If you have played Guild Wars 2 you'll realize that he fits every single description of the race.
* Huge-ass body and muscular build
* Lives in the icy region
* Outragous facial hair
* The cold doesn't seem to bother him, neither does it to norns
* Tattoo, BLUE tattoo
* Extremely similar armor with one of the Norn cultural armor
* He builds his legend by helping people, like a Norn does
* No lore yet but the ram symbol is REALLY similar to the spirit of the wilds concept
So @RiotWrekz, I take it that you got tons of inspiration from the Norns? :D
I love you so much, norn is my favorite race in GW2 and Braum just made my dream come true.
