Vissa Mac Morfans
Vissa The Wolf
Biography Born of Elisa of the Aral and Victaron Morfans, Vissa was the 4th child of seven. Tutored in the sword, axe and bow from the age of 4, he would spend his childhood racing in the woods with his 2 older brothers and sister, while his younger sister stayed at home, studying the sigils and runes. His brothers Grath and Bors (6 and 7) grew into notable bandits and launched a joint raid at the age of 13 and 14. Victarion gave the boys praise and following a successful raid by his sister Kara. It was Vissa turn to try. Though his 2 older brothers had larger kith bands and led more raids then he, Vissa organised a raid into the heartlands of the Eagleeye territory, wearing no insignia and wearing only peasant clothes. He planned to show up both his brothers and the Eagleeye people. His warband of 15 men snuck into a village and set several fires, as guards from the local town came rushing to its defence, with the lack of soldiers defending the town, it was sacked and a vast horde of treasure was returned to Demnoc.
The reprisal raid was brutal and turned into a small skirmish Bors was severely wounded and lost a leg, turning onto the druids path instead. Vissa was deep in the combat and earned much glory that day, saving his fathers life from a lance charge. At the age of 16, there was a combat trail to decide who would take Victaron’s place when he died. Combat, scouting trails and planning and discussions for the future. Vissa plan was cunning and vicious and after besting both his brothers in combat but losing to his sister. It was decided that Vissa would take over. The following winter Victarion died of fever and Vissa took over. He immediately began his plan of reorganising the country. Turning the towns into fortified towns called Burghs and creating a standing levy while opening trade routes. Now aged 18 he is beginning a new phase of ruler ship.
