Into the arms of destiny
A diminutive sorcerer from the eastern lands.
Ackbar’s memory of the East are less than favorable. Poor traveling companions, botched robberies, and threats of execution upon return to the capital are just a few of the major misfortunes that he has dealt with. After having been exiled from his homeland, Akbar traveled to the northern lands and met with the bandit company led by Olk. With little knowledge of their language, Akbar slowly carved out his position as a doctor and part time sorcerer.
Several years after meting with Olk and his company, another group of traveling would be adventurers made an agreement with the bandits. If they could get a pardon for Olk and his men, then the bandits would agree to take care of any land that the would be adventurers could claim.
Akbar’s travels with Astrid, Freydis, Nedhogg, and Thursvard began with the quest to slay Maggie Muckle Bones! During the long treck to the swamp inhabited by the dreadful troll hag, Akbar manager to garner the title “Little Orc” or “Orcling.” With little understanding of of his fellow adventurers language this title held little meaning to him.
When they managed to slay Maggie and return the head to Lord Hrofgrimm, Olk and all the now former bandits (including Akbar) were given not only a pardon, but also a plot of land to tend in the stead of Astrid, Freydis, Nedhogg, and Thursvard. Since then, Akbar will occasionally travel with his fellow adventurers, but will more often than not stay on the farm and help take care of the vastly growing farm.
