Bio:

WIP

Ideals:

  • If we want to change our fate we needs to use our wits not our fists
  • A dwarf can stand as tall as any man or elf if only they’d raise their heads
  • The stones of the past must build a road to the future, not sit and gather moss by the wayside. Even the oldest mountains cannot stand unchanged by the passage of time.

Flaws:

  • Doesn’t like telling outright lies, she prefers half-truths or #exactwords
  • Can be overly defensive of others questioning her path or her skills
  • Conversely, very critical of her own failings

Background:

  • 4th generation dwarvern immigrant to Catarina, has never known anything but the city’s streets. Growing up in Catarina taught her hard practicality and bitter lessons that sat starkly at odds with her parents teachings.
  • Rebelled against the idea that her great great grandfather’s grandfather should be telling her how to live when he’d be dead 5 minutes after stepping out the door in Catarina. (Not that he would, of course, step out the door. That would mean going above ground.)
  • Believes in change through the betterment of self, knowledge and progress rather than throwing out the old traditions altogether. Being a Catarinan dwarf, but still being a dwarf.
  • Almost entirely self-taught.
  • Sees herself as something of an aspiring community leader.
  • Popular with some of the younger dwarves (and indeed non-dwarves) but equally at odds with others. Opinions of her tend to be fairly polarised, but she doesn’t go out of her way to rile up those that don’t share her views. Usually.
  • Often works in [dwarf themed pub] to earn her keep
