The God of Death gave the wrong name. For this hunt, a disgraced deserter must be summoned. 
      
      An oath never to kill again, and he was on the verge of breaking it. Despite all his promises. 
              
      Kildar, known by the other hunters as Greyskin, was the only one to actually be raised by them, up there in the seclusion of Death's Temple. The world below, with its love of life and reluctance to kill, was completely alien to him. 
                
      Until one day it wasn't. Life, in the end, worked its charms on him as well, and he began to doubt, even to fear, everything the priests of Death had ever taught him. 
                                    
      Disenchanted with their teachings, Kildar seeks redemption in a strange way, one that only works within his confused mind: by setting out on one last hunt.

Feeling emotional. This realization would be devastating, even to a broken mind, and I think you do a good job portraying his struggles here.

I like to keep a character list it helps me to not use the same name twice

I envision a different reaction when I read the word 'frenzy', and what follows doesn't seem to match it.

I'm not sure why 'time' is referenced here. I like the life and death descriptions, but not sure how time is being related. Also, "only death could set you back" I realize you mean, it can set you back on the right path, but it almost reads like death is a 'set-back'
WayfarersBC  CAFFEINE:  Forgive if my comment is out of place, but calling Asvard's wrapping a 'scarf' seems to 'department store' to me. I dunno?
WayfarersBC  THUMBS UP: I am digging that Asvard has met Dur, perhaps even has become his servant or huntsman.
