Jarl Tharek “Serpentbane”
Taking the throne of Svalbad at the young age of 18 Jarl Tharek was raised to the position after his father, the previous Jarl was killed during the Serpents Run.
Jarl Tharek earned his title "Serpentbane" when upon seeing a great beast snatch his father from a boat he dove into the freezing waters of the fjord after him. Battling the beast he managed to carve out both its eyes before forcing his blade up into the beasts skull through its open maw.
Though his father died it was only after the beasts met its end and with his dying breath bestowed title upon his son.
