Odrukh of the Jaded Executioners
Odruk The Cold
Odrukh of the Jaded Executioners was the Crocution leader of the Jaded Executioners tribe of Crocutions, as well as the Crocution representative in the Beastman Triumvirate.
HistoryOdrukh was born as part of the Jaded Executioners tribe. This meant he was raised to be a member of the law enforcement of the Crocutions, who would hunt and kill anyone who broke the laws. The Crocution laws were relatively basic ones, not simple rules that would warrant jailtime. They were all offenses punishable by death. Theft of major private property, unlawful killing outside of combat, and worst of all, use of magic. These were the laws Odrukh was raised to uphold.
Ineptitude and PromiseOdrukh found himself lagging behind on sword skills. While other Crocution swordsmen were proficient in the stabby, powerful sword attacks that were needed to fight on equal footing with Orcs and Minotaurs, Odrukh was not good at that. What he was good at, though, was the fast fighting that was often attributed to the Felids of his island, the Key of Beasts. Of course, he couldn't exactly go and train with the Felids, as they were not allies of the Crocutions. This did not stop Odrukh from attempting to meet them anyway. It was not a law he had been raised on to always attack Felids, that was only something that happened in war. So he approached a Felid tribe in hopes that they would train him. Odrukh received his first battle scar that day, as the Felid took out his eye and nearly cut off his arm. It was there that he learned the limits of the law. It was there that Odrukh found that the law was only a guideline. That even outside of those rules, there were other guidelines the Crocutions needed to follow. Guidelines he needed to enforce. People who would be a threat no matter what
"The laws alone will not save someone. There are those that will break the law, that will endanger our people. Those are people that may not be up for death, but must die. And I am the one who must carry that out. I am, for better or worse, the Jaded Executioner."Yet he managed to kill some of them as well, taking their weapon and fighting back. Then, with his speed, he was able to run away and return home. Hearing his story, the leader of the Jaded Executioners saw promise in the young Odrukh. He told Odrukh that he had an idea for how Odrukh could train. There was no Crocution who could train a speedy fighter, but there was someone else. An expert fighter who worked with speed, and with a weapon that Odrukh, too, could learn.
The Beastman TriumvirateThe Beastman Triumvirate is an alliance of the three major Beastmen races of the Key of Beasts, an island to the South of Udai. This alliance is led by those three races, the Crocutions, the Minotaur, and the Felids. However, it does include other races under its protection, for example Satyrs and Centaurs. It is meant to protect its people from Tyrant and any other powerful opposing force. The three leaders of this Triumvirate are:
- Remnant of History- The Felid Time Mage who leads his people through strife
- Odrukh of the Jaded Executioners- The greatest Crocution warrior, who is out to stop anyone who would oppose the Triumvirate to protect his people.
- Raasnore Stoutbody- The Minotaur Herd Leader, Raasnore is looking to not interfere in world politics and hopes the others can protect his people.
