Not wishing to spend the rest of his life felling trees and splitting timber, Cuana left his home in the wooded hills of Cimmeria while in his late teens. He spent some time as a soldier in the Border Kingdoms before leaving to spend his time seeking his fortune and seeing the world on his own. He recently served as a member of the Crimson Wolves, a band of mercenary soldiers headed by Tullweim den Morder. During this time, he rescued the heir to the throne of Ophir. The new king, King Valentius of Ophir, expressed his personal gratitude by gifting Cuana with a finely wrought, bejeweled greatsword. In addition, he and his companions were all made knights of the King, each receiving their own coat of arms. His experiences with the city-dwellers in both Ianthe and Tarantia have left him with a strong feeling of contempt for most such people, and his violent reaction to the slights of civilized folks has caused trouble for both him and his companions in the past. Despite the troubles he caused while in in Tarantia, the victory he and his companions won against the Picts in the westerlands won him a knighthood bestowed by King Conan himself. Cuana continued his exploits and adventures under the assumed name Malleus the Hammer while sailing as a privateer in the seas around Argos and beyond. He trusts very few people, but his hatred of both Picts and Stygians is almost legendary. Despite his uncivil nature, he has developed strong friendships with Tullweim, a massive barbarian Aesir, and Xacksmith, a strangely-named borderer from Hyrkania, trusting them both as he would a brother. Cuana comes from a large family, Mac Fael, which is part of the Clan Callan. As is common among Cimmerians, Cuana’s entire family are large in stature, and Cuana is as large as any of them. His full name (Cuana m’Fael na’Gcoill m’Callanindh) literally means ‘young hound, son of wolf, of the forest sept of clan Callan’ (pron: KOO-in-uh mih-FALE nuh-QWILL mih-CAL-lan-in). The modern-day equivalent of his name would be Cuana MacFael.
