The Orphaner is something of an urban legend among Seattle area ’runners and gangers – a troll ’runner who has been operating for longer than most of them have been alive. Rumored to take any job, no matter how dirty, and always complete them with maximum kill count. Loyal only to money, recognizable by his distinctive custom axe (which has urban legends of its own).

In truth, there have been several Orphaners across the sixth age. They are always trolls, and the current one is always chosen by their predecessor and trained or tested to prove their worth. When one retires, he passes on the custom axe, a highly enchanted weapon focus, to his successor, who eventually chooses a successor and the tradition continues.

The current Orphaner is a shamanistic mystic adept named Dualscar for the distinctive twin scars on his face he gained during a ritual. He grew up with a small tribe that helped him master his mystic abilities, but his impressive physical capabilities drew the attention of the previous Orphaner, who slaughtered his tribe during his final vision quest.

When Dualscar returned to his tribe’s land he found a large combat axe, a cheap commlink with a fake ID, and a note apparently written in blood: “Come find me in Seattle if you want revenge. -Orphaner”
