Aburga Chagatai

Lord Aburga Chagatai, often misspelled Avarga Chagadaai, is the second son to a noyan, a local bureaucrat. Realizing his family's wealth will go to his older brother, he decided to set out and make a name for himself in foreign lands. His studies and adventures have brought him to the grazing lands near the Barony of the Rhydderic Hael in the Kingdom of AEthelmearc, where he had set up to fatten his livestock for the long winter ahead. The Kingdom has awarded him an Award of Arms for his service and courtesy, and he was made a member of the Order of the Sycamore for his skills in the culinary arts. His Barony has inducted him into the Venerable Order of the Ice Dragon later, and later as the principal member of the Golden Bee for A&S.

Standing at 6' 5" his name describes him well, literally translating to "Titan." Aburga is well educated and traveled for a person of his age. Aburga enjoys studying the cultures he visits, especially their cuisine. He is an accomplished and celebrated chef, especially by his friends. Aburga also studies the martial arts and is as lethal on the battlefield with a sword as in the kitchen with a wok. A flask of koumiss or bottle of mead can often be found on his hip. He takes pleasure in heavy weapons fighting, preferring the 7.5' pole arm. He also enjoys the sports of the nadam; archery, horse races and especially enjoys participating in wrestling where he is currently (almost) undefeated.
