The Hound that was also Killed

The Hound that was also Killed

What irony that on the eve of greatness I, Helltaff was stuck low to be but a footnote;an asside in a strangers story. (intreresting that while alive, I could only understand Infernal and express my agrement or not through actions and barks. Now that I am dead I am now free to express my thoughts through a sensitive)

It all began years ago when I was but a young hound out being traied by my kin. I had dominated my litter mates in our mock battles. I could no longer restrain my ferrocity with my brothers ans sisters. My sire was much pleased and promoted me to the regular training My self against three seasoned Orcs. At first I lost miserabrly. I was mortified to be in the same position as the runt of the litter; I who had always been on top of the order. I soon became so furious at my ignoble position and as soon as I was Healed; I rejoined the arena. I became even more ferocious!!! Through the red haze I saw My last foe being removed from the arena. I was being restained be the largest houndbeast I have seen. ?? He informed me that I had done well and then sent me spralling. I lept back up with a growl to see ?? lazily grinning through the biggest fangs I had seen. He tuned and walked away, paused and looked back. I was to follow such a one as that. My pride gave my fatiuged body strength. I padded after him and discovered the the truth.

We were raising an army that would defeat the oppessors that used our skills and in turn treated us like ordinary dogs. Our numbers included about a third of the orcs and a being known only as It.

We had been much intrigued to hear of a group of very strong warriors who had penetrated the giant’s lair. (a lair stolen from us!!). Perhaps we could form a common cause and join forces.

As soon as we defeated the lagest of the giant’s we could count on many more orcs joining us. A favorite comrade (although only an orc, he was ferocious in combat.) and I were dispatched to discover if we could treat together. We were discovered watching and being supprised I let loose some flame. My comrade came running and joined the fight. Although somewhat cawed by a dog like humanoid, I tried to defend my friend although we were both quikly overcome. My recent matting had been sucsesfull. I can only hope my death will be avenged by my sons and littermates on those we had begun to place a hope of freedom.
