Thurid is a cheerful cleric of Angoron, Jotunblooded by birth. Raised among humans in an Althean temple, wanderlust and an excess of energy lead her to seeking an apprenticeship with the Temple of Angoron in Alexandros. She is passionate about physical fitness, freedom and goodness and not shy about sharing these beliefs with anyone who will listen.
| Thurid steps towards center stage, her massive Earthbreaker over her shoulder. She drops the weapon, weighty head down, onto the ground and gestures with her arms wide.
"I was born to slaves, though I never knew that life, myself. My parents braved the deserts of The Desolation to give me a better life than the one they had. My father didn't make it- all I have ever known of him is this Icon of Angoron he wore when he was alive."
She holds out the Icon- Angoron's Maul, strung at the end of a simple chain, both made of rough cast iron.
"The Altheans took good care of me, it's true, but I was too boisterous for their halls. All I wanted to do was to run and climb and swim and fight. That's why when I was a girl, I begged a passing Warrior of Angoron to take me back to his temple in Alexandros, and to train me."
She makes a fist with one of her hands, pacing back and forth as she speaks.
"Training was hard, but I was harder. I earned my vestments as I bloomed into womanhood, and life was more fulfilling than it had been. But I still longed to travel, to see the world and help where I could. So when my chance came to take the vows of a travelling Warrior of the faith, I jumped at the opportunity."
She places one hand on the haft of her Earthbreaker.
"I don't know what waits, but whatever it may be I intend to face it head on, with a grin. Life is too precious to waste on frowning."
She hefts the enormous maul back up onto her shoulder, with a grunt of effort and a bright smile, then steps off stage.
