Njallgard's past before being taken in by a Mandalorian clan is not much to cheer about. Born on the planet Vandor to a couple of nobodies just trying to get by through hunting and selling meat. Njallgard was no younger than a few years when his family got jumped by a group of pirates with bounties on their heads. While Njallgard's parents fought back with a bit of success, in the beginning, they were quickly outgunned by the sheer numbers of pirates looking to rob the house for valuables. However, it didn't take long for the pirates to surround the home and kill Njallgard's parents in the back from a distance, making Njallgard an orphan.
When the pirates entered the house, they were met with a little bundle of white fur, namely Njallgard. With a low growl, Njallgard snapped and clawed out after the pirates, every time they tried to get closer. In the end, they managed to capture Njallgard, but not before losing a finger or two, prompting him to be knocked out.
His time with the pirates went by in a blur, as he acted more like a wild animal than an actual person, as he was kept in a cage, like an animal. A few times Njallgard managed to break out of his cages thanks to his ever-growing strength, by jumping whoever tried to feed him. His countless primal attacks and escape attempt started to really annoy his captures, having already lost one member of the crew from Njallgard. The final straw for the pirates, was when Njallgard was about the age of 8, where he bite off a hand of a drunk pirate, trying to grab his blaster he dropped inside of Njallgard's cage. Snapping his powerful jaw over a drunk pirate's wrist and just pulled while going on a frenzy, clawing deep long bloody marks on the pirate's arm with his claws.
Safe to say, the pirate died of blood loss, causing an uproar among the pirate crew as the ship's captain had been the one wanting to keep Njallgard as his pet. The captain ended up being forced to give his crew permission to kill Njallgard or face an open mutiny. However, after Njallgard was shot with a sleep dart by the captain, to make it less painful for his "pet", was the ship attacked by Mandalorians.
When the Mandalorians had killed the pirates and searched the ship, they found the cage that Njallgard was sleeping in. They were surprised, not expecting to find a kid in a cage, kept like an animal. One of the Mandalorian in the raiding party, a smith called Mellow, without a second thought, opened the cage and carried Njallgard back to the Mandalorian ship.
To this day today, Njallgard still doesn't know why his old Mandalorian mentor decided to take Njallgard with him when he saw the little white creature in the cage. But when Njallgard woke up again, he was a completely different place, not just place, but a planet too. At first, Njallgard acted just like he did around the pirates, as a primal wild animal, attacking everything and everyone coming too close to him.
Everyone kept their distance, but not the one who saved him. Whether it was him feeling bad for Njallgard, or he genuinely saw something in Njallgard, the Polanuk has never figured out. But, the armoured man didn't give up on Njallgard and little by little the Polanuk bear returned to a much functioning state of mind.
Growing up in a Mandalorian society, Njallgard was treated just like the rest of the foundlings in the clan, which came him a sense of belonging, having lived most of his young child life in a cage, the freedom, and acceptance felt liberating. Although the Polanuk was a foundling as the rest of the kids, he spent most of his free time around the Mandalorian that saved his life. It didn't take long for the teachers to notice Njallgard's knack for aggressive fighting, his direct tactics and just straight out superior strength and size he had over the rest of the foundlings. Thereafter Njallgard was put into training as a shock-trooper, which Njallgard relished in.
Around the age of 15, Njallgard really started to take fascination with Mellow's work and just smithing in general. That fascination took Njallgard down the path of becoming an apprentice for Mellow, which in return taught the Polanuk the ways of traditional Mandalorian metalsmithing.
As of now, Njallgard has his own little smithing shop in Nar Shaddaa where he mostly working on normal smithing and other tool-needed jobs. Though, behind the regular smith shop, in a hidden room, he uses his skills as a Mandalorian metalsmith to craft Mandalorian armour on a forge.
Depending on who you ask, you might get a variant choice of words to describe the type of person Njallgard is. However, the most common word people associate him with, is intimidating. Though, despite his massive and intimidating size, he has a surprisingly calm and even an approachable demeanor when meeting him outside of work. Njallgard is a creature of focus, commitment, and sheer willpower when he sets his mind to something or if the situation requires it.
He's a very aggressive fighter and not afraid of fighting dirty if it means victory. Njallgard is a very straight forward guy and doesn't deal in subterfuge and he despises people that double-crosses and responds very violently to it. In fact, his most preferred way of dealing with people that have wronged him is by executing them with his massive two-handed maul.
He loves a good cigar and liquor on the stronger side, which is also a way to get on his good grace if one offered.

Based on the similarities in characteristics, as presented in your bio, please edit his species to Balinaka (no changes need to be made for your face claim).
I'd also like to ask for clarification on his behind-the-scenes armor forge on Nar Shadaa. I would be okay with him crafting simple Mandalorian armor, so long as we are under the mutual understanding that it wouldn't be beskar.
Last, his home planet is listed as Garnib in your general information but Hoth in your bio. This planet is widely uninhabited and, while it would be okay if his family decided to live there, it'd be very secluded. It also wouldn't be realistic to assume that pirates would have any reason to raid the planet as there are no established villages or any notable landmarks where valuables might be found.
Please make changes to reflect the above and tag me for approval.
Change the home planet to Vandor, would guess criminal activities are more active there.
also changed the species back to balinaka
So in order for him to be able to craft Mandalorian armour with beskar, he would have to gain it through plots or just normal rping with him?
Hello Raven, my apologies for the delay in response. I'm not quite sure how I didn't see this, but appreciate your patience.
In regards to your question about beskar forging, I'll have to get back to you after speaking with our admins as it's not something that I'm entirely familiar with.
In the mean time, I'll move your profile to approved in order to avoid delaying your profile any further.
