As children, the two were rescued from a circle of necromancers by a man named Jergen, who then raised them as Companions. Farkas is a bit cavalier with using his Beast Form, and can be loose with his tongue, often showing more disrespect to his elders than the other members of the guild. However, he warms up quickly to the player character, and he is quick to protect his friends. He offers both miscellaneous quests and master level training in heavy armor.
Farkas is deathly afraid of spiders.
