The Warband of Dolgar Manhood-Eater, Fimir Background and Fluff Part 2

The story starts many years ago back in the misty south western bogs in the cold hard land of Norsca between the tribes of Bjornlings and Skaelings.

Dolgar, later to become the Manhood-Eater was back then the High-Dirach of a small Fimir Tribe called the Mud Crows. Their Meargh an old and wise Fimir choose the way of peace from the Tribe, only taking Human tribesmen to breed from starving and defeated Norse Tribes that are constantly warring with each other.

Soon this was all to change as well armed scouting party from the Dwarf hold Karak Ankor came across the Mud Crow's village and upon seeing the captured and enslaved women began to slaughter every Fimir within their sight.

Dolgar and a band of less then 100 Fimm and Fianna Fimm managed to escape the blazing village and murdering Dwarfs.

Fleeing eastwood, Dolgar led his small band to the Wastes. Forsaking Balor and the rest of the Fimir Gods and Dietys, Dolar called out to any entity which could provide his revenge against the hated Dwarfs. One answered the one God which was also a outcast and renegade Malal!

There is a name whispered quietly and with fear even by the most depraved, the most evil, and the least sane of the worshippers of Chaos. That name is Malal, the Renegade God of Chaos. Any man who dares look within the unholy black pages of The Great Book of Despair, that foul tome held sacred by worshippers of Chaos, would find the following words: "...and he that went before now came last, and that which was white and black and all direction was thrown against itself. Grown mightily indignant at the words of the Gods, Malal did turn his heart against them and flee into the chambers of space . . . And no man looked to Malal then, save those that serve that which they hate, who smile upon their misfortune, and who bear no love save for the damned. At such times as a warrior's heart turns to Malal, all Gods of Chaos grow fearful, and the laughter of the Outcast God fills the tomb of space . . ."
In eons past Malal was cast out from the bosom of Chaos by the other Gods, or else abandoned them of his own volition, no one is sure which. In any case, Malal's relationship to the other Gods of Chaos is a strange one. All Gods of Chaos pursue purposes that are wholly their own, yet only Malal occupies a position so antithetical to the success of his own unfathomable creed. To be a follower of Malal is to be a Chaotic warrior bent upon shedding the blood of other Chaotic creatures. As such, Malal is both feared and hated by the other Chaos Gods. Malal's worshippers, too, are loathed by other Chaotics; they are outcasts beloved by neither the friends nor enemies of Chaos, dependent upon the least whim of their patron deity. Few men worship such a God; fewer still live long in his service. The bonds that tie master and servant ever drain upon the soul of the warrior, and it is a rare man that can loosen the bonds of Malal once forged.

And so Dolar now Doomed One of Malal and Outcast had the power he demanded, will he get is revenege?  How did he become the Manhood-Eater? these are all questions for another time.
