Yoeg’s father Keroning (a full orc, and an outcast among his people) rescued Yoeg’s human mother from bandits (possibly rapists). They lived in the hills in secret and had a son. Some humans found out about the grotesque union and attacked the house. They slew his father and mother, and entered the house to find an empty cradle.
Years later (during our first campaign) a Paladin came to Grey Moor, looking for the Half-Orc. The paladin was large, well-armed, and had several stout people in his party. Fearing him, the party fled north.
He finally caught up with the party in the town of stackroot. The paladin revealed that his father was one of the people who attacked Yoeg’s house and killed his parents. Keroning had killed his father, and the paladin was here to dispense justice and rid the world of the Orc’s vile offspring. He was here to finish the job his father started.
He promised an honorable fight: If Yoeg would fight him one-on-one, none of his friends (the other players) would be harmed. The paladin produced a massive axe, saying he planned on killing the abomination (Yoeg) with it’s fathers own axe.
The fought, and Yoeg killed the paladin. He then took his father’s axe as his own.
At the end of our first compaign, Yoeg remained in Grey Moor.
