Zul is starting to show his age, he isn't the spry arena champion he used to be in his youth. Zul made his fame as a Gladiator in Tyr before the fall of Kalak, and after he was freed fell into mercenary work. After a number of increasingly successful as well as dangerous mercenary contracts, Zul managed to get severely injured when he was mauled by a Sand Howler. After the howler incident he settled in Altaruk and transitioned his band into providing protection and guards for the settlement. Zul seems to be more and more on edge every day as he continues to receive ever increasing reports of Giants ranging and scouting farther and closer to the fort every week and he feels it's only a matter of time before they amass for an attack like they have decades before.
