Good genes and years of hard work in the mines have turned Tanith from a tall long-limbed youth into a musclebound brute. His dark hair is let to grown a bit longer these days compared to his years in Diamond Lake's sweltering mines and a short well-kept beard is spread along his jaw and chin. Despite being as strong and hairy as an ox, and sporting a nose crooked from being broken one too many times, his muscular physique and rugged good looks give him a certain kind of undeniable charm.
In his daily life he usually wears a loose sweat-stained tunic or simply goes bare chested allowing the six-pointed star of Kord tattooed over his hairy chest to be seen. He often carries a heavy long-hafted poleaxe.
Tanith was born the only son to a low-rent Diamond Lake prostitute. His mother never spoke about his father and for his part Tanith assumed it was because she didn't really know who he was. As a child of the streets, his life was dirty, hard, and painful.
Despite the poor conditions of his birth, Tanith was always large for his age. Friendly and simple, the young suel would often use his great strength to defend the other whores's children from those that would prey on them. But a child's innocence can only last for so long and soon his mother was gone (victim of disease untreated for too long) leaving Tanith to fend for himself.
Faced with the need to survive he found where most desperate folk in Diamond Lake do, the mines. Despite only being fourteen years of age, he stood as tall as most grown men and had a brawny muscular physique. His youth and his great strength allowed him to endure the mines better than most but it also brought him to the attention of his manager, the toad Balabar Smenk. Soon Tanith wasn’t just a miner but also an enforcer for the corrupt mine boss, flexing a little muscle and busting noses when he was told. The work dimmed his spirit but it put needed food on his plate and a roof over his head.
One day, years later, Tanith was enjoying a drink at the Feral Dog at the end of the day when he heard another patron, a priest, proselytizing loudly inside the tavern. The young suel found the interruption irritating but when he stood to threaten the target of his wrath he was surprised to see that the priest was no simple holyman, but a huge mountain of a man. Too proud to back off now, Tanith threw a punch anyway. The priest, a mighty cleric of Kord, took the wild hook with a laugh before savagely beating the young thug.
The dust settled a moment later but the priest decided not to turn Tanith over to the watch (citing the beating he'd gotten was punishment enough). Instead he warned him that the path he was on would only lead him to misery and an ignoble death. The priest told him that anyone could be strong, but that true strength came from testing oneself and competing for a worthy cause. At the time, Tanith didn't understand that the man was sharing the Brawler's teachings and too bloodied and bruised to care much about anything, the young thug scrambled out of the inn and retreated to lick his wounds.
But the words (and beating) did have a profound effect on the young man and had rekindled something in him that a life focused solely on survival had pushed aside. He prayed and not some muttered whisper in passing. He was no stranger to religion, the rants and chanting of the Cuthbertites were a well-known annoyance, but Tanith knew that the gods were many and one of them would have the answers he wanted. To his surprise it was the thunderous Brawler that answered.
