Chegutei Wolf-Brother

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

Born while Kargzant slept, to uncertain portents, Chegutei was a sickly child of the Bok-Chorve clan, with fey gaze and pale skin. The sun-speaker was sure he was born for a great destiny, but could not tell if it was good or ill, so he was left outside the yurt one cold night. Wolves howled in the dark, but when Kargzant rose, he was safe and hale, suckled on wolfsmilk. His parents disowned him and he was traded to a Laguros, on the entreaties of his Bok-Chorve concubine, who raised him with her own children: Alsun the Runt and Borkan the Hide-Maker. Chegutei and Borkan neither fight nor laugh together, as if living in different world, but he often does both with Alsun, the half-sister he outwardly mocks and inwardly cherishes.

Withdrawn and cold, Chegutei was never a popular child, but those who did not dread his gaze learned not to try his fearsome rages. Chegutei is now no more than an adequate rider and archer, but in the hunt it is said he has the skills, endurance and ferocity of a wolf, and as he grows his shaggy silver-black hair comes to resemble a wolf's mane ever more. His is a terrible and merciless wisdom for one so young, and while few like him, all can feel the weight of fate bearing upon him. This weight has not totally crushed his child's soul, yet - sometimes, quite unexpectedly, he will join in the games of the other riders with feverish abandon. The elders have also noted his coolly appreciative appraisal of the charms of fair Aijire, Ku-Bli's sister. Yet her father, a respected elder has more than once warned them that he would rather wed his horse to Chegutei than his daughter.

Meanwhile, the elders and the sun-speakers watch, still awaiting with mingled hope and fear to discover the nature of his destiny.


Born to great yet uncertain destiny: fey and sickly, kin-abandoned, wolf-suckled, Laguros-raised. Chegutei has a terrible and merciless wisdom: few like him, most dread his gaze or rages but all feel his fearless, driving will. An adequate Rider, better with knife than bow, in the hunt he has the skills, endurance and ferocity of a wolf. His Telmor knowledge brought him Umbrulu Stands-like-a-Man's favour and thus Crookfang and Sura's Howl. He respects his adopted parents, ignores Borkan the Hide-Maker and outwardly mocks and inwardly cherishes his sister Alsun the Runt. He admires fair Aijire, but first must discover his wolf-brother destiny and avenge himself on the Bok-Chorve.
