung. Bellatrix and other Night Eyes agents burned his family's house to the ground, killing his parents in the blaze. Viggo, swearing revenge, went after them, much to Brom’s dismay. Viggo confronted Bellatrix, and during the confrontation she shot him in the right wrist with a crossbow, preventing him from wielding his bow. Before she could finish him off however, Brom arrived, sacrificing himself and giving Viggo time to escape.

Wracked with grief and guilt, Viggo would flee into the wilds. He would live in the forests around Sunberth for the first two weeks of Summer before realizing he was in no condition to stay there much. Having not traveled far, Viggo would return and lay low in the outskirts of Sunberth.
