He has always wanted power even among the troll community. While he had the potential to be a good fighter, would never had been much better than most trolls. As a result, he made a pact with the demon lord Charun the Cruel. Does not mean that he does relish what he does including both killing and torturing. His torturing is not especially subtle. Loves to break bones when he is torturing especially legs, preventing his victims from escaping while further torture is inflicted.
Generally, he is not the subtle type, preferring the direct approach includes when fighting. When fighting, he primarily relies on his great strength, preferring to simply batter his opponents until they go down. When an opponent goes down, he will strike until he is sure that they are dead, usually until they are in pieces. Does enjoy fighting and dominating his opponents. Unlike some witches, he does not tend to like to use poison, seeing it as almost effete.
Does not have any real loyalties including among trolls or other allies of trolls. Willing to use them as tools but one should not trust him. Just as likely to take advantage of them. Does not trust anybody including his own allies. Any troll or other ally that looks like will not allow him to dominate him will be seen as an immediate threat and are in immediate danger from him.
One cannot say he is truly loyal to his demon lord but is enough in fear of the being that eh will not cross him in any way. There has been a handful of beings whom he has worked with that he fears enough that he will not cross those beings.

Bone Breaker’s History:
Taiskim was born in the Ophid’s Grasslands. His father was a warrior although not a disciplined soldier type. When Taiskim was young, his father dominated the band of trolls which they belonged to. As with many trolls, he was quite brutal including the females of the band and his children. He had multiple children from different females of the band. He would hesitate to kill another troll who was likely to go against his authority. Often on his bad side, Taiskim always hatted his father.
When Taiskim was around twelve years old, about equivalent to a human age of around ten, one of the trolls got tired of his fathers rule and challenged him. Taiskim’s father was killed in the fight. Calling it a duel would be misleading. The winner prepared to kill all of the male children of Taiskim’s father no matter if the children liked their father or not. Before the boy could get murdered, Taiskim fled into the wilderness.
Managed to survive on his own for a few years and learned how to survive on his own. In reality, he was surprisingly good at it. Still, he always had a taste for revenge and power. Even though pretty tough, he knew that plenty of trolls were just as tough and strong as he was. As well, he doubted he could challenge the troll who had killed his father and win. He knew he would need an edge.
As a result, he offered himself as a demon thrall to the demon lord known as Charun the Cruel. The pact was a sacrifice of blood. He would kill hundreds if not thousands in the name of the demon lord. In return for this sacrifice of blood, he would gain power. He would become incredibly strong and incredibly tough. In addition, any injury which did not kill him would be fully regenerated within a few days.
Vastly strengthened by the power of Charun the Cruel, he tried to return to his band to kill the one who had killed his father. Found out however that the band had been ambushed in an attack against the human settlements in the southern lands of the Ophid’s Grasslands controlled by the Western Empire. A few managed to flee but most of the trolls were killed.
Over the next few years, attacked humans traveling these lands and when possible, the settlements. This also pleased his demon master who wanted blood and destruction dedicated to him. Virtually no mortal could stand against him in direct battle. Still, he ran against wizards and powerful psychics. These were far more deadly and there were several near battles. Archers could also engage him at range.
A number of others joined him in his attacks including a number of other trolls and kobolds. One of the kobold allies made a number of high quality weapons for Taiskim. By this time, he was also started being called “Bone Breaker” for his love of breaking bones especially when torturing his victims. Another companion who joined the band was an Ogre Necromancer.
His actions have become a serious threat to the Western Empire colonies in the Ophid’s Grasslands. As a result, House Belopo put a serious bounty on his head, enough to tempted those who are his allies. Many of his allies realize that he would betray them as well. Has to watch his allies constantly. As a result of the heat, Bone Breaker is strongly considering relocation. One place he is considering is the Eastern Territories where nobody would be after him and he might be able to work with virtual impunity.
