Tegort is typical of most Empire fostered Ogres: big, hungry, and tame, mostly. Raised with his kin in the docks of Altdorf, Tegort worked as a porter unloading and loading boats arriving in Altdorf.
How he happened to meet the Heroes of Helmgart is told in the popular autobiographical volumes of one the heroes, a high elf, as translated by Magister Stehmahr Von Althausen.
It is said that Tegort was hired and acted as the bodyguard of one Maximillian Morningglory, a devout Halfling Sigmarite, now rumored to be in the "Renegade Crowns" of the Border Princes.
Tegort traveled far and wide with the heroes according to the translations. He was often a source of money troubles with the heroes trying to feed the ogre. Tegort was once almost drown by assassins in cloaks of wet rat fur (a passage of the translation that agitators in Altdorf claim proves the existence of the "Skaven" but censored by Imperial confederates of the race of "rat men"). Most notably is how often the Halfling ordered Tegort to the front of the line in many battles. Von Althausen suggests in many footnotes that the Halfling considered the Ogre fodder or a pin cushion (though this is without any supporting evidence in the translation and appears to be von Althausen's "academic reading" of the material).
Tegort returned to Altdorf according the journal. The journal makes no further mention of the Ogre, however translations have not been completed.
Some have sought out Tegort in the docks of Altdorf, but have never been successful in actually finding him. The translations of the heroes have never provided an identifiable trait to attribute to Tegort. His legend among enthusiasts of the elven journal grows with each volume.
