Witnessing the death of their parents at a young age due to the Meltdown at World's Edge, young Bloodhound was taken in by their uncle Artur into his society of hunters that live at its edge. During their rite of passage, they broke a tenet of the Old Ways by "slaying" a Goliath with a gun which led to a disappointed Artur deciding to exile them from the tribe. The distraught Goliath, possibly looking for its missing horn, attacked the village and killed several people, including Artur who was fatally injured in protecting Bloodhound from the Goliath. Vowing revenge, they tracked down and killed the Goliath following the Old Ways and was then rechristened as the "Blóðhundr". But for the rest of the Outlands, their identity is a mystery wrapped in layers of rumors: they are fabulously wealthy, a bloodthirsty murderer, a Goliath whisperer, a former slave, half-bat, and a dozen other things depending on who's doing the whispering. All anyone truly knows is that Bloodhound is a force to be reckoned with in the Apex Games, having won at least two championships, and is one of the Outland's finest hunters. Bloodhound's unparalleled tracking skills are a boon to any team they join, helping them root out hidden opponents and tracking the enemy's movements. Calling on Earth's Old Norse Gods to guide them, Bloodhound believes that destiny is a path that has already been laid out, eventually carrying all to their death. But with that knowledge comes strength, because until that day comes, Bloodhound knows they can't be stopped.
