A gods-damn champion, with exceptional hair.


Male Dwarven Paladin (Avenger)
Age: 38
Height: 5’1"
Hair: Dark Brown (exceptional)
Faith: Torm


I have two rules I live by. I don’t put up with shit from Devils. And I don’t do tag teams with blonde relatives.

Yeah. I met Legolas once. He was doing some hand spring into a cartwheel on a roof or some shit. I do real adventuring. Not trying to be the best at exercising. Fuck that guy.

Sure, I’ve been called a xenophobe, but the truth is, I’m not. I honestly just feel that Cormyr is the best country and the other countries aren’t as good. That used to be called patriotism.

When my ass was 25 years old I joined the Purple Dragon Knights and at 35 I was recognized as a legit Paladin in the Church of Torm. My parents were killed by Demons and I was raised by humans as a result. I hail from the most exceptional nation on the face of Toril, and until recently I resided in the shining city on a hill that is Suzail. My life has been an example of overcoming adversity with style, grace, and Inspirational fortitude. Anything I can do to illuminate the human condition.

I changed the face of the military forever when I became the first dwarven knight. I was handed the keys to the kingdom and recognized by the Azoun family. Bounty Guild deals. Endorsements by the slickest Sembian Merchants. Everyone wanted a piece of my shit. Just a man with a mind for victory and an uncanny ability in combat. But sometimes when you bring the thunder, you get lost in the storm. The Demons who killed my parents set me up on a series of unfortunate events that led me to be relocated to the arm pit of Faerun. The Unapproachable East. Which isn’t as bad as it sounds, and in the end I went willingly as my brother and I actually know some people who reside in the UE. They are good people. We met our friends Sandru and Koya when they came through on their caravan trip to the West, even had an adventure they helped out with. We have stayed in contact through the years, sending packages, and so on. And what a obstacle to overcome in traveling to that dangerous region…

But a true champion, face to face in his darkest hour will do whatever it takes to rise above. A man fights, fights, and fights some more. Because surrender is death, and death is for pussies. And my ass ain’t no pussy. My ass is a fucking champion.

Hail Mutha Fucking Torm.


Sandru (Friendship; Score 7) – He was my wing man for several months when we first met. We just hit off. Hes a real scoundrel, but one you cant help but like. We had some good times and are true friends. The guy on the inside is solid gold and he just keeps the swagger on the outside going as a matter of reputation. I understand that. We got into some trouble though, but we also saved a few lives too…the trouble? There was an incident with a Cormyrian Nobles twin daughters…Just ask their mom, which kind of compounded it too. Yeah, and if Lord Williams wants to talk shit some more then he can go fuck himself because those charges were dropped.


Been in Nyth for three years now. I finished a two year gig for Corymr and I have spent the past year working with the local Hunter’s Guild. (Bounty Guild) I have seen some crazy shit in the past year. Saving people, Hunting things. The family business. And now its not just me and my brother but our friends Sandru, Koya, and this HUGE awesome MF Warlug. I just like saying his name. WARLUG! He has really helped us out by tracking down our enemies. I will tell you this guy, he is a bear. He could eat a bear I think! Damn… I’m in a good place. Were doing good by others. Im surrounded by friends and family. Oh yeah, it doesn’t hurt to be this awesome either.
Hail F’N Torm.

Koya (Association; Score 3) -She is one of the coolest ladies I have met. Always has something interesting to point out, but not in a smart ass know it all manner. I have a lot of respect for the lady. And you will too, or shell cast a spell that will make you kick your own ass. Wouldn’t that be fun to watch…
