Kord is one of the primary characters in the book, The Alterverse Book. He is a barbarian of the norhtern kingdom of Maldoria, and came to the southern kingdom of Amaria when a young man. He left his home due to his father and mother being killed by Hafarian bandits, and his little sister Tawnia was taken away by them. Left alone he traveled to Dark Home where he was involved in an altercation with The City Watch, resulting in his incarceration in a Dark Home dungeon.
He managed to escape with the help of the thief Kain and eventually met Freya who then became his traveling partner and friend. Kord has always harbored a lust for Freya that initially came to head while traveling to the city of Maldor on the western coast of Amaria. However she refused his advances, embarrassing Kord, thus causing Kord to have the secret ill will towards her.
