The True Nature of Tolvir

Librarian Comment: 

This is a pre-release version of The True Nature of Magnar. With the exception of the name Tolvir being changed to Magnar for the final version, the two books are identical. 

Knowing your enemy is the first step to defeat him.

Tolvir Bearstorm, or Tolvir the Child-Eater, has led the greater Wrothgar pack for at least fifty years. We don't know much about his early life. He has never been seen in human form. Some say he was never a child—that he clawed his way out of the Hunting Grounds, fully grown and full of wrath.

When Tolvir first arrived in the mountains of Wrothgar, he snatched up scores of children in the dead of night—presumably to eat them. The Order has not ruled out the possibility that he turned these youngsters into the first members of his pack. I'm not sure which possibility upsets me more.

I have fought Tolvir twice, and nearly lost my life on both occasions. He is not particularly swift, nor is he quiet. He doesn't need to be. During our last confrontation, my blade struck true at least three times, but he didn't even flinch. This has led some in the Order to believe that he is invincible. Some even suggest that he might be Hircine himself masquerading as a savage moon-beast. This is all preposterous, of course. Mark me, recruits: Tolvir is mortal and I'm going to kill him to prove it.
