Champion of Vinheim
Distantly related to giants and infused with the supernatural essence of their ancestors’ mountainous home, the first goliaths lived on the highest mountain peaks—far above the tree line, where the air is thin and frigid winds howl. Erik Ulfarsson, Champion of Vinheim, has inherited the plight of his ancestors. The Vinhish people have a difficult history with the goliaths, due in part to the city's long-standing rivalry with the Icewalker frost giants of the Frigid Valley. Though in truth goliaths and frost giants are wholly different beings from one another, it would seem that social stigma is still an obstacle most Vinhish struggle to overcome.
Erik has earned his fierce renown fighting alongside the Vinheim City Watch for years in defense of his home. So much so, that anyone in Vinheim would be a fool to deny his strength or his devotion to Forossa. Ceraxil Flametongue served as somewhat of a mentor to Erik during his time in the City Watch, but now, it was time for Erik to leave the roost. An even greater threat loomed beyond the Icewalkers of the Frigid Valley - the one known as Strahd von Zarovich.
