About Kelgan Cragbelly

Kelgan is a short, bald, rotund, red-bearded, pipe-smoking, whiskey-drinking, good ol boy - er, dwarf. His fingers are stained, he's missing more than a few teeth, and he smells of smoke, but his long axe is sharp and his armor well oiled. He moves like a walking wall on the battlefield, administering aid and felling foes like trees.

Kelgan hails from the Estren highlands. Like most of his clan, he grew up "redistributing" wealth from travelers. One ambush went way south when their marks turned out to be disguised guardsmen. Some of his companions died, some got away, and some got captured. Kelgan was among the latter. A few days later, after a short trial, he found himself standing on the gallows, contemplating the long drop. The garrison commander offered the condemned men a choice: enlist and help defend the frontier, or hang. To Kelgen neither option sounded great. Die now, or die later. He chose die later.

A decade later, he's still alive. The frontier has been tough, but he's managed to get training as a field medic. Distinguishing himself, he is now a lieutenant, but his criminal background means he often gets the worst assignments.

Defensive fighter. Deadeye. Polearm weilder. Tripper. First aid. Stamina. Protective of archers and casters. Distiller. Woodcarver.
