Half-wolf race from the brutally cold realm of Jotunheim...

Otaga

A female otaga in a human village, from the days of the Alliance.

The otaga were a race of wolf-blooded outsiders who came from Jotunheim during the time of the Black Plague.  They were employed heavily as savage mercenaries during the Gods' War, ruthless and bloodthirsty as orcs yet far easier to get along with for elves.

They are extinct from the realm of Midgard.

Culture

Highly tribal, the otaga are a proud warrior-race which sometimes ran alongside giants as their "hunting dogs."  Their society revolves entirely around the hunt and their pride as wolves.

Command is seized by the strongest, most clever, and deadliest of their tribes.  Fame amongst the otaga is garnered by constantly keeping a personal "kill-count" and claiming as many trophies as possible.  The grander the trophies, the greater the fame they accumulate for themselves.

Tribal law is decided by the reigning alpha, who is also allowed to take pick of any women in the pack.  While all otaga seek a proud death, they are sometimes distracted by their natural bloodthirst and often times their greed -- leading them to mercenary lives.

Ancestor worship is dominant amongst the otaga, though they highly respect the spirits of nature as well.  However, every otaga is expected to know how to respect and make offerings to their ancestors, so there is no shamanistic individual in a tribe.

Affiliations

Otaga generally side with those who appeal to them the most, but by default will almost always have a preference towards those of nature-affinity.

Famous Members

Nukun the Blue

The most famous of otaga to ever live, Nukun was known as "the blue wolf."  He led the largest force of otaga during the Black Plague, and was responsible for bringing them to Midgard.

Rodric the Wolf

Rodric was adopted and raised by Micheal Ove, eventually becoming a bandit and stealing the Fang of Nakith.  He was cursed by Nakith to become the first of the Wolven, made to reincarnate every first new moon of the year.
