Before his death: Tarnum is a young Barbarian who has spent his entire life under the oppression of the Wizard-Kings of Bracaduun, but he has always dreamed that life could be better - should be better.
After his death: Judged by the Ancestors as unworthy of entering Paradise, Tarnum wanders the land seeking redemption for the crimes of his past. He is the Immortal Hero, a timeless protector, but personally troubled by the doubt that he can ever make up for the tremendous wrongs that he performed in his youth.
Sisters: Tarnum had two sisters which were taken away from his family by Bracaduun, as they forbade Barbarian families from having more than one child. When Tarnum discovered another nation of Barbarians who refused to join his war against the Wizards, he ordered the extermination of these "traitors", unaware that his sisters had been sent there and were among his newest enemies. One of them was killed by his own troops, but the other was rescued just in time by Rion Gryphonheart, the founder of Erathia, and the man who defeated Tarnum in single combat. He would later marry her, and they would have Allison as their only child. Tarnum did not discover before his death and resurrection as an Immortal Hero that he was slain by his brother-in-law.
