Kelaryn's adopted father Baern Stonehammer was the son of Durgeddin and his last heir. Baern knew little of his father or his homeland as he left his father's stronghold when he was just a young lad. In his stories, he told Kelaryn of his home, Khundrukar and once upon a midnight dreary; he told her of his banishment from it. He told her of how his father had him sent away in a great swarm of sorcery, he told her that his father sent him to Hârn of all places. Often Baern looked to his mantle where the Black Maul rested and remembered his past. Occasionally, he'd take the maul and view its side before returning it, remarking that he missed the stone door of Khundrukar. Áthulus, where Baern built his forge and raised his adopted daughter, was a nothing little town that offered little in the way of education for the two outsiders, especially a young pointed eared little girl.
