Jarell Khairn is a quiet, brooding man. He seems to exude an aura that warns others not to bother him, and looks perpetually irritated. This didn’t stop many of the orcs in Houge Krahl’s band from trying when he first showed up, but though they may have initially laughed at his lack of weapons, every one of them maintains a respectful distance from him whenever possible. When he initially stumbled on the orc warband, Jarell was forced to fight for their amusement. After killing several strong warriors with his bare hands, the warchief, Houge Krahl set him free, proclaiming him a great warrior. Jarell chose to stay and since then, has been like Houge Krahl’s shadow, watching his back and helping prevent his assassination.

Jarell Khairn has neither the need or want of weapons. If possible, he will attempt to ambush an opponent from hiding, using his Stunning Fist feat to set the opponent up for Houge Krahl to skewer. If ambushing a target is not possible, he will instead become a whirling dervish of limbs, throwing fists and feet, knees and elbows, shoulders and even the occasional headbutt in a frenzy, trying to beat his way through his opponents before they have a chance to react. Often, the first attack he makes in a full attack action will be a Stunning Fist attempt to make it easier for the rest of his blows to land.

Against more than one opponent, Jarell may use his flurry of blows to cause damage, but if he and Houge Krahl are outnumbered, he’s likely to attempt a series of trip attempts instead, using his Improved Trip feat to put his enemies on the ground where he and his companion can more easy deal with them as they lie prone and as they try to stand. If an opponent wanders too close and provokes an attack of opportunity, Jarell almost always makes a trip attempt, trying not only to hurt them, but to halt their movement as well.

Houge Krahl lives to fight. Every aspect of his daily life is geared towards fighting. He dominates those around him, cowing them into admitting that his is stronger than they are. Those he can’t intimidate thusly, he goads into challenging him, where he makes an example of them for others to see.

Houge Krahl has become the warchief of a band of vicious orc warriors through little more than his own strength and brutality, which is legendary, even among orcs. Despite the stigma of being a half-orc among orcs, his ruthlessness and fearlessness in combat put him in a position to challenge the last warchief. Once he prevailed, there was no shortage of those wishing to challenge him, seeing a half-orc as an easy target. Thus far, Houge Krahl has brutally slaughtered more than a dozen such challengers. Many assassination attempts have also been made but between the strength of Houge and the diligence of his good friend Jarell, each has been thwarted.

Unlike some other orcish chieftains, Houge Krahl does not like to showboat his fights, dragging them out for the entertainment of whoever might be watching. Instead, he is brutally efficient, seeking to end the fight as quickly as possible. Usually, he will open a fight by overrunning his opponent(s), stabbing them with his spear as he barrels over them. If he’s facing a single opponent, he will position himself within reach so he may attempt to stab them as they stand up. Against an opponent larger than himself or against multiple opponents, he will often use his rage ability to increase his Strength and make it more likely he will prevail with an overrun attack.

Houge Krahl prepares spells that either aid him or hinder his opponents, and does not concern himself with buffing his allies. If he knows a fight is coming, he will prepare himself using bull’s strength and enlarge person. If he’s facing more than one opponent, he will also use bane. Houge Krahl has triumphed against more than one strong opponent by using hold person to paralyze them and then making a coup de gras attack with the bonus damage from his strength domain ability.
