Kranzer stands 4 feet tall and weighs 167 lbs. He wears his hopeknife concealed beneath the folds of his studded leather armor and carries the majority of his equipment in his ratty backpack that he used when on patrol.

The only child of itinerant dwarven traders, Kranzer Kraken-Maw has known sacrifice in many forms throughout his life. When Kranzer was only a babe, the trading party that his family called home were set upon by orcs near the Hold of Belkzen. The orcs were routed by a company of Lastwall soldiers, but the battle had moved away from the site of the ambush, and the baby that was Kranzer was left alive in the wreckage and lay for two days before a patrol from Trunau found him and took him in. When Kranzer was of age, and given his hopeknife, he joined the Trunau patrols himself and was forced to use the blade on a wounded comrade not once, but twice, to avoid having them know the horrors of being captured by orcs. A deep hatred of orcs broils within Kranzer, but even deeper, is a commitment to his home town.

In his downtime, he plays cards at Cham Larringfass's Ramblehouse, and always tries to cheat. His conscience nearly always gets the better of him when he is successful, though, and he returns any ill-gotten gains back the next morning. One traveler that Kranzer cheated, an adventurer alchemist, did not take kindly to this and attempted to poison Kranzer in the night, but due to his hardy nature, Kranzer resisted. An odd chemical reaction occurred in the pit of his stomach, though, which made Kranzer's breath utterly vile when he woke up the next morning and thereafter. His breath is particularly odious when burping, as he is like to do when drunk. He is able to mask the odor nowadays with chewing soap, but it did not stop him from being branded with the moniker Kraken-Maw about town.

Kranzer has recently likened himself as an adventurer, saying he's "Waiting for the right time to head off." Whether this is because of the townspeople using him as comedic relief for their grim lives, or simply wanderlust no one knows...
