Turfig was an ermine captain in Vilmar's horde. He was not very high ranking perhaps fifth in command. while he was asleep, Turfig had the banner of Mistmantle stolen from him by Padra. He told Vilmar that Fenris had been the thief and the whole horde followed the trail left behind by Padra.
Later on, Turfig took command of twelve vermin archers to cover Vilmar's retreat from the long patrol. Urchin attacked and slew them single handedly.
