A pull, a compulsion, a need to serve, to follow the sound and serve its master. Squeezed out of nothingness and into somethingness. He felt the urge to fight, to smash, to serve. Not smash the one with the horn. That one was friend, master. Not smash the other two like himself, they were friends too. No, smash the others, creatures. No idea what the creatures are, but they must be smashed. He smashed, he smashed again. He got hurt. The creatures took down his hornbrothers. He smashed again. The creatures attacked the hornmaster. The hornmaster fell. She dropped the horn. She was bleeding. The horn got smashed. A great pain. A stretching, a pull towards the broken horn. The pull stopped. He smashed more, until there were no more to smash. He fell, exhausted.

He awoke. He searched the bodies. The hornmaster was dead. He took her things. He had some things of his own. The creatures had no things. His hornbrothers had disappeared.

He wandered. He pondered. North! Norde. Home.

He met people. They asked his name. He understood them. He said the first thing that came to his lips, "Norde."

He had no other answers. No memories before the summoning. No memories of his hornbrothers or the hornmaster.

He had primal urges only, food, sleep, survive, kill. Of good and evil, of law and chaos, he did not even consider. He was empty inside. He was a story with no beginning, and hardly a middle, but surely an end, someday.

The Concept:

Norde is as simple to describe as anything in this game. He is a Viking Barbarian summoned with a Horn of Valhalla. While summoned, the horn was broken, and he was stranded. A man with no history, no morality. No self except some very basic feelings.
