Havak, being the unfortunate offspring of a human woman raped by orc raiders, he has been shunned by both races. After several failed attempts by his mother to kill Havak when he was a child; he could only reason that her conscience got the better of her and she could not bring herself to kill a child, no matter what the race, she raised him begrudgingly for several years until she was able to find an orc community where she left him outside the borders to fend for himself until someone found him. He was found half starved several days later and taken in.
Although the orcs took him in, knowing he was only half-orc, Havak was treated harshly by all in the community; beaten, mocked and spit upon, Havak grew up with the orcs, learning how to forage in the surrounding woods and learning what he could about weapons and fighting to stay alive. Tired of being bullied and treated poorly, Havak fled at the age of 13 to live for himself in the wilds. From his experiences Havak harbors no love for the orcs or humans, considered a pariah to both races, yet he holds a keen skill in battling humans which he exploits in battle. For the past six years Havak has been struggling for survival both in the wilds and in the backstreets of the larger cities as a tracker, trapper and mercenary. Havak has seen the works of others’ deities throughout his travels, but has also come to the conclusion that whatever deities exist, they have abandoned him to his own fate and therefore chooses not to follow any particular path – he will not be subject to the rules set by uncaring gods and will only follow civil standards when he knows he will get caught – otherwise, he will do what he needs to survive. Havak is untrusting toward most of those he meets, but will align himself to those who will benefit his needs at the time.
