Gvideon is a study in dichotomy -- witty jests, easy bard's tales, and foolery in peace; relentless pursuit, slaughter, and retributive rage in the face of tyranny.

The Song of Gvideon the Savage Skald.
Through the mists the giants strode,
His village and folk they clove.
As a young child, for work and play, was he caged;
As a broken boy, for liberty and justice, he raged.
The giant’s home; a Dwarven raid,
To hew giant heads with many a blade.
As a barbarian strong, iron chains, he broke;
As a free man, with giant’s own blade he smote.
The battle done, the dwarves impressed,
That a human youth, was so possessed.
As adopted son, Ulturik Ways he was made to learn;
As a learned man, liberty for others he came to yearn.
Two armies’ demise, word was spread,
The dead dragon’s return the dwarves did dread.
As warrior strong, the dwarf-raised youth was bred;
As savage skald, South he strode, with evil to behead.
