True Neutral Male Human
Born in a small village northeast of Wereskelot, Gurney Hallek was spared the worst of the Dark War, being in a small and unimportant backwater. An easygoing young man, he had few aspirations but got along well with everyone around him. He became one of the village guard (with no aspirations to become a great warrior), and settled into a peaceful life, marrying his childhood sweetheart.
One night, about a year ago, his village was attacked by the increasingly active orcs. The village was decimated, Gurney's wife killed, and Gurney himself was nearly killed. He still bears the hideous scar on his face, wearing it as a badge -- a reminder to never forget his wife and home.
After the near-destruction of his village, Gurney and the few remaining survivors decided to abandon the villlage. Taking his part of the remaining wealth left behind by the marauding orcs, Gurney made his way to Tel-Akbar, seeking security in a big city.
