*History: Born a simple farm boy Cathan trained by watching the warriors practice. When he could he'd sneak off watch the men hunt, and sometimes he'd even watch the raids from the tree line. It was during a hunt that he caught the attention of the chieftain. They were hunting boar one cold morning and his cheiftain had been knocked to the ground about to be gored by boar. Cathan was the only one close enough and with a healthy dose of dumb luck he launched a spear into the beasts hide. Not enough to kill him, but enough to take the attention away from his cheiftain. The boar charged Cathan, it's razor sharp horn sliced through his leg, but again he was lucky the Chieftain he'd saved killed the boar before Cathan was gored.
Afterward he was given to the healers in the village, once healed he began to formally train as one of the Cheiftain's warriors becoming his personal bodyguard by the time he was seventeen. The year he married Athine his Cheiftain died, and although the fight among the other warriors was fierce, Cathan took the title with very little bloodshed. He's kept it since.
