The Descent: Journeys in the Dark (Second Edition) Wiki

Orkell the Swift is a playable hero in the expansion Shadow of Nerekhall.


Orkell the Swift was once a bandit, exulting in the excitement of daring raids and bloodshed. One fateful day, though, the cries of a child victimized by his band and its raids prompted Orkell to recognize the devastation he left behind. Since that day, Orkell has been forever changed. He remains ever ready to hurl himself into the fray, but he now does so to defend the helpless, bringing swift brutality to any who mean them harm.
