Bjorn Nordholm's Origins
Bjorn “Born Twice” Nordholm was born in Milwaukee, WI to Get of Fenris kinfolk Henrik and Elise Nordholm.
A quiet kid, who kept to himself, always followed the rules, and made sure everyone else did too.
The other kids in the neighborhood kept their distance from Bjorn because of his insistence on following the rules and his anger when the rules were broken.
Bjorn was not very close to his family.
His parents worked a lot to try to provide for him and his brothers and sisters.
Bjorn's three brothers and two sisters were close but Bjorn always felt different and separate.
Bjorn's first change was when he was 15; it happened after a very vivid dream he had where he was fighting monsters.
He tore up his room and leaped out the window terrorizing the neighborhood.
The local Sept covered up his rampage and informed him about werewolves.
His Rite of Passage was a typical Get right of passage where he was forced to hunt down and kill a fomor in the area.
Not long after his Rite of Passage, Bjorn had a dream in which Fenris came to him and told him his destiny was not with the Get of Fenris, but with Stag's brood.
Stag appeared and told him to go to the Sept in the Game.
Bjorn informed his elders and left to travel to his new Sept.
When Bjorn arrived at his new Sept and told them of his dream and Stag's words, they were skeptical but put him through his Rite of Passage to test his worthiness and trustworthiness.
He had to guard a Sept secret and not reveal it to anyone from another Sept.
He was tested and passed. Bjorn now feels he is at home in his new tribe and Sept.
He is eager to find his destiny, hoping he can stand up to the Litany and not fall short.
Personality: Bjorn exhibits a very no-nonsense type of personality. He is the far extreme of the serious personality members like Caitlyn and Eli with William and John being the most carefree.
He is very strict and devoted to the Litany, even if such an event costs him personally. He cares deeply for his pack and just as much for his mate, Gina Blessing.
