Nordic/Viking Music - Vinterns Drom
Torin Gemheart is a dwarf born in the stronghold of Kazarek, one of many dwarven cities throughout the reaches of the known world. While not the youngest, he is a younger son in a number of Clan Gemheart, a minor noble family within the realm.
A family of smiths, merchants and warriors, Torin has followed their calling, only rather than focusing his efforts and works at home, has taken his talents topside. Above ground is where he spends most of his time.
A staunch supporter of his clan, albeit with a penchant for adventure, Torin believes that the best way he can do his part for family and his city is to venture throughout the lands surrounding his home of stone. So he does, and he brings the axe in his hand instead of the bow.
On his forehead is a tattoo of a black heart. He took this as his personal signet in tandem with his nickname, 'Torin the Blackheart'. It just as much serves as his symbolism of his clan, the Gemhearts, whose official sigil is a purple gem, otherwise an amethyst.
He has a scar beneath his right eye. How did he get it? Ask the guy!
Skills and Abilities
Smithing: He creates and shapes his own weapons and armor
Merchant: He buys and sells a portion of what he makes
Despite an otherwise gruff countenance, Torin's smile is simply often delayed. The Blackheart is a rather happy man, and therein lies the contradiction of his moniker. He has a heart to serve others, family and other beings, but isn't afraid of getting his hands dirty if it means putting enemies to shame.
