Dungard Forgeheart was born to Durrik and Faldris Forgeheart during a long hot summer night that seemed like it would never end. The heat of the day and night caused my mother to pass out as she was walking down the stairs in our house. The fall caused a huge gash in her forehead and forced her into labor. Dungard was born safe but not without the cost of his mother. Early life was a blur of different wet nurses and teachers. Shortly after I was old enough to dress myself, hold my bowels and take simple commands my father knowing nothing better as career military man began a constant stream of combat and military strategy training. I soaked it up and I loved every minute of it as I grew older.
When I was old enough to be enrolled I was enrolled in the Dwarven Military Academy of Overlook. There I quickly excelled and was placed in the elite class group known as Moradin’s few. After graduating from the military I took my position in the Dwarven army and was assigned to the 212th infantry 23rd platoon “The Far Striders”.
At first no one questioned my rank as a simple PFC my skills showed I was perfectly capable solider. But I quickly progressed in rank to the ire of my fellow soldiers who under their breath would curse nepotism and curse my family’s name. After reaching rank of First Lieutenant and taking control of the Far Striders the complaints stopped being from just the lower ranks and started coming from my superior officers.
As we enter our adventure I stand discontent with my treatment and I’m beginning to question my sudden increase in rank. Could it be Durrik pulling strings? It better not be, or he and I will have words about not letting me forge my own way.
Facts: I have a scar on my right calf from slipping down a sharp rock in the academy. it runs basically from my knee to just above the Achilles tendon.
I have a birth mark on my lower left back that has the shape of a tall shield.
I love reading the history of “insert famous battle here my father commanded”
I absolutely hate fresh berry juice, the sweet flavor makes me gag. I’d much rather have the abundant dwarven ale.
Despite being a dwarf I seem to find elven women INCREDIBLY attractive, although I’ve never told anyone that in fear of being persecuted and have resigned myself to one day finding a typical “good dwarven woman” to make my wife.
Desires: To prove he is his own man and doesn’t need his fathers intervention to become a strong powerful warrior
To one day lead a combat group through a key battle and thus placing himself in a history book like his father.
To eventually marry (see above) and have his own children. And maybe on the side some how meet an elven woman for a little something something on the side.
Has always wants to travel beyond the vale and see the world and fight all it has to offer.
