Malzen of Grakkor!

He makes men faint from fear and women weak with wanting!


Malzen of Grakkor is a mass of contradictions: infamous and celebrated, a cunning trickster and a fearsome warrior, a wild and exotic savage who’s at ease in the heart of civilization.

Malzen’s curious combination of boasts, exaggerations, inventions, actual exploits, and very real prowess makes for an entertaining and retellable mix, especially when he’s telling them… or, better yet, when Mienet is telling them, with him present. There is very little Malzen stories, short and long alike, don’t have: beautiful women, evil sorcerers, narrow escapes, daring deeds, arrogant men being brought low, everything an audience could wish for. The stories are persistent enough to ensure his reputation throughout many places in the North, but at the same time their status as stories means that rather than being treated as a miscreant and bandit in cities like Birtule, he is something of a celebrity: as hated as he is loved, and with a status born largely of those fascinated with the dangerous and exotic, but certainly not treated like a common adventurer.

Someone with an excessive fondness of and dedication to the truth could potentially ferret out Malzen’s true history; they could visit the Grakkor tribes (which do by and large consider him just another warrior) and learn about his youth, follow his trail and learn what he did and didn’t do—but who would want to, when the stories are so much better? And what good would it do insisting on facts like “there was one giant, not two, and there was no treasure”?
