Description: Starkad was born in the city of Kelos during its recent brief period of independence from the Kingdom of the Ivory Sea. He had served in the Kelosian army as a Banner-Captain. After the Ivorians fought through the last stand at the High Gates, Starkad and a small company of men fled to the Arcane Lands. For a time, he stayed with the Last Standard of Kelos as it served various lords in the Arcane Lands. When Guiscard began searching for the heirs of Algamesh, however, Starkad was one of those called to the Sundered Valley. His resemblance to the old hero was remarked upon, as was the fact that he was the right age to match with Algamesh's stays in Kelos, and he had never known his father. Starkad sought out an exiled member of Kelos' Council, who dug through the records he had smuggled out and produced documents verifying a heritage Starkad had never known he had. So, with the blessings of his comrades, Starkad left for Last Stand.

In addition to being a highly skilled spearman, Starkad has been trained as a military commander, and is a cleric of Armand, the Soldier aspect of Thousand Handed Lierel. His divinely gifted magic gives him ways to heal and aid his allies. The combination of these traits has made him a respected leader and trusted comrade.

Magic Items

Stormcall - It's made of wood blackened and charred by a lightning strike, but somehow still retains its flexibility and strength as though it was living. The tip is, instead of metal, the fang of a great blue dragon. - Besides being a normal +1 spear, it can be thrown for normal damage, and it's Returning besides, instantly teleporting back to the thrower's hand(barring critical failures that leave it lodged somewhere). Once per day, if there are black clouds above, it can be throw into the clouds to cast Call Lightning on an enemy below them.
Mystery Shield - A kite shield, painted blue, with the Ivory Lion in the center. - It is a mystery.
Grignixt's Thread - A ball of pure white spider silk, spun by the spider goddess herself. So bright and clean it almost seems like it's glowing. - Doubles the dice rolled for healing spells, so if a spell heals 1d8 hit points it heals 2d8 instead. Additionally, the wearer cannot harm spiders.
