Thors was the son of a sailor that was working for a local merchant. After many years of wishing to sail with his father he was finally able to sneak aboard when he was twelve. He was found only a few days after the ship set sail but the captain was unwilling to turn the ship around for the sake of time. After many days of sailing the ship was raided by a pirate ship, the captain of the ship called his father to a duel. The duel was going his father’s way and was going to let the pirate captain live but as he walked away the captain stabbed him in the back. The pirates sailed away laughing, what they didn’t realize is that Thors, through some unknown means, snuck onto there ship as well.
Over the next three years Thors became apart of the crew, grew strong through the ship’s raid and rigging the ship and would regularly challenge the captain to duels and lose, and every single time he lost the captain would taunt him over his failures and beat him. When Thors was sixteen the crew, for whatever reason, tied him up, stuck him on a rowboat and left him to die at sea. He was saved by a passing ship and was brought to port where he began a carrier as a mercenary to find the captain and kill him.
After eight years of searching Thors has calmed down somewhat but still has a searing hatred for the captain.
