Choztu Spellshard, an odd dwarf indeed, has had a thirst for knowledge ever since he could read. Being the son of the clan Lorekeeper only added fuel to the flame. He spent a great deal of time pouring over old tomes and scrolls, particularly the ones pertaining to the planes of existence and world history. But what he gained in knowledge, Choztu lost in social graces.

When he discovered a book, entitled The Structure of Magic, this young dwarf found his true calling. He began to study magic with the clan clergy and they taught him well. It was during this period in his life that he learned of an inherent ability to resist magic. While this may have had a slight dampening effect on his arcane studies, Choztu learned to focus beyond it. In addition to learning magic from the clerics, he was also taught some tricks with a crossbow, discovering he was better at shooting things than bashing them.

But one can only read about exotic places for so long before you yearn to see them. So one day Choztu packed up his belongings and headed to the nearest city, Kaer Maga. Upon arriving, he learned of the desecration of the tombs. Enraged that anyone would defile the ancestors of anyone, the Dwarven Wizard signed up for the investigation.
