Torvald Orksbane, the One Eyed, King’s Thegn, Right Hand of Ragnar.
(Primaris Wolf Lord with MC
Power Sword and Relic Shield)
Torvald is a grizzled old wolf who has fought with the Vlka Fenryka for many years. As a Blood Claw he saw Berek Thunderfist become lord of the great company and was eventually invited to join the Wolf Guard after saving Thunderfist’s life in battle with Orks. It was then that Berek dubbed him Orksbane. One of his first assignments as a Wolf Guard was to represent the Chapter in an honour duel while fighting with the Dark Angels. Torvald was victorious and took his opponent’s blade, an ancient Terranic Greatsword, as a trophy. The sword was reforged by the Iron Priests and inscribed with Fenrisian runes. It has been his chosen weapon since.
For a time Torvald was considered to be Berek’s natural successor but that changed with the meteoric rise of Ragnar Blackmane. When the young Blackmane joined the pack it was Torvald who taught the young Blood Claw the ways of the Vaerengi and the two quickly formed an unbreakable bond. After Thunderfist was slain, Torvald was the first to join Ragnar on the hunt for their lord’s killer. He lost his eye in the subsequent battle with the Word Bearers.
Upon his elevation to Jarl Ragnar named Torvald as his champion and gifted him a relic shield found in the depths of the Fang’s armoury. It’s origins unknown, there are those who whisper that it once belonged to Russ himself.
