Samü Northric is a Farfolker and was born in Atlas, his skin tone and appearances make that quite clear. However, he does have some Highlander blood. His great grandfather from his father’s side was a proud highlander but he fell in love with a mysterious and exotic woman from a land in the east, leading him to abandon his life in the north and run away with the woman he held most dear. These ancestral roots can still be seen in Samü today, he is a tall man easily reaching 6 feet and his last name, ‘Northric’ can be easily connected to the Highlanders. Samü is the result of an interesting combination of these two cultures.
Samü’s father died when Samü was still a newborn leaving him to grow up in a mostly Farfolker-like manner, but due to the absence of his father he discovered an enormous interested in his father’s roots and culture. Growing up he noticed he was bigger and stronger than most other boys and that he had an appetite for fighting. He also discovered a love for hunting. His mother’s raising on the other hand, thought him many life lessons and other values. She thought him how to be humble and civil, and that he should never force his thoughts and beliefs upon other people. She also thought him to appreciate good food and varying types of art.
Samü tried to learn as much as he could about his father’s ancestors in his younger years, and he discovered many interesting things like The Red Faith, and his families preference for axes, but he eventually decided that the only way to truly learn about the past is to go to where his great-grandfather came from. At the age of fifteen he packed his bags and said goodbye to his mother.
A few weeks later he got homesick and decided it would be best to go home, visit his mother and wait until he was older, but upon arrival he found that his mother was hanged by a guy she refused to marry. This guy went by the name of Rolyk Diykur. Samü became uncontrollably enraged and went to Rolyk’s house where he found him, alone. Samü, blinded by revenge, murdered Rolyk in such an infuriated fashion, only a Highlander could.
With nothing left to lose and no one left to return to, Samü continued his travels to seek the land his great-grandfather came from. He encountered many creatures and discovered a love for cooking (which he had probably gotten from his mother), along the way.
During his travels he got recruited by a captain to explore the seas, Samü saw this as an opportunity to learn about the world and to gain experience whilst he travels onwards. He became pals with the crew and with the captain, making his time worth remembering. But then we got attacked by vicious pirates who wanted to steal our belonging, they defeated us and trapped all of us in separate cells. Samü got lucky, because of his size, because the pirates couldn’t tie him tight enough. Samü made use of this and released himself of the ropes, he broke down the door and went looking for his friends. But, the other cells were empty, where had everyone gone? He was shocked when he saw their heads sticking out from a pole. Samü wanted to take revenge, but there were too many pirates, so he ran and escaped. Ever since that day Samü has had very thick-headed responses and rarely showed that he actually cared for someone, let alone befriend them.
After a few years of finding work, traveling, finding shelter and training he arrived in Arcas, in the nation of Sutica. A land so fruitful, maybe Samü will abandon his quest to find his ancestral lands, maybe Arcas is the land where he will settle and finally have a peaceful life...
