Ecgweald's parents were one of the migrants who came following the great raid of 441. He spent most of his life roaming from village to village along the eastern coast. Life was hard, and short.
Ecgweald is a second generation migrant from the continent. He, like his father before him, had been moving around Britain, living off the land, waiting for an opportunity. In 476 that opportunity arrived. He found a weak-minded unben of one Uthr and manipulated him into giving up his lord in exchange for service to him. Ecgweald then killed Uthr and forced the unben to drink from his skull, after killing or enslaving all of the people in Uthr's hall. He was unable to enslave or break Uthr's son Arthur, however, and the boy escaped.
Ecgweald has lived a difficult life. And, though not evil, he has learned to be opportunistic. He has also learned to take pride in his own craftiness.
