Vekar Headtaker

History and Appearance

A Vanaquisl hero-warrior, Vekar has gained the services of a totem spirit - that of an Urbear. When possessed by the bear spirit, Vekar grows in size. His skin becomes shaggy and his face is distorted by a protruding muzzle. He does retain his basic human form, however, and becomes a fearsome fighter.

When not possessed, Vekar is a short (about 5'6") but heavily built man with long black hair braided in two plaits, all heavily laden with charms and tokens. His muscular arms are covered with tattoos depicting his career and tribe, while secret tattoos gained in the course of his heroquest snake across his chest and back. He normally dresses in heavy furs, overlaid with a chain hauberk he took from a Halsing warrior. While not prepossessing in the normal way, - his dark eyes glare out from under beetling brows and his once aquiline nose has been broken and reset so often that it is noticably bent and flattened- he has a sheer vitality that proves winning to men and women alike.
