About Ovirid Thorvirson
As with any young dwarf, Ovirid was trained as a warrior, but it became obvious to his superiors that his constant tinkering was something their community could benefit from. He was excused from military service and apprenticed to a pair of traveling tinker gnomes who taught him a great deal about traps, locks, and other mechanisms.
His lessons lasted several years and he enjoyed them greatly, but when he returned home, it was to a community decimated by invasion and disease. When he reached the gate, he found his old sergeant, who refused him entrance. "Lad, ye're family's all gone. Yer ma was one of the first to go to Torag's forges after the disease hit. Yer da and brother fought to heal the stricken until they were overcome, too. They're heroes, boy. But the disease is still within our 'alls -- I cannae let you in after all your family's been through. Go, find another dwarven hall to have you, and do your family proud."
The grief-stricken dwarf didn't even know where to find another dwarven hall that wasn't connected to his former home. He turned from the gate and wandered blindly for a time, coming across a camp circled by colorful wagons. The halflings were only too happy to have him, and Ovirid found himself, quite by accident, with a foster family. He decided he would thereafter be Ovirid Thorvirson, to honor his father, Thorvir Stoneson.
He has traveled with them for a time and learned even more from them, but is starting to yearn for dwarven company. So when he heard a rumor of a dwarven community near "that Keep o' Kerrigan's," he wished his halfling "brethren" well and set out on his own to find the Keep or a caravan headed that direction.
After spending some time in the Cinderlands aiding some dwarven brethren regain possession of an ancient dwarven citadel, he tried to settle down, but found himself wanting to see more of the world. Wishing his new friends well, he traveled from the Cinderlands to the coast where he encountered an old friend from his days with the halfling caravan.
The human, a Pathfinder, was on his way back to Sothis. Ovirid went along and found himself on a expedition into the desert to find legendary pyramids of ancient pharoahs. He left the pyramid with a blindfold and a 5000-year-old curse, but he's confident of his new friends - the curse will be lifted.
