Fjord was a mix of both elven and ashblood orc ancestry. His skin was pale shade of grey. He had the pointed ears of an elf, but they flopped rather than point upward. He was reserved, almost shy, but blessed with innate arcane power. As a young man, he was trained by a monastic archer who stayed in Crying Leaf for a time. Fjord learned to combine both. He'd been a member of the Celwynvian Watch, and had also joined the Guardians of Golarion in their attack on the forces of darkness. As a prisoner of the drow Nolveniss Azrinae, Fjord was the victim of a number of experiments. The end result was a metamorphosis when the phrase "Dragon Soul Rage" was spoken in Undercommon. Nolveniss hoped that this monster would be his next line of monsters, shadowing the success of his ashblood orcs. However, the Guardians were able to magically restrain the creature until Fjord was able to regain control, and Nolveniss was killed before he could make the change permanent. Fjord and the Guardians were not done with the forces of darkness. Zalatas, the creature who had actually been behind Nolveniss and his experiments, was freed from his prison and confronted the Guardians again. This time he was able to complete the incantation that Nolveniss had started, and Fjord's orc side became more prominent. Zalatas was defeated. However, the change to Fjord became permanent. After the conflicts, the Guardians of Golarion continued on their way. Fjord opted to return to Crying Leaf to take care of his mother, while also learning to control his orcblood rage. During this time, Kwava arrived with a young human girl named Anen. Her mother had been slain by a foe of the Guardians, and Kwava wanted to be sure Anen would be safe. Fjord gave his word that he would protect the child. It didn't take long for Fjord to notice the strong arcane power the child possessed. She, much like him, struggled with their innate power. Together they helped each other - Fjord helped Anen to become a sorcerer, and Anen taught Fjord to be a person rather than a rage-filled beast. Anen also had an effect on Fjord's mother Gwenolyth. She began to regain her senses, the presence of the child anchoring her to the present. Fjord fought back tears the first time Gwynolyth rose from her wheelchair to embrace the young girl. Time passed, and Fjord took Anen and Gwenolyth back to Riddleport. Maly's Wondrous Vault had regrown, but remained empty. The door opened for Anen. The totems welcomed the child home. Fjord, Gwenolyth, and Anen restarted the Riddleport magic shop.
