Boar, The Beast

Season One Story

“You can tell that the Boar is mad. It’s in the deranged bastard’s eyes and that grin. You hear everyone mouth off about how mean their big guy is, about how he’s unstoppable and how he’s going to waste anyone in front of him. The Butchers don’t do that. They don’t need to. Everyone is already scared of the monster that is Boar. I think half of the Butchers don’t care to draw his attention to them much neither. When his blood is up, I don’t think he much cares who you are, friend or foe.

I mean, how could you have such a player on the squad? Someone so self destructive? The Butchers don’t seem to mind. It’s because they know how to lead him into what he does best; just aim him at the opposition and watch him go. Who gives a shit about whether the man can string a sentence together without foaming at the mouth, when he’s busy crippling some poor bastard too stupid to know to just run away when he saw him coming?” - Flint, Mason’s Guild Vice Captain

Boar knows that they say these things. He knows that anyone he’s ever shared the pitch with avoids him and after games, how only the Ox wants anything to do with him. He respects the man for that, knows that the Master Butcher is a hard man in his own right, worthy of Boar’s loyalty; or as much as he has, anyway. But for the rest, Boar doesn’t care what they think.

Boar doesn’t even really care about Guild Ball. If Boar didn’t play Guild Ball, then he’d have been executed long since for murder, or killed fighting in some far off place, under a flag he couldn’t care less about. The crowds might roar his name, cheer when he does it in front of them, but few dare to entertain the real truth for it is too dark to consider. Guild Ball gives Boar a legitimate reason to do what he does best, what he lives for. The thrill of spilling blood, of when you feel your fists smash into someone’s face, the savage glee of wringing the life out of a man by his throat and the look on their face when they see their fate come upon them. Brutal and vicious violence drive the Boar and nothing else.

Yes, Boar knows that he is mad too. And he doesn’t care, as long he can carry on living his life one bloody victim after another.

Top Tip

Boar has an incredible damage output, and is very efficient at what he does. He is Furious so can Charge for free, he is Bezerk so makes a free Attack if he causes damage. With TAC 8 and DMG all along the playbook Boar will likely Take-Out his target. Just make sure you keep him safe and unleash him when the time is right.
