Udlun. the Doomed. Fortitude/Endurance, Stoic Heroism, Mountains. The greatest hero of the Velnan. He just wanted to live free and climb mountains. Tgav and Hisk hate him. His mother Kaura saw doom in his life but also that he would be the greatest of heroes. Udlun faced many challenges and was never given credit. In the end he not only united and saved the Velnan people but all of the north as well. Hisk turned the people against him with her poisoned words and he was sentenced to death. Udlun died after 5 days of Frostdreaming, method of torture that involves the condemned being stripped and hung from a jagged ice wall. Udlun founded the Library of Kyberv in Jadavac. He would never be honored in life but is considered the greatest hero of the north to this day.
