Drenok Johansen, also known as the Wielder of the Great Axe, is a mighty warrior hailing from the Norscan Icefang Tribe.[1a]


The great sagas of the Norse tribes tell of a mighty warrior known as the Wielder of the Great Axe. Long ago, in the icy, inhospitable tundra of Norsca a young clansman with fire in his eyes and passion in his heart left his clan in search of his father's fate. His father was Johan warrior-prime, Chieftain of the Clan Icefang, possessed by a Daemon of Khorne. Johan had disappeared, rumoured to have travelled across the seas. Leaving the clan in a self-imposed exile, he was never seen again in the lands of his birth.[1a]

After many a long year within the realms of the Old World, Drenok took ship to the New World in search of his father. Weeks dragged on into months, and months into years, until finally the day came when the two mortals crossed paths. Only then did Drenok truly know fear, for when he looked into the face of his father, he saw the Daemon within.[1a]

A titanic struggle ensued between father and son. The battle was fierce and long, lasting for many hours. With each wound Drenok inflicted upon this Daemon, his father, anguish and rage consumed his soul. Finally, his father fell and the battle was won. But this was no true victory, this was a day of mourning. For Drenok had now lost a part of his soul he could never reclaim. He gazed upon the great axe, which lay at the feet of his father's corpse, and realised it was the legendary axe of the Icefang, his clan. Lifting the mighty weapon above his head, his hair braids blowing in the wind, he roared in defiance of the world. His quest would be to bring honour to the death of his father.[1a]
