This person is the keeper of Bears Axe - charged with it's safe keeping until such a time that it is needed in a time of great war when it shall be granted to the leader of Rathgars Armies.
Rathgar is a realm of simple and hard folk. The harsh climate causes the inhabitants to be hardy and independent minded, but gain the trust and loyalty of the inhabitants and you have a strong friend to stand with you in the shield wall.
The land has villages and town, the folk long since having learned that city life need not be a terrible curse, it still contains a large fraction of mortal freeholders in the wilder lands. Mortals respect First Ones, but First Ones are also expected to earn that respect. Woe befalls the First One that assumes his ancestry alone makes him worthy to lead free warriors into combat.
