Brandt is the son of Oluff the Tall, an Ulfen in service to the Aldori family of Lord Hiemerr. Oluff saw that his son learned much about his homeland, and about his father's land. Brandt learned to hunt alongside his father in service to the Hiemerr lands. Oluff also made sure his son was capable as a seaman, even if Lake Encarthian was a long way from the Rostland where he grew up.
Brandt was always enthralled of the stories of the lands where kingship was dictated by thrilling battles with linnorms, of where hags and trolls attempted to thwart the work of heroes, where men sail in service to themselves on great adventure. Oluff always blushed over the rougher parts of his Ulfen past that caused him to flee to Brevoy in the first place.
Brandt showed skill in the traditional arts of a woodsman with his father's tutelage. He also has some ability at nautical navigation, although would easily give way to more experienced hands. His time on ships was very limited to some days on Lake Encarthian, not the open seas.
Brandt has grown into a young man who shows the characteristics of his father's land. He is on the larger end of height, and is broad across the shoulders. He eschews the long hair and braids of his father's people, but wears a full beard like his father before him. His blond hair is customarily short, and his green eyes continually seem restless.
Brandt has an easy way, and prefers to be in the company of folks who are less refined, although he knows enough in polite company not to speak unless spoken to. He does enjoy travelling in the woods, and hunting, although he prefers hunting himself, rather than using hounds and beaters for nobility hunters.
When given the chance to head to the Stolen lands as an opportunity for him to strike out on his own, Brandt jumped at the chance and fins himself on his way toward a new life. His time in the stolen lands hasn't been as heroic as he thought, occasionally skirmishing with bandits, and helping protect the odd farmer's cattle from raiders. Certainly no trolls, hags or linnorms to wrestle with thus far.
Then he started hearing rumors of the bandits being controlled by a near legendary being, and of the heroes who vanquished him. What potential do these others hold in the Stolen Lands, what do they want with this territory? Would they be scoundrels like the others he'd crossed blades with in the wilderness, or were they hopeful for a new, safer beginning?
Brandt steeled his resolve, and set out to meet these heroes, to see if they were fitting, or were a new threat to be faced in the Stolen lands. Hopeful, but used to disappointment, Brandt set out to meet them and see what the future holds...
