Name: Henrik "Beastmaster" Stark
Age: 17 (Appears to be in his mid twenties)
Parents/Siblings: Stark Family
Languages known: Westerosi.
Skills: Cooking, camping, campaigning, foraging, using an axe (In battle), using a spear (In battle), using a crossbow (in battle), light armor, canine training, riding (Horse, dire wolves), weapon and armor maintenance.
Special Skills: Animal Empathy. He has an intuititve, some might say mystic, ability to understand the thoughts and feelings of most animals. He is able to communicate to them through rough vocalization (growls, snarls, hisses, other sounds) as well as physical posturing, in a crude fashion. No animal is beholden to listen to him, although most, even the vicious ones, seem inclined to give him a wide berth. It is because of this talent he is known as the "Beastmaster".
Equipment: Because he often travels, Henrik often takes to carrying plenty of things with him. On any given day, he has enough rationed food (dried meats, nuts, berries, flat bread or hard tack, clean water, wine) to last him and his carnivorous friends a week. Additionally, he carries a small hand crossbow with a quarrel of 20 bolts, "Executioner" a one handed battleaxe made from Valyrian Steel (He discovered this on one of his many adventures, when he was younger, in a ruin.), wolf fur-lined leather cloak (dyed vermilion) with hood, cuir bouilli armor, steel-toed traveling boots. Most of these supplies are held in a small cart, which he usually pulls along on his own.
Appearance: With wild, long pitch black hair, and a large, bushy beard of similar coloration, Henrik appears far older than he really is. He has often been mistaken for some kind of wild man outside the walls of Winterfell. At Six feet even, and 240 lbs, he has an imposing physique. Broad-shouldered, barrel-chested, and with noticeable muscular build; especially his legs, from all the traveling on foot he does.
Companions: At almost all times, he is in the company of two Dire Wolves named Belda and Obda. Belda is a male, 3 years old. Obda is a female, 4 years old. That means they are very big, and while well trained and docile around him, each is fully capable of violently ending the existence of most threats they may come across. He also has a raven with him named "Oden".
History: When he came out of his mother's womb, he came out kicking, screaming, and fighting, it's said. Even from a young age, he's always been quite vicious and a bit on the savage side of things, despite his parents and tutors best attempts at teaching and refining him.
In all honesty, he's something of a black sheep amongst his family, but kin's kin. The rough way he carries himself and dresses is crude, and not fitting royalty, after all.
He first started to adventure when he was 15. Back then, it was confined to the streets of Winterfell and the surrounding environs (when he could ditch his watchers), but as he got older and his parents realized that their was no real stopping him short of binding him in chains, they basically granted him free right to go where he pleased. Possibly, they were happy to not have him wandering around the castle, generally being troublesome (through no actual intent of his own; being himself simply caused it.)
He constantly roams the continent, driven by an insatiable wanderlust. And always, it is with his faithful wolf companions, those animals whom he first grew to understand and love as kin. In his travels, he usually takes it upon himself to poke around ruins for things that interest him, and to take on an almost vigilante-esque mission of bandit killing. Thieves, muggers, rapists... humanity has a lot of unsavory people. Henrik finds joy in the simple act of killing them, or watching his wolves rip them apart and devour them.
The axe he has is something he's been in possession of for only a few months; he found it while looking around one of the ruins he loves so much. He is unaware of its unique nature, but was fascinated by the depiction of dragons on it.
