Torig Bloodaxe comes from a long line of adventurers. His father, grandfather, and great-grandfather before him traveled the realms, selling their axe for coin. This is where the Bloodaxe name came from.
Torig is short and stout, adhering very much to the dwarven physical stereotype. His beard has two braids that hang down onto his chest. Torig is very dour and slow to find humor. The one dwarven stereotype Torig did break was that concerning ships and the sea. Torig captained the ship, "Fell Blade," until it was ceded in battle to Captain Durabont and the Fellowship of the Grand Tankard.
Torig's whereabouts are now unknown.
