Thane's Backstory and personal "Way of the Sky Raider":
Thane feels he was born outside of his true time and place. Thane's family has been lowland trolls for the entire length of the scourge, stuffed up inside of Travar instead of roaming the world under an open sky, but he is certain he should have been a member of a highland clan back during the Orichalcum wars. Thane has learned of the legends and hero's, studied the glorious history of wars past, learned the lore of the highland troll.

Thane does not much appreciate city life and left Travar for Tent City as soon as he washed out of training for the Travar Flying Patrol on discipline violations.  He hopes that an adventuring life is his true vocation. He hopes to someday make contact with the surviving highland clans and perhaps return to his true roots there.

The Sky Raider Discipline that survived in Travar was a discipline with little Sky and no Raiding. The citadel of Travar, unlike the underground kier's, had both room and need for small patrol craft to maneuver within the citadel. This allowed Travar's Air Sailor and Sky Raider disciplines to do at least some sailing during the scourge, unlike the kiers where the disciplines struggled to survive without any flight for the entire length of the scourge. But only the members of the Flying Patrol ever had use of these patrol craft.

Thane was Initiated as a Sky Raider by a person who had never been on an airship of any sort. Other than some brief training flights with the Sky Patrol, he has also spent no time on an airship. This decade has seen Airships return to the skies of Barsiave for the first time in 500 years! There are as yet few airships and few berths. Thane is excited to be a member of the generation to see airships return to the sky. He is frustrated beyond words that he has not found a berth upon any of the very few (but growing) number of airships.

Thane is reconciled to being the inheritor of weakened, land-bound, citified Sky Raider tradition. He wishes he was more aggressive and bloodthirsty, more of "the real thing". But for the last 500 years the city of Travar was the Travar Sky Raiders ship. The population of Travar it's passengers and crew. Unless Thane can get a proper berth in a proper raiding ship, he will protect the city. At least he, unlike his fore-fathers, can raid out of the city into the untamed wilderness that is Barsaive.

Thane is Confident, Calculating, and Easy-going.

(1) During "The Dark Tower", Thane hit an opponent for 76 points of damage. His Spiked mace is a minor pattern item.
(2) During "Crystals of Caldor", Thane was hit in the head and 1/4 of his right horn was knocked off. Thane has kept the fragment and carries it with him always.
(3) During "Cloak of Merave" Thane was bone shaped by a changling several times. His head is now somewhat mishapen.
(4) During "The Flying Travarian" Than shield bashed a ghost with 8 extra successes and did enough damage to discorperate it. Thanes Crystal Raider shield is a major pattern item.
