Battleborn

Most babes are born in a calm environment, are swaddled, fed, and protected, other children enjoy less salubrious births, but the Battleborn have the most atrocious births. These are the babes that are born in battle, usually to a mother dying in combat from wounds received while frenzying. Some battleborn are pulled free of their mothers, while others slither their own way into the world. These children were born amid blood and death and it walks with them for the rest of their lives.
