Edit Conan was born in Cimmeria to a clan that claimed the area in the north-western part of Cimmeria. His grandfather, a member of a southern Cimmerian tribe, fled from his people because of a blood feud.
After long wanderings, some into the Hyborian regions in the south, he returned to Cimmeria and took refuge with a tribe in the north. At night before the fire, Conan's grandfather would spin elaborate tales of his travels outside of Cimmeria, and nobody would listen more intently than Conan himself.
We know that Conan was probably born during a fight between his tribe and a horde of Vanirbut there is little solid information about his young life. Even early in life, Conan proved to be a powerful fighter.
One story from Conan's youth tells of the boy fighting off an entire pack of wolves barehanded in order to save a hunter trapped beneath a fallen tree. When he was fifteen years of age, he took part in the sacking of the Aquilonian outpost of Fort Venarium. The name of his tribe might have been "Snowhawk", but nearly every detail of Conan's family is cloaked in mystery.
The Savage Sword of Conan also claims that Conan has a brother, though there is little information about him. Conan Travelling Edit Conan enjoyed life as a raider with the Aesir crossing blades with Vanir and Hyperboreans alike.
He bled as a laboring slave and gladiator, a sell-sword and a prisoner. He lived as a thief in the streets of Shadizarmaking a living on ill-gotten treasures and "forgotten" coin. Conan has lived on both sides of the law, as a ship's captain and pirate, as a mercenary, a soldier, and finally; as King of Aquilonia itself.
He has slain beastsmonsters and demonsnever sparing their dark, sorcerer masters. His blade has tasted the blood of hundreds, and his travels took him across thousands of leagues.
But not all of his adventures were born of blade and blood. He has also loved as fiercely as he has battled. Women from many lands have earned his attentions throughout his travels, some say that few even held his heart for a time-perhaps longer than even Conan would like to admit.
No matter his past loves and conquests, it is Zenobiathe Nemedian who helped him escape from Xaltotunwho would share his life and become his wife and Queen.
His tales are known as legend and fable all over Hyboria. Except in the darkest reaches of the Black Kingdoms or the savage tribes of the Pictish Wildernessthere is not a soul who has not at least heard of the life of Conan or to some Amra, the Lionand there is not an adventurer whose life does not mirror his own in some way.
He has led Aquilonia's armies against his kingdom's foes from NemediaOphir and Koth ; sending a message that the Border Kingdoms will not be left to their own devices. There has been too much blood spilled in those broken lands to ignore any longer.
As king, Conan cannot allways venture forth as he used to, so he must leave it to his able-bodied and loyal subjects instead. They are enjoying a vagabond's life of travel and excitement day to day behind the hilt of a bloody sword, while he must patiently wait to hear of their successes.
His role has become more structured, more bound to Tarantia and the fate of Aquilonia than ever before. He sits on his throne in Tarantia, watching and waiting tensely as threats to his rule rear back like cobras ready to strike. He would like nothing more than to ride out and meet these enemies in battle as a warrior should, but as king he cannot-leaving it instead to the brave adventurers who follow in his footsteps.
Where he has been the source of legends, King Conan enjoys his heralds' tales of heroes from this new age, the inheritors of his own adventures long passed. Characteristics Edit Conan is a Cimmerian not to be confused with the historical Cimmeriansa barbarian of the far north; he was born on a battlefield and is the son of a blacksmith.
He grew up fast: He begins building larger units of men, aiming for greater territorial ambitions, though his efforts are repeatedly thwarted - usually by the total massacre of his forces, save himself. It isn't until his mid years that succeeds. Conan, somewhere in his forties becomes king of Aquiloniathe most powerful kingdom of the age, having strangled the previous ruler on the steps of the throne.
Although Conan's adventures often result in him performing heroic feats, his motive is more than often his own survival, enrichment or rise to power and he thus displays many of the characteristics of an anti-hero. Appearance Edit Conan has "sullen blue eyes," long black hair, stands 6'2" tall and weighs pounds as told by Howard as an exact physical duplicate of another character.
In the tales no human is ever described as stronger than Conan, although several are mentioned as taller such as the strangler Baal-pteor or of larger bulk. Although Conan is muscular, Howard frequently compares his agility and way of moving to that of a panther. His skin is frequently characterized as bronzed from constant exposure to the sun and his garb is most commonly a loincloth, sandals and a sword of some description, depending on his fortunes and location.
In his younger years, he is often depicted wearing a light chain shirt and a horned helmet, with the horns not placed one on each side, like most others, but both horns placed parallel in front of the helmet.
The placement of the horns made many of his comrades to mock him, but Conan stopped the mocking rather effectively by demonstrating the reason for this strange placement in many a battle. During his reign as King of AquiloniaConan was " He was clad in silk and velvet, with the royal lions of Aquilonia worked in gold upon his rich jupon, and the crown of Aquilonia shone on his square-cut black mane; but the great sword at his side seemed more natural to him than the regal accouterments.In Edna St.
