Nidhogg the Unsevered
I will kill the one-eyed God and offer his corpse to the Raven queen!
While traveling on a pilgrimage with a few of his brethren Nidhogg was attacked by a large group of bandits the bandits not satisfied with simply robbing the clerics decided to make sport of severing their limbs and seeing if a fellow cleric could heal them before they died. They did this for days but unfortunately for the bandits 9 one of their number held on to nidhogg’s relic. Upon seeing it he summoned the power and fury of the Raven queen to smite the bandits and free himself and his companions. When all was said and done only nidhogg escaped without having and of his limbs severed. Later in his journey he came upon some monks in need of aid he dispatched the foes and in so doing gained the appreciation and friendship of the monkey monk Houzi.
