This story is not mine. Many winters have passed, and an icy mist within obscures my memory. This story belongs to my father, and told to me only once as he wept with despair, just before he vanished into the deeps, never to be seen again.
My father was a Maker, whose reputation for working with precious metals and gemstones had spread far beyond the borders of his homelands. Wonders of the greatest order arose from his forge, and many rich and powerful of all races would travel far to obtain them. His kinsmen and family, and especially my mother, felt great pride that perhaps the greatest craftsman in all the lands worked his forge in theirs.
It happened one late winter that a star-stone fell into our lands out of a crystal-blue sky. The stone was gifted to my father by the king himself, out of respect, and the renown my father had brought to our clan. My mother, ever the practical dwarvish family matron, suggested my father turn his Maker’s eye to the stone, and create a marvel that no prince, duke, or king could resist. And so he set his mind to work, but the answers did not come quickly. Months passed, and then almost year, and still the stone sat on a bench, unworked. Then on the anniversary of the stone’s fall, a light came into his eye, and work on the stone began in earnest. A perfect sapphire was ordered and the king’s own jeweler delivered it to the forge. As the marvel took form, all other work was set aside as my father was driven to complete his masterpiece.
And then, one month later, as rapidly as the work had started, the echo of hammer and tool in the forge ceased and my father proclaimed the work was done. My mother asked of him which king would be worthy of such, and my father smiled. “No king, my dearest, but a queen…” and he placed his finest work, a necklace of immaculately crafted star-stone links with a perfect sapphire set into an impossibly detailed setting, around her neck.
It is here where the story wavers, or perhaps it is the storytellers. Word of the star-stone necklace had spread far…far enough to reach the ear of the Frost Giant chieftan, Magarg, who desired the marvel for himself. The tale recounts that it is about this time when the giant and his sub-chieftans came upon my parents as they exited the forge, and demanded the necklace for himself. My mother with her warrior’s practicality understood their disadvantage and relinquished the treasure, but my father, unable to easily relinquish the symbol of his love cried in rage and charged Magarg. It is here, the story says, that my mother absorbed the great blow meant for my father, and she breathed her last as the giant strode off into the night with his prize, laughing.
It is said I might have been at the forge that night, witness to those events, but I do not remember them. I do remember what came after. My father was broken; his Maker’s eye was blinded to the hidden design that inspired his work. And though for a year, before that day he walked into the eternity of deeps, he tried to find what he had lost, he was scarcely able to find it within him to repair an axe or shoe a mule. I did not understand then, and perhaps I still do not, but I do know that my destiny does not lie at the forge or in the deeps. It lies in the outside world on the peaks, and in the crystal-blue sky. And one day I will find the creature that murdered my mother, and sentenced my father to die.
