About Bromen Spellbane
Centuries ago the dwarven oracles predicted the end of the world, an end that would come in the form of arcane magic. The natural dwarven distrust of magic is routed in these prophecies, but for a few clans it became an all-encompassing obsession to prepare for this final battle. Clan Vrektel was one of those clans. Magic had its place of course – it is hard to deny the added power an enchantment can give a weapon or armor – but the clan strived hard to keep themselves ‘pure’ by following the old ways and limiting its exposure to the corrupting influence of the arcane.
On the day of Bromen's birth the clan received another prophecy: the time was at hand, and this child would be the weapon against the enemy. His father Aralak was one of the clan elders and greatly respected, and he could not have been prouder to learn that his blood would have a part to play in the coming apocalypse. That very day the preparations started - ancient divine magics were used to alter the child’s normal dwarven abilities against magic, and he was trained in ancient traditional dwarven combat. His entire life he was given a single goal: be ready to fight against spellcasters to stop the end of the world.

The First Pillar – ‘None shall stand between the Spellbane and the enemy.’
A fluid series of swings and strikes, followed by a short charge forward, using weight and momentum to knock away combatants to clear a path to the true arcane target behind them. Using Improved Overrun to get through the warriors to get to the caster behind them
The Second Pillar – ‘The Spellbane shall give the enemy nowhere to hide.’
The Third Pillar – ‘No enemy shall cast against the Spellbane.’
Not living up to expectations. Bromen spent decades being told he was the 'chosen one' but now that he's been out in the world a bit he has no idea what that means or how to do it. He feels the weight of that obligation heavily on his shoulders and it sometimes leads him to make rash decisions.....
Ironically, it is not to save the world and fulfill the prophesy. On a more personal level, Bromen's ultimate goal is to find his place in the world. He was sequestered for his training so never really felt like part of his clan. His travels in the world have shown him that his ways are a bit old fashioned so that separates him, and the fact that he always has an eye on the mission makes it hard for him to connect with any objective other than the prophecy.
At this point he is not discouraged but he is starting to believe that maybe there is more to his life than being the Spellbane.
