Barbarian

Coming from the hunter lands, dressed in the hide of a bear, the barbarian is an imposing figure indeed. His great axe strapped to his back and the savage look about him makes him a truly imposing sight. But behind the crude looks is a cunning that most civilized people ignore. Tribal by nature, the barbarian does not fit well in civilized social settings, preferring the open steppe or the wilderness. Barbarians are decent enough companions to have in a party, but woe to those that stand opposed to them.
