BACKGROUND and DESCRIPTION
Long ago, a band of dwarves emigrated from the Iron Hills. They ended up on what would one day be the northern edges of Midgard, settling there more for lack of energy to continue on than a desire to stay. Their "colony" would surely have perished between the cold and the hostiles, were it not for the whole-hearted assistance of the humans already living in the region. The dwarves and humans got along well — their fighting styles complemented each others, and their enemies were common — so well, in fact, that they intermingled in almost every way. The emigrants began worshipping the gods & goddesses of the humans, the Teutonic Norse, increasing to the point that the dwarven gods, though recognized and acknowledged, are almost an academic matter now. This point alone has caused a scism and even great animosity between the Midgardian dwarves and the Iron Hills. The former have no clan name, and are almost seen as traitors.
Thudain was born with the promise of great size and power, and has fulfilled that promise and then some. Wisdom was also granted him, and he decided at an early age that his destiny was a long-term project: to unite his nameless clan with the Kingdom of the Iron Hills. It was obvious to him that only a respected leader could accomplish this task, and that respect would have to be earned the hard way. He would learn, and hopefully master to at least a small degree, as many dwarven abilities as possible over many years before he would even try to join the two peoples. He hopes to honestly win the admiration of one group for his fighting deeds, another for his smithing capabilities, another for his civic works, others for his successes as a cleric and others as a ranger. He has spent some time learning skills such as Public Speaking and Diplomacy so that he can be persuasive when he wants to.
He is nearing middle age now (one hundred twenty years old). He fights the frost giants from the northern outposts for ten years, then takes five years off to adventure, learn, train, or maintain skills he might have first practiced decades ago. He has been following this regime for fifty-five years, and has just completed a ten-year tour of duty at Fort Rifkin when he received a holy communication that he should join the New Balance … at least for a while.
