Klayghorum "Dirt" Dirthauler

Dwarven Rogue

Description:

Name: Klayghorum “Dirt” Dirthauler

Age: 72

Race: Mountain Dwarf

Class: Rogue

Background: Urchin

How did you come to have this class?: While many Dwarven communities have found prosperity working steam engines, the Dirthaulers and their clan have stubbornly kept to the mines, leading to some comparitively squalid conditions. Dirt left at a young age, but without interest in mining or engineering, his options were slim. His only marketable skill when he reached the city was brewing, so he works at a brewhouse for room and board. His true desire is for wealth, and he feels the ancestral and innate urge to seek treasure wherever it may be found. He is a proficient combatant after a Dwarven upbringing, and he plies this trade in somewhat regular streetfights.

*What is your character’s opinion on technology?: * He has more aptitude than the average Human but less than the average Dwarf. He sees it as a tool that can be used for good or evil, but he does hold some resentment toward it for changing the Dwarven lifestyle.

Does your character feel that the World Barrier protects the world or isolates it?: He finds it isolating. He assumes there is a lot more treasure outside of the barrier that he can’t get to because of it.
