The Grand Crusade
Cpt. Smalls Gorgain
Half-Orc, Captain of The Second Company
Smalls was born as a runt of a Half-Orc in an Orc tribe that shunned such weakness, and was soon abandoned to the wilds, where he would have died had it not been for a kindly tribe of nomadic Hill Dwarves, who took him in and raised him as one of their own.
However, one day as he was returning home from a hunt, he came back to find that his adoptive family had been massacred by a red dragon, whom he still hunts to this day.
