the dragonborn runt outcast to find his own glory through any means necessary.
Dragonborn are proud creatures, great hulking beings hailed for their physical prowess. Strength was the main indicator of worth in a brood, and in the Bloodbane clan power determined who was worthy to remain a clansman.
K’oth was smaller than other Dragonborn at only 6"1 and 250 lbs he was among the smaller of the men. Even children half his age towered above him, he was scorned by his clan. His size only brought dishonor to his family and he was dubbed Short-tail by the other men who mocked him at every turn. Since he could not match the other Dragonborn in a competition of strength he honed his skills as a ranger, outwitting and swiftly felling Dragonborn much larger and stronger than himself in duels. Even still he was spurned and mocked, so he set out into the world to make a name for himself.
When he left the clan the only thing he took with him was his nickname “Short-tail”. It became a part of who he was and he was determined to make the whole world know of the Dragonborn ranger K’oth Short-tail.
