Gunnvar is the only child of King Folkvarthr, ruler over the Barbarian clan Alrekr. Her mother died while she was still young and her father raised her like the son he wish he had. A match for any man in endurance of ale Gunnvar is a hardened, tough, blonde hair grey-eyed barbarian (or warlord). The Alrekr Tribe is in a long grueling war against Hallvardr. Gunnvar was ordered to lead a team in an attack against this warring tribe, but she was the only one to make it back alive.
The failure lost her position next to her father in the grand council. The words “weak” and “coward” followed her throughout the village. The only child of Folkvarthr weak? Impossible! Her father gave her one chance to prove herself. Go out, on a grand quest, return with prize greater than anything ever fathomed by the Alrekian people. So she left enduring the harsh tundra of Icewind Dale in search of her calling.
