He's usually regarded as an experienced seaman and extremely superstitious, with a careful eye and an encyclopedia of tales of the paranormal and mystic.


The Arkivjarh surname stems from the ancient tribe his family belonged to, and some of the first ancestors to arrive in the land of Kuthara/Ceyreto. Jörgens himself was born the middle child of five, as the city of Bjørn began being established, and spent much of his childhood playing and milling around in the family's business, helping in his father's woodworking and bricklaying. Belonging to one of the more privileged, older families however, he was given a chance to study at the universities of Kuthara and was able to come back to Bjørn with shipbuilding skills to gain himself a trade in the now prospering city. Soon after, in a shortage of capable leaders (And after much begging and bargaining) he was given the role of Admiral of their inexistent fleet, and began to commission barques for their usage.

After two years of working for the crown, and right after becoming the mayor of Svalrjr, he went missing. It is said he spiralled down a cycle of alcohol addiction and mental unwellness, and decided to take a sudden voyage around Great Terra. Thanks to these he has earned his reputation, and is, after two years of sailing in his personal ship, back home.
