Refused by the Orc clans and shunned by "civilized" society, Kromdor hopes that a life of sea and adventure with a close crew and a stable employer can give him something akin to friends and family that he had been missing in his life up until that point. If that doesn't work out, the pay should at least be able to buy pleasures that fill that void for a time.

He often exhibits habits that are unusual for a half-orc, such as a greedy lust for treasure, and a preference for large dark caves.
