Ajax the Bear-barian

BACKGROUND

 
Considered a very gifted sailor even among his people, Ajax and his brother built a reputation their youth that only grew as they aged into adulthood. They had a drive to be the best, to explore, to seek their destinies on the high seas.   The brothers Ajax had previously been part of a doomed effort to explore to North. The expedition failed to find land and was struck by an ice burg, with the whole expedition, including Ajax's brother, assumed lost, although Ajax was thrown into the near-freezing water at the start of the incident and didn't see what became of the ship. He would certainly have died if he hadn't been rescued and helped to an ice floe by a surprisingly not-man-eating polar bear. He lived for months under the care of Teddy the polar bear, eating raw seal meat and learning how to channel the power and survival instincts of the bear, while communing with nature. And bears. All bears. Eventually, the ice floe drifted far enough south for Ajax to be picked up by a merchant vessel.   Without his brother, and with no remaining family after the Waxwing fell, Ajax has become convinced that all this loss has to be for some greater purpose and that his skills, and his rage at the tragedies he's seen, must be building to some greater destiny. To that end, he signed up for the expedition to the Penitent Bay and was gratefully accepted due to his known skill as a sailor, previous exploration experience (however terrible), and growing legend as a folk hero and bear-man.
   

AFTER THE FALL

 
As a scion of sailors many of your ilk were far from home when Waxwing fell, even in the dark days of ash you have found friends who have traveled far. In your time at Heute you spoke with many who had heard of your exploits, and they told you of Waystorms that once swept the Western Sea, barring passage to the Discovered Lands for centuries, of the monstrosities that crept aboard ships at night to drag sailors into the sullen depths, of the odd dark things with eyes of flame seen by settlers at night, and of ruins - numerous and untouched, ripe for plunder.   You also know approximately when seal meat goes rancid.

  You found your destiny covered in the blood of creatures of the deep, on the Isle of Sagray Myr. The Discovered Lands laid themselves out to you, a challenge to your strength, your cunning, and your compassion.
