Ralgar smash! Ralgar is a hulking mechanical barbarian who tends to axe questions first.
Ralgar the Reborn, formally Ralgar the Leopard, was a barbarian warrior living in a swamp many centuries before the current age. His spirit was conjured up by an evil wizard and placed into a new mechanical body, so that he might lead the wizard’s minions against a nearby town that defied him. Before the final rituals of control were put into place adventurers from the town broke into the tower and killed the wizard (or did they?), freeing Ralgar. Ralgar returned to the swamps, searching for some sign of his lost people, but they seem to have vanished after so much time. Instead he found a band of adventurers who seem to like violence (almost) as much as he does. With them, he plans to make the weak people of the modern era tremble in fear of the name Ralgar, as the ancients once did! Oh, and if he has the time, maybe find a sage to tell him the ultimate fate of his tribe.
