Father: Unnamed Borderman
Mother: Spirit Creature of the Wolfsktaag
The Sorcerer’s Daughter
Later it was revealed that he was actually the son of a Borderman and a Spirit Creature. His father had been caught in storm and then trapped under a falling tree and other debris. When he regained consciousness he found he had been moved into a clearing and that he was being watched by a female spirit creature. They spent about four days together until she eventually disappeared. He spent the next years looking for her without success. She reappeared one day, with a boy at her side. This boy was Truls, and his son.
He was almost as tall as his mother, he was too big for a normal two-year old. He was instantly recognisable as part human, part beast. He was sharp-eyed and quick. His mother explained to his father that while they could not be together, he should know he had a son. He should know and then forget them both. In his desperation he begged her to stay and when she turned to leave his desperation turned to rage. He leapt upon her and drove his hunting knife through her and killed her. He then went to kill Truls next, but found he had gone. He ran around searching for Truls until exhaustion claimed him and he fell asleep. While he slept Truls found him and killed him instead.
Truls buried them both where they could never be found. He felt nothing until he began to realise that the only two that shared anything with him were now gone. And being part human and part spirit meant he belonged in neither world and he would have to live alone.
