Background & Personality::
It was dark times some 54 years ago, the land was still under the control of Whispering Tyrant’s hand. My parents lived in a small community of Gnomes in Ustalav and would trade with the humans and Dwarves of the Five Kings Mountains. The night of my birth there were unnatural storms brewing as far as the eye could see. You could see the dark clouds rolling over the hills. The melovent spitits swarming over the land to feed.
The rain came in a deluge, then the lightning and last the thunder. It was so close you could feel the land groan with every flash of lightning and rumble with every crack of thunder. It felt as if Torag himself was working at his anvil. Every swing of his mighty hammer coming crashing down upon his anvil would reverbriate through the sky. The wind howled and the undead spirits shrieked throughout the night, but we survived, our little village. The devastation was horrific, the neighbouring villages were wiped out, devoured by the waiths, wights and other evil spirits. We could not believe our luck, we believed the Gods themselves had preserved us.
As a baby I was growing fast, babling incoheriently as all babies do, but as time went on I continued to speak in toungues. At first the village believed that it was just a stage, but the longer it went on the more the villagers talked. Superstitions grew, fear grew and soon our famity was ostracised within the community. It was beleived that I was possessed by one of the undead spirits from the night of my birth and that is why our village was spared, not that we had the Gods favour.
The village enders believed me to be deamon possessed and ruled I my life forfeit. My parents had no choice, they had to give me up. My father said he would do it himself and took me out to the hills. But he couldn't and left me near the road to Five Kings Mountains.
It was hear at the age of 4 that the Gods smiled on me once more. A dwarven armour merchant came upon me and through the good grace of Torag took me home to his clan. I grew there with his family and it was there in the great iron temple of Torag that I first began to understand the voices in my head. Angradd and Kols they called themselves angels of Torag.
Years later my adopted father requested Petros Lorrimor to visit to see if he could assist with my condition. It was Petros (or Teacher as I would call him) who discovered my affinity with metal. He saw that the more metal that was close to my being, the more clarity my mind had. And from that day forward I would carry metal on my person at all times. It allowed me to function normally in social situations, but more importantly allow me to understand Angradd and Kols.
Years later my adopted father said it was Torag that saved my village that night, that is was he who kept the spirits at bay. He said that when Torag decides to interveen, he has a reason.
