Argrath Dragon-Friend

You need the Rune Quest font
to read this page properly.

Uz-friend, Warlord, Wealthy and Wise
Wolf-Brother, Dragon-Friend, Destroyer of Foes
Empire's Bane, Voydag's Man.

Bold wielder of blood-snake and buster of helms
Chosen of Crag-Spider, he crushed the Count
Sartar's Flame flared at his touch

Kodigvari is his clan and close is his ring
Fell is his band and ferocious his rage
Lo he's come to liberate the land.

Argrath Dragonfriend is a fanatical Champion of Vingkot and Orlanth the Warrior Housecarl of the Gwandor clan. He is a natural leader of men with a gift for oratory and battle skill. He is a physically intimidating man with a very tall, muscular build and Alynx like dexterity. A network of contacts dedicated to the overthrow of the hated lunars helps him. He fights with a spear above all weapons to emulate Vingkot. He hid among the Dragonkind and learnt Draconic and their ways. Argrath has mythic knowledge of the Orlanthi and is fully literate. He is well read in history and other cultures.
