Darrok Hammerborn

Dwarf Warlord, Commando Captain - Keith in The Kings of Krell Caverns

Background

Darrok never was meant to be a king. He was never groomed in etiquette, foreign policy. He doesn't understand how to manage an economy, or lines of production. What Darrok does know, is how to ambush an orc brigade and plant an axe in the biggest orc in the bunch.

For 15 years, Darrok Brightedge faithfully served the military in Garadal. He took orders. He ate, pissed, and slept when others told him to. Eventually he worked his way up to the point that he was the man giving out those orders. He was the man molding the new wave of recruits. And he was the man out in the field protecting the interests of Garadal.

Things were fine, until a main iron mine in Garadal dug through into a massive underground cavern…and it's residents poured through. Monsters the type of which the dwarves had never fought against, beings of immense mental power. In the blink of an eye, they had swarmed through the kingdom, and disabled or killed most of the residents of the Kingdom.

Darrok used his skills to get as many out of the Kingdom and to the safety of a nearby Kingdom…Lamascus. While regrouping it was determined that Darrok was the highest ranking member of the Garadal military left alive. Bearing a plain steel crown, Darrok took up the mantle of King of Garadal, and vowed to protect his new followers, until he could reclaim their home.

In a recent siege with his fellow Kings, Darrok was convinced to use a hammer for the battle, to help obtain the grace of Moradin. Darrok was a follower of the god, but after the fall of Garadal, had strongly wavered in his faith. Darrok Brightedge died on that battlefield, slain by a hail of poisoned arrows while attempting to defeat a powerful warlock. In death, Darrok received a vision of Moradin, saying that he was still needed. Where Darrok Brightedge fell, Darrok Hammerborn arose. Reborn by faith, Darrok is more determined than ever to reclaim his kingdom, now as an instrument of his god.
