The son of a miner, Fikod had a hard life. Fikod lost his father to Fire Imps at a young age, grew with the fortess and tried to fit in as best he could. He endured the three great fires of 204-205 that incinerated the surrounding woodland, the famines of 208-209, drought, and countless goblin seiges, as well as deadly carp. After the Great Carp Massacre of 210 the fortress entered a state of unrest.
Later in his life he was violently assaulted by a disgruntled Cheese Maker,
who had become mentally unstable due to losing loved ones during the Great Carp Massacre. The Cheese Maker brutally gouged out both of Fikods eyes in the attack. In incredible pain, Fikod refused to die that day. He made a stand against the Cheese Maker, and was forced to defend himself and kill his attacker with his bare hands. Fikod later died of thirst.
