The High druid of Hogunmark, Thorjak the Green, lives in a carefully maintained and protected grove in central Hogunmark, deep in the woods. He is a great source of wisdom for those in Hogunmark and elsewhere; pilgrims, druidic acolytes, and others seeking wisdom often journey to his grove to pose questions or request training. Thorjak is an ancient man; not all visitors come away with the wisdom they sought, but travelers continue coming.
Appearing to be in his mid-seventies (but actually over 350 years old due to his long life blood ability), Thorjak is Hogunmark?s oldest known resident. The white-haired man has a face weathered by the elements; his once-muscular six-foot frame has become somewhat stooped with the passing of time. Though his blue eyes are clouded with age, the old druid seems to see beyond that which can be perceived by the five senses.
Thorjak has lived in a grove deep in the wooded province of Fjoltyr for as long as anyone can remember. Visitors ? from pilgrims and druid acolytes to jarls and kings ? have been known to travel scores of miles to seek his advice and teachings. They are seldom rewarded with simple, straightforward replies, however, as Thorjak believes wisdom cannot be given ? it must be found. Even those who leave the druid?s company in frustrated puzzlement find they are more at peace with themselves than before consulting him. Thorjak himself exudes such calm that his presence quiets the spirits of those he meets. His trust in Erik to see the domain and its people through any turmoil keeps him from becoming mired in short-term disturbances. It is said that should Thorjak ever become genuinely agitated, Hogunmark faces great peril indeed.
The ancient druid seldom leaves his grove, though in his younger days, he often wandered
Hogunmark?s tundra and taiga to better commune with the land. He does, however, occasionally
travel to Veikanger for supplies (the little he needs that nature itself cannot provide).
During times of crisis, he has been known to appear unexpectedly to the regent like a calm in a storm, though his counsel during those times remains enigmatic as ever. Since Freila?s death (which the druid sensed even before it was publicly announced), Thorjak has refused most visitors. He spends his days in meditation, listening to the cry of the wind, the whisper of the snow, the murmur of the pines. And for the first time in the domain?s collective memory, a look of apprehension crosses his brow.
