Name: Eigor Argan
Location: Argan (Gruenroth)
As Eigor’s family name may suggest, his family is one of the eldest families in the whole kingdom. In fact, Eigor might be a descendant directly to the legendary earl Olaf Argan, who established the kingdom a very long time ago. The kingdom has later divided into two and then reunited again because the common people living in the land have close blood-ties and wish to remain under one rulership.
Whatever his heritage may be, Eigor is by no means a nobleman or belongs to any special or privileged social order. In fact most men who claim of being special – whether it be by proven descendance from a notable hero of legend or by being a living heir to a throne – are ridiculed in Argan. The people believe that every man (or woman; a notion frowned upon in the neighboring areas) has the potential of greatness. Their heritage or social class must not be a defining factor but their deeds is what make them distinctive.
Eigor’s name is not in the lips of every Arganian alive, but his unrelenting perseverence, unflinching loyalty and iron will have made him a widely respected person whose star is definitively rising… or was as the case may be since Eigor is one of the trusted men of Birger Faegorsson – the outcast son of King Faegor Udgersson and sworn enemy of his brother Belgor Faegersson, who is on his way to becoming the next king. Eigor has long since accepted that his future lies or dies with that of Birger. He is now an important factor in Birger’s attempts to return home and make peace with his father. Eigor provides Birger substantial amount of information about the kingdom. This information is gathered by Eigor constantly throughout the kingdom since he is always on the move. He travels (sometimes alone; sometimes a member of some bigger hunting party or merchant convoy or somesuch) the numerous villages and small towns of Argan and shares information with other men who support Birger in his time of need. Then intervalling around three months, Eigor returns to the city of Vilgian in Gruenroth (usually under disguise) and arranges a meeting with Birger via Birger’s contacts in the city.
Eigor is a man of awe-inspiring size and posture and has the strength of a small village. He is not a merry and cheerful man by any stretch of the imagination, but a man who takes his position and fate in the world quite seriously. He is prone to cynicism and melancholy – particularly when he’s drinking mead or other alcoholic beverages – but maintains a positive attitude about the possibility of Birger’s return. Eigor tries to keep himself under the radar of the king’s son Belgor Faegorsson’s men, but is not always succeeding. Thus far he has managed to retain his life and health. The time will come – sooner or later – when every clan chieftain and village elder must take a stand whether to support Birger or Belgor. It remains to be seen if Belgor is determined enough to put an end to Eigor’s efforts to nourish support for Birger before that time arrives.
