Jotunkin Warrior-Priest of Laufey
Hammond spent most of his young life in Columbus, Ohio. Unfortunately, he was plagued from a young age by strange supernatural occurrences, which his parents thought were psychotic episodes. As a result, he spent more than one of his school age years within the walls of Harding Hospital, plagued by therapists and nurses, and given mind-numbing anti-psychotic drugs.

Hammond eventually went to college at Capital University, where he met with several individuals that would be described by the wizard community as “minor talents.” Hammond displayed some of his unusual proclivities for such talents, and was taken in by the group, where he began learning both the religious viewpoint of paganism and the magical viewpoint of spellcasting. However, his talent soon attracted a strange creature which promised to help him hone his talents in exchange for helping it with a few minor tasks. Hammond agreed, and started to learn to hone his abilities.

Your Story: It
When a deal turns sour between Hammond and his patron, Hammond and his friends attempt to banish it from the world. But will they succeed when the creature summons its allies from the Nevernever?
Hammond eventually came to understand the danger surrounding the power he was lent. With the help of his working group, three of which he was dating at the time, Hammond eventually threw off the dangerous patronage of his former Jotun patron, only to realize that his talents were due to his own Jotun heritage. Another Jotun, the giantess Laufey, offers then to continue Hammond’s patronage if he will embrace both aspects of his heritage, human and Jotun.
