Raised from ragged and unscrupulous youth to fight alongside the Iron Circle, Nazin “The Thorn” Redthorn quickly earned his keep, inspired fear and respect, and brought many victories to his band in the Iron Circle. Over the years he has connived, killed, and intimidated his way to the top of the food chain, and now answers only to far-away masters who couldn’t hope to stop him. Still, he enjoys his position as de-facto Jarl of Icenwold, and keeps the Jarl himself alive in his dungeon to amuse himself, and as insurance against siege.
Unless you’re captured and taken to the Iron Keep, you’re not likely to meet the Thorn. He is a massively muscled human of thirty five, with scalp shaved down to rusty red stubble and a brutish cunning that glints in his dark, intense eyes. Although he revels in violence, he is crafty and patient by nature.
The Thorn’s goal is to completely subdue Icenwold for the Iron Circle. He is arrogant and overconfident, so he’s willing to let the resistance gather – so his crushing victory is all the more decisive. He envisions destroying Albridge the way he destroyed Marl so resistance to his rule never rises again.
