About Ivar Stonewrought

Appearance:

Spoiler:

At 4'5" and 199lbs, Ivar is tall for a dwarf. He has brown eyes, dark brown hair and a remarkably short (for a dwarf) beard, which he refers to as a sign from Trudd.

Personality:

Spoiler:

Ivar is a study in contrasts; he is intelligent but he is also gruff and brusque. He is a trained warrior, who has dedicated his life to violence in defense of his people, but he is also sophisticated and learned in many topics, especially Dwarven religion and history, as well as engineering. He seeks always to prove that he is a true dwarf, despite his un-Dwarven beard.

Background:

Spoiler:

Ivar was born in Chesed, where dwarves of his family have lived for thousands of years, since the Quest for Sky, or so the stories go. Growing up, Ivar showed unusual intelligence, and his alchemist mother thought he might become an alchemist as well, or maybe even join the Technic League and unlock the Silver Mount's secrets. Ivar, though, only ever truly cared about faith. The older he grew, the more devoutly he worshipped the old gods of the dwarves.

As he approached manhood, his beard grew in, but was remarkably short, a most un-dwarven feature that make the young adult Ivar an object of ridicule among the dwarves of Chesed. His mother sought alchemical remedies, but Ivar refused them all, insisting that this was a sign from Trudd, that he was marked by the strongest of all dwarf gods. He then left Chesed for the first time, trekking to Highhelm to train as a paladin.

Years later, he returned a fully-trained paladin, only to learn that in his absence, his parents had been among several dwarves killed in a skirmish with the Technic League at a dig site. Since that day, Ivar has always been extremely suspicious of the League, and watched them carefully, looking for the right time to avenge his parents. He spent most of the years since in Chesed, occasionally venturing out with one or another dwarf group, ever the protector. It was in this way that he first learned to fight robots, the metal monstrosities that roam Numeria's wastes. Eventually, though, Ivar grew tired of the constant flow of ever-less-pious "crusaders" passing through Chesed en route to the Worldwound. He was just as tired of the dwarven merchants cheating them. He doubted that either Dranngvit or Kols would care for such impiety. Having heard of the miraculous purple flame of Torch and its effectiveness as a forge, he decided to seek it out, wondering if it might be some sign from the old gods. He has spent the last decade or so in Torch, finding the community to be refreshingly honest, compared to the big city of Chesed. He has spent long hours talking with Khonnir Baine about the nature of the Numerian skymetals and Robots, and has become ever more effective at fighting them. Now he worries for his missing friend, and has volunteered to join the latest party that is searching after him.
