Signs and portents
Gana wears a suit of mail scavenged from a fallen knight. Her deftness and agility enable her to wield both mace and axe, and she moves with the preternatural grace of a cat. Her treasured possessions are the boiled skull of her erstwhile king and a belt of dried testicles and members from living victims she personally castrated.
Like most gargun princesses, Gana was raised to guard the hive queen’s nest until she was killed or was herself made a queen. No female could ask for any other fate. But Gana was not like other females.
Gana showed a ferocity and cruelty that was rare even for her own kind. From an early age, she was a match for any male. The Queen’s Guard eagerly followed her lead out of respect and base fear.
When, in a fit of lust and envy, the hive king tried to rape Gana, she effortlessly killed him, then slew his stunned guards with his fallen mankar. The other princesses joined in the bloodletting until every male was dead or fled. Gana slew the queen out of spite, then castrated the king and declared she would submit to no male and would rule her own hive. Gana led the female survivors into the wild to make a nest of her own.
Gana and her band of female warriors now cut a bloody swathe across Hârn, seeking to conquer a hive worthy of her abilities. A small tribe of Gargu-araki serves as scouts and hunters for her band. She recently decimated a newly established hive of Gargu-hyeka and pressed the survivors into service making weapons for her growing army. Gana’s troop is open to female foulspawn of all subspecies; black orcs fight side by side with brown and striped orcs. All fear her and obey her without question. Males of any species are either tortured and impaled or castrated and enslaved. Human females are put to death.
