Raise Beast Companion


He’s an ex-scout and patrol leader from the long and brutal Great Orc War or the War of the Passes. He led many scouting patrols and more lethal special operations behind enemy lines. At least he thinks thats what happened. He’s pretty sure the Squig was found as a babe after its parents and their Goblin handers died under his hand. He thinks he took it in during a moment of sentimentality… but he can’t remember.
