fought in the war, 1 particular episode sticks out in memory where the camp was ambushed by a sneaky orc force, Ulfgar grabbed equipment from the smithy to join in with the defense, it was a hard fought battle but the dwarfs held but with a high cost of lives. Ulfgar hasn’t forgotten or even forgiven the underhanded tactics used by the orcs that day. He still harbours disdain for them to this day, after seeing many of his fellow soldiers fall.

- Has a band of brothers mentality with other soldiers (and ex-soldiers) in the dwarfish armies

NPCs he regularly interacts with:
the survivors of that ambush (not many)
His shieldwarden “wingman”, Gorin Balderk
His favourite bartender, Amber Toryunn
master of the forge (quartermaster), Orsik Frostbeard
