Jurri's Stats and Background

Post  Jurri Grebel on Sat Jun 06, 2009 9:17 pm

Jurri is the only son of a skald. He is also the nephew of Kelsi Grebel, the trapper. He is a wanderer at heart, though he is currently (since the previous winter) in the employ of clan Daas. Jurri is friendly, and enjoys the company of others, but when he is not performing, he usually prefers to observe the people around him. He's always been a good judge of character and has a good sense of who he can count on and who he should avoid. He's definitely a free spirit, seldom staying in one place for very long. Jurri's a singer and storyteller, though he has respectable skills with several instruments as well. He knows a wide range of eddas (heroic or mythic tales, often sung) and skaldic tales (typically spoken poetry), but he's always interested in learning new stories and songs. His voice is deep and resonant, capable of captivating his audience for hours.
