World's dumbest jotnar barbarian ... emissary from the north.
Paljaksu was a jotnar who had been polymorphed into a massive human barbarian so as not to attract attention near Melvaunt. Orielle Bladeworthy, Duchess of Glasjenfrei, sent him to Les Cinq to beg their help in protecting the city of St. Ingrid from a mysterious mushroom cloud and magical attack. Paljaksu flew a mechanical construct called a Logos Bird, and used this same device to carry Les Cinq and their friends back to the North.
Having brought Les Cinq north, hoping that they could rescue his city and his people, Paljaksu fought bravely against an ambush by demons, but he was killed. The Logos Bird was also destroyed during this battle.
