Home destroyed and family murdered by a party of goblins riding wargs, Leudigar swore an oath to try and help rid the Hinterlands of the evil creatures. It wasn't until later that he heard about Ket and realized just how many of them there might be. He wonders if he might be able to call in some favours from a dwarven family that has been friends with Leudigar's family for generations. Last he heard, Boggs was working in the catacombs of Ket. If he managed to make it out before the goblins took over, maybe he could track him down...
Basically, he's a lot like a fighter with a few restrictions (no PR, no XP bonus, can only own what he can carry, loner: poor reactions, never has hirelings, etc.) and a few advantages (tracking, faster wilderness movement, doesn't get lost outdoors, better HD early but weaker HD later, better damage vs giant-class, a few extra magic-items at higher level, etc. ).
