Jarek was born in Steinnmundr, raised as a warrior. As part of his families unique tradition, Jarek recieved two things; he was taught a unique field of fighting, what others often called "berserking"; and he was given a puppy, a dire wolf with an all-white coat. Jareks family prided themselves as dog-raisers, and each member of the family had their own dire-wolf from youth. While the majority of the warrior groups and fighting styles were organised around remaining stoic, calm, and intimidatingly in control of themselves and the battlefield, Jarek was trained to allow himself to be guided by his emotions, to control them and use them as motivation; to use an overly aggressive style of combat to truly get his heart racing. Berserkers are thrill seekers, and using the influence from the act that earned him his title, he gathered like-minded folk and set out to build a 5th clan to the east. || Raised by Jareks family in Steinnmundr, born in a litter of 3, Asta stood out from her siblings with her unique coat, an all-white coloring, with stark blue eyes. Given to be raised by Jarek as his companion, the two grew and trained together from a youth.

Accomplishments & Achievements
Steinnmundr miners were digging in the mines looking for more veins of frost ore, when they accidently opened a hole into a large cavern, containing a massive, hibernating bear-like creature with claws and teeth of hardened ice. The disturbance awoke and angered the creature, sending it into a frenzy. The miners retreated, and Steinnmundr mobilised it's warriors in an attempt to stop the beast before it destroyed their home. Any traps they laid were ignored, and a vicious battle ensued. It smashed into their lines and scattered them, sending the organised warriors into disarray; it was then Jarek distinguished himself by clashing with the beast, and slaying it, earning the title "Wolf Berserker".
Morality & Philosophy
Jarek believes that a true warrior is one who is sound in body, mind, and soul, taking care of them well. Using emotions as motivation and partaking in things that get the heart beating; this includes not-fighting activities as well.
