His history with the Horde is unknown. Some suggest that Otter was a Gnome at some point in time, but there hasn’t been any detailed evidence comfirming that speculation. Through the limited information that has been gathered, Otter is said to originate from the Darkspear Tribe in Stranglethorn Vale. It is not known how or why he came into magic.
Many things having to do with his personality seem fairly commonplace for a Troll, though his accent is slightly over-the-top when speaking in Orcish. He is generally concerned about the well-being of the Horde, though Otter is mainly a protectorate of women and doesn’t care for other males (with the exception of other Trolls). He is very confident in his wisdom and insists on mentoring and disciplining other Troll Mages that appear to wear lesser quality garments in a good-willed attempt to strengthen ties within the Troll/Magi culture. Otter has been known to express that these younger Trolls need support and guidance from an experienced Mage like himself. He views those on the front lines who taunt and take damage from the enemy as less than intelligent (with the exception of Trolls and those in the Tribe). Otter chooses to express his disdain by calling them “meat shields”.
Stands roughly 7′2″ upright, 190 pounds, blue skin, pale blue eyes inset far from his protruding nose. Under his helm, which he is rarely seen not wearing, his face appears relaxed and non threatening decorated with faint white tribal tattoo markings; Otter often shows his face around people and areas where he is most comfortable. He is said to have more tattoos on his left arm but chooses to wear long sleeved garments to cover them. A white mohawk is the most noticeable feature of the Troll, making him appear taller than he actually is. Otter has been known to stress how important height is to him; the taller you look, more peers will respect you and more enemies will fear you.
Otter is quite vocal about his displeasure of all types of Engineering, though hopping into the side car of a Mechano-hog seems a little too comfortable for his objections. He has a great affinity for Jewelcrafting and is passionate about discovering new patterns each week; as a result, he has developed a slight OCD type compulsion towards titanium ore, so much that mining services have sent his funds into peril on more than one occasion. Tailoring is what Otter falls back on when he is unable to attain any gems or ore. He typically finds additional ways to salvage more cloth off of enemies than his allies.
