Full Name: Ral’rush of the Darkspear
Nicknames: Rush, Ral, the Blood Drinker


Date of Birth: springtime in the year 0, around the time when the Dark Portal opened
Age: Mid thirties
Race: jungle troll
Gender: male
Hair: dull red
Skin: light blue
Eyes: dull red
Height: 8’4” / 254 cm
Weight: 450 lbs / 204 kg
Place of residence: nameless Darkspear village in Dustwallow Marsh, Kalimdor
Place of Birth: cluster of huts on the coast of Stranglethorn Vale, Eastern Kingdoms
Known Relatives: numerous; his parents are alive, and his multiple siblings and cousins are all married with kids. He’s also been married to the same woman since the sinking of Darkspear Isle.


Religion/Philosophy: confused and non-observant, though he respects his family’s veneration of the loa Hir’eek
Occupation: career soldier, wandering do-gooder, and a fungus farmer when not at war
Group/Guild affiliation: none (I’ve been playing since vanilla and never spent any considerable time in guilds)
Guild Rank: n/a
Enemies: surprisingly few among the Alliance; most of his enemies are former commanding officers or demons whom he killed multiple times


Likes: humid weather, arguing about the news, competitions in crowded and noisy taverns
Favorite Foods: cat meat, fluffy puppies, stinky mushrooms, broccoli-flavored ice cream
Favorite Drinks: cactus punch, orange juice, the blood of his enemies
Favorite Colors: red and black
Weapons of Choice: a two-handed mace as his primary weapon for attacking other heavy infantry, though he always keeps two cutting blades as sidearms such as machetes or falchions
Dislikes: disunity, ending friendships, antisocial behavior (he’s a hypocrite there), stereotypes
Hobbies: mount racing, animal fights, liar’s dice


Physical Features: though of average height for a Darkspear, Rush is of heavier build, fitting the archetype of the stronger, hardier berserkers. He doesn’t do much with his hair and beard, shaving everything off when going on the march, letting it all grow back until it gets in the way of fighting, and then shaving everything again. His clothing style tends to be very primitive, and other trolls as well as orcs can usually identify him as a villager by his unstitched garments.


Special Abilities: his stamina is his pride and joy; it’s extremely rare that he grows tired of physical activity. He’s also exceedingly difficult to render unconscious without poison or magic (though he’s also rather vulnerable to the latter two things). He’s also regenerated from particularly horrible injuries which should have killed him, albeit over a slow healing process.
Positive Personality Traits: loyal, helpful, open-minded (for a troll), dependable
Negative Personality Traits: poorly educated, follower personality, indecisive, excessively cruel when angered
Misc. Quirks: he experiences visual distress when pushed to rebel against authority; he’ll commit acts he knows are wrong when ordered unless the act is extreme, or if he sees other people rebelling first.
Played by What Famous Person: Ron Perlman! And ONLY Ron Perlman!
Theme Songs: Listen to this like a soundtrack while reading, I guess?


History: very little about Rush’s story is unique or out of the ordinary. The story of contemporary Azeroth’s armed conflict is like the story of his life.


His family having boarded the large galley ships with the orcs, Rush joined the Horde and participated in the Third and Fourth Wars, the War in Outland, the Siege of Orgrimmar, the Wars against the Iron Horde and the Burning Legion, and the War against the Jailer’s forces. In between wartime, he lives at a village of mostly Darkspear trolls in northern Dustwallow, where his family farms fungus in a stagnant swamp.
