The First Real Man
“Archeological and DNA evidence both point to the existence of a single Super Hunter – one extraordinary individual whose dramatic life corresponds exactly with the time and place in human history that Homo-Sapiens avoided extinction and catapulted forward.” – American Journal of Prehistoric Studies
“[points to sky] [walks fingers on palm] [shows two fingers] [shakes fist] [points to self] Do I make myself clear?” – Gnash
In the darkness before the dawn of history, Gnash was raised by the harsh jungle itself. The lone hunter was called Long Fang by the saber-tooths, The Beast by the human clans, and Swift Death by the Primordials, an ancient race of savage cannibal apes.
The ruthless Primordials drove humankind to the brink of extinction before Gnash emerged to stalk their steps. He devised the very first ‘plan’ when he drove the last of the Primordials through the Great Crevasse to the Valley of the Never Setting Sun and trapped them there with a giant avalanche.
No one has been in Valhalla longer, and some say he was hunting these heavenly forests before Odin and company arrived. He continues to collect firewood, avoid darkness, store food for winter, and does not seem to understand or care that he is not still on Earth. He talks little about the Tournament, or anything else, but his winning record speaks for itself.
