Fargrim Splintershield

Description:
Aldus’ younger brother is an angry young dwarf who cares little for tradition and honor. He has spent a good deal of his time in Hammerfast drinking and engaging in bar brawls while his brother has tried to make the name Splintershield a respected one in the city. Fargrim had no choice in coming to Hammerfast. His father demanded the two travel to the city, where honor and glory awaited young and strong clans willing to serve the Great Church and do good. Fargrim wanted a simple mining life. Instead, he was forced to live in a place where orcs walked the same streets.
Fargrim’s quickness to anger has put him at odds with the law on occasion. His most recent altercation arose when his desire to fight, his racial hatred of orcs, and the opportunity to violently attack a priest of Gruumsh all mixed with strong drink. He was arrested, the none of the orcs being wounded too severely. Aldus had some pull with the arresting paladins, being a paladin who served as a watchman himself. He was able to have his brother released to his charge.
The brothers fought a very emotional battle, but Aldus gave Fargrim some hope. He was told that his brother had planned to move away from Hammerfast with anyone who would like to come to settle a village in the ruins of an old Nerathi castle. The thought of traveling into the wilds and facing off against the dangers of the borderlands gave Fargrim something to fight for.
When Brother Splintershield called for people to build a new town in the ruins of Castle Inverness, there was no doubt that Fargrim would be among the pilgrims. He knew that his brother would need a strong axe for hewing foes or trees to build up homes. A new sense of purpose was given to Fargrim. He would do his clan proud.
Roleplaying Notes: Fargrim can be quick to anger and is usually the first to suggest wading in and fighting apparent adversaries. This is tempered by Aldus’ presence amongst the pilgrims. He is considered gruff by most, even among dwarvenkind. He’s not much for decision making, but will usually do whatever seems right. He will almost always take his older brother’s side on things.

The Others

Belgos (Male Drow): Not much of a fan of drow. He’s like most elves you’ve ever met. He fights from a distance because he’s no good with a blade. Silly bows.
Brandis (Male Human): You’ve seen this paladin fight before. He’s knocked you down once or twice, but you were drunk. You’d do well to show him how good you are in combat so he doesn’t think you’re weak or useless.
Valanae (Female Eladrin): Another elf? Bah. Well, you can respect the idea of a warpriest because they’re at least aware of how to fight. She seems a bit gruff for an elf, too. Still not saying much.
Keira (Female Elf): Is everyone on this pilgrimage an elf?! This one doesn’t seem like she can handle herself at all. She might need rescuing.
Jarren (Male Human): What’s with all these el…oh. It’s a human. He seems stuffy and a bit too eager. If he can use his magics to help, fine. You have no idea how that works, but it’s good someone does.
Aldus (Male Dwarf): Your brother is a great dwarf. You’re thankful for all he’s done for you and you’re glad that his quest is taking you from that stinkin’ city with all its orcs and ghosts. Maybe you can set up a bar in this new town.
Malgram (Male Half-orc): Grr. An orc? Well, a bastard of one. Aldus seems to trust this guy and he looks like he can handle himself in a fight. Doesn’t change the fact that he’s a stinkin’ green skin.
Faldyra (Female Elf): Suck an elf! What was Aldus thinking?! Where are all he dwarves in this pilgrimage? Another magic user? Sure. Great. That’s what we need. More books and smart folk.
