Champion Burdyr Donderiall (a.k.a. Arsandil) (he/him)
I do not know that I can ever show you how much of a blessing you are upon me, and yet, I find the challenge encourages me to try - in every way I could possibly think to.Burdyr Donderiall is a dwarven warpriest of Torag from Gildómar. He served in the Gildón military for a number of years, and like many others, lost both his father and husband, Zanditir Donderiall, to war's icy grasp. He left Gildómar late in 5626 to join the on their mission to stop the Harp of Virtue and was swiftly named as Champion of Torag for his bravery. He has formed an incredibly close bond with Scion and Champion Talindë Ae'tharis of Galasthin, and after Talindë's near-death in Eckehart Mansion, has begun a deep, intense relationship with him despite both their pasts. Due to necessary political intervention, the elves of Galasthin believe the two to be officially engaged - in reality, the two have yet to have that discussion. Burdyr is one of few mortals to have courted the respect of multiple avatars. The avatar within the Sceptre of Aetharis grants him a deep level of respect, often lending her aid or amused commentary when he and Talindë are visiting her, and has entreated the planetary avatar of Istralar to intervene on Burdyr's behalf in the past. Azsire, avatar of Jäätta, has also come to consider Burdyr as a friend - one of precious few people to ever earn that title from him - though the respect he grants Burdyr is not nearly as obvious.
Early lifeBefore , before the wars, before everything; There was a dwarf. A redheaded, rebellious scamp that defied all order imposed on him, by his school, his parents and any other authority that dared temper his spirits. Burdyr Donderiall was a menace by every definition, and boy did he make sure everyone knew it. His mother especially, Greynshal Donderiall, made an active effort to thwart his attempts to defy her authority. Being a cleric and nurse at heart, she could command armies if she truly put her mind to it-- Childhood friends of Burdyr will oft recall making a hasty exit to avoid her fury after depositing her son at their doorstep after one too many alcoholic beverages, lest she drag them by their ears to their own parents.
