The Totem of the Shield Bearers


A small vaguely human looking figure with a large beard and pointed hat. He is maybe a foot tall most of the time, and he has disproportionately long fingers. New members of the Shield Bearers frequently bemoan the appearance and nature of their Totem spirit. Broad Back reminds them that the spirit protects home, so they can protect others. He has also been known to tell a disrespectful wolf. “The little Tomte has been here for several hundred years. The reason he lives, is he always strives to do better. Rather than criticize it, go train. That way, after the next hunt, you’ll make it back here to enjoy the warmth of its home.


An ancestral Tomte that has been in Newark for several hundred years protecting the property that shares its name.
