The idea of Yakra started out as a dwarf cavalier, at a LARP. In his First representation, Axe and Shield were wielded, battles were fought, drinks were had, and so on. The idea of a burly, rough Dwarf with a huge shield sticks.
Yakra the Second was a 3.0 D&D Character, a Dwarven Fighter, whom went from levels 1-6 before being retired. Noteable accomplishments include the acquisition of a +1 Frost Dwarven Waraxe.
Yakra the Third was the Yakra you've come to know (and love?). WoW, Dwarven Warrior, Historically Protection.
Yakra the Fourth was my Car.
Yakra the Fifth was my First 4.0 D&D Character, a Dwarven Warrior. Noteable accomplishments include nearly dying several times in the introductory campaign, and consistently failing to land a "Tide of Iron" attack.
Yakra the Sixth will be a Figureprint, which has been ordered, and will hopefully arive shortly.
