Cadeyrn Griogal, Scottish Half orc of the orc clan Griogal.
For as long as he remembers, he has been living with a curse. His body seems to be slowly wasting away. It was seen as an ill omen by some of the clan shamans. They wanted to sacrifice him to the gods to show their devotion, but there was one of the older shamans, Eógan, who protected the kid and proclaimed that he was certain he could cure the affliction. Several years went by in which Cadeyrn was experimented on by the old shaman. Ritual tattoos, elixirs, physical combat, tests of wit. Everything was tried, nothing succeeded. Eventually, Eógan died of old age and Cadeyrn was exiled from his clan, only to return if his blight had been healed.
Cadeyrn traveled the country getting hired as a bodyguard by those who could look past his sickly exterior. Through one of his employers he came into contact with the Royal Explorer’s Society. Learning of what they do, Cadeyrn now works solely for them in the hopes of recovering something that can rid him of his curse, so he can finally return home.
He covers his body in bandages in the hope to slow down the wasting, but when out in public he tries to hide his facial features with a full helmet, as not to scare people.
