Light Sensitivity (Ex): Karoxfang is at least part orc and is dazzled in bright sunlight or within the radius of a daylight spell.

Attack: Karoxfang is a half-fiend and as such he has two claw attacks and a bite attack, and the claws are his primary natural weapon. If for some reason Karoxfang finds himself without a melee weapon he will use his claws.

Full Attack: When Karoxfang fights without weapons he uses both claws and his bite when making a full attack. If armed with a weapon, he usually uses the weapon as its primary attack and his bite as a natural secondary attack. If he has a hand free, he uses a claw as an additional natural secondary attack.

Smite Good (Su): Once per day, Karoxfang can make a normal melee attack to deal extra damage equal to his HD (+12) against a good foe.

Karoxfang the Vile was a being born from a violent act between violent races: a union of evil. Karoxfang's mother was an orc womanof Rothnog, a slave and member of the harem of a once-powerful warlord. The fabled general's father was a hideous demon summoned by the priests of Vornoth. The orc mother was an offering of lust to the demon in return for dark secrets the warlord wanted.

The orc woman's pregnancy was yet another violent act, as Karoxfang burst forth from the female's body, splitting her fully in two. The child was the epitome of evil, even at a young age. Soon enough, even the mighty generals of Rothnog found him hard to control.

Though the half-fiend's rage was immense, he found a home of sorts among the evil forces of the orc-nation devoted to Vornoth. The Dark Walker's will became Karoxfang's own, and the creature found a focus through which to harness his incredible anger. His physical strength grew faster than anyone else's, and other, different powers began to develop.

With his powerful genetics, Karoxfang quickly worked his way through the ranks of the dark folk military. Though part of the half-fiend was mostly immortal, he still wasted no time in his endeavors, as he hungered for more power. Before many of his childhood competition had passed adolescence, Karoxfang was legendary. He was known as an undefeatable fighter and a cunning tactician. None dared cross him, for his rages were also legendary. The half-fiend became general of the armies of Eastern Rothnog just before Lechig IV rose up with a rebellion in the west.

Karoxfang chiseled his name in stone after putting down the rebellion in Rothnog. He masterminded the assault against the poweful Lechig and his forces of Eastern Rothnogians, slaying the orc warlord in personal combat. but he had to flee into exile when the kingdom of Rothnog was destroyed and his army was crushed by the dwarves at the Battle of Thunder Pass.

This was just the beginning for the half-fiend's fame, however, as Karoxfang went on to found the dark and mighty fortress of Stor-gris, and forces flocked to his banner. With his flaming falchion never far from his side, General Karoxfang the Vile reigned for centuries upon the throne of mighty Stor-gris, bringing forth dark times for the goodly folk of Siriand (the continent later known as Farland).

His reign ended just as violently as his birth, as Karoxfang was duped into a trap by agents within his very own fortress. He died fighting in the year 9770 E.R., and dwarven historians claim that more than a hundred stalwart warriors were personally slain by the half-fiend in his final battle.
