Black Tom Folk
Former Borni Raider Now Council Representative Of Harps & Bornor's Field
‘Black’ Tom Folk was once a Borni Raider who ravaged the country side. Ten years ago during a raid he saved a young Molly Folk from rape at the hands of one of his kinsmen. He would periodically return to Harps to ‘check in’ on Molly afterward. Watching her and the people of Harps he began to question why he did what he did and why he followed his fellow Borni. Eventually ‘Black’ Tom left his tribe and wandered into Harps. At first he was ostracized and almost openly lynched, but over time he gained the trust and eventually the admiration of the hearty farming folk. He married Molly Folk and took her last name as he claimed to have none of his own.
‘Black’ Tom is a formidable combatant and an intense leader of men. He relentlessly and ruthlessly patrols the boarders of the Black Wood slaying the Borni he once treated as family. Molly & Tom have no children currently.
