Lortar was born at home to a human father and an orc mother. He has an older brother. Lortar and his family had a modest amount of money while growing up, and they lived in a rundown shack. Lortar was seen as strange or different and so had only a few companions. When war came to Lortar’s homeland the local lord forced Lortar to join the army. Sometime later Lortar was struck by lighting, but miraculously survived and found new strength within that allowed him to push beyond his limit.
