Filename: Toralf Young-Sword
Morphology: Standard Human
Current Age: 6
Current Residence: Yngol Barrow
Toralf’s family was murdered by bandits while traveling down a road
heading towards Whiterun. He was the only survivor. His only
possessions are the clothes on his body and his father’s daedric
he has no fixed living quarters and wonders from place to place
looking for resources to survive on. His body bares many scars from
combat. He can be found moving from place to place fighting and
killing bandits for their supplies.
his young age, he is very skilled with his father’s sword. It is
confirmed by multiple eyewitness reports that he has slain at least
137 bandits but there might be more that are not known about.
Interviews with the local brigands that hangout in the taverns verify
is known to various bandit groups as “The Child Warrior” and the
stories describe him as “A young Nord boy who carries a fine sword
with him at all times. Who, despite his young appearance fights like
a battle-hardened war hero.”
adventurers have tried to assist him but he insists that he can
handle himself. He is not known to have received any training in the
art of combat let alone swordsmanship. He knows some pretty good
healing spells as well.
is suspected that he taught himself these skills though pure
experience. If this is true then he could be a force to be reckoned
he sleeps he his father’s sword clutched tightly in his hands as if
it is something that is keeping him alive.
is currently unknown if he is wondering aimlessly across the land or
if he has some kind of mission or goal to complete.
He has recently been sighted staying in the Nordic Ruin Yngol
is a popular location for bandits due to the stories of treasure
hidden in there so it is likely that he has no need to move from that
location. This is further supported by the fact that everyone who has
entered doesn’t come out again.
There is still no apparent reason for his roaming the lands. So far no one has bothered interacting with him.
UPDATE: Some new information
has been obtained.
Archived reports from Imperial Scouts have recorded various times in which someone resembling Toralf Young-Sword has been seen observing combat between people. These fights involve a variety of weapons besides swords. No attempts were made by the reporting scouts to interact with him.
might indicate how he got some of his skills. Is is unusual why he is
choosing to only fight with a sword though. It might be the fact that
it is the weapon he started out with and simply got used to it.
he is known to settle inside Nordic Ruins, it is now suspected that
he has been reading spell tomes that have been left inside them. An
adventurer at The Bannered Mare was heard saying that he has
sometimes noticed a young boy follow him into Nordic Ruins and appear
to be watching how he fights off monsters inside. This appears to
confirm this speculation.
questioned further it was revealed that the Draugr would not act
hostile towards the boy and only attack adults. The adventurer claims
that they would simply ignore the boy even though he is clearly in
their sight. Why they act this way towards him remains a mystery.
Perhaps they figure he is not a threat to them or their resting
There are also unconfirmed rumors that Toralf has been seen sparring with Draugr. But there is currently no reason to believe that these rumors are true. Until more credible proof is provided, these claims are assumed to be false.

I have a few questions, most of which revolve around how a 1st grader has thr strength, dexterity, and skill to use a longsword to such devastating ends, and possibly healing magic.
Some new information has been added.
I second Scras’ questions/concern, but will add that a 6 yr old warrior is actually a pretty original concept. Kinda cool!
Or put another way, George RR Martin: I present Arya! The 11 yr old Uber-assassin! War1ock: hold my beer
Seems solid enough minor NPC. I'm not getting enough flavour of the character to make it stand out for me but there's enough meat on the bones in my opinion.
