Personal history

Dimble Cloak was born in the capital of Kevarim, Safir, to a middle class family. His father was a scientist for the Tinker Enclave working mostly on magical powered automatons. Dimble's mother on the other hand was a doctor who had even studied in Mervidel. Although they were not rich in comparison to the ruling trading families of Kevarim they still had a nice house in the better parts of the capital. During his childhood the ever curious Dimble would often sneak into his fathers lab to find out what he was doing. Eventually this curiosity developed into Dimble eavesdropping on many conversations of his parents or their colleagues. Since he had some knowledge of illusion magic Dimble often used illusions to pull pranks on people.    When he was a bit older Dimble's curiosity took a turn for the worst. In Safir there is a problem with counterfeits. After confronting a counterfeit love potion merchant Dimble was followed by several mob members. Luckily Dimble managed to escape using illusion magic.   Eventually Dimble decided to study at the Keepers in Adroon.  Dimble did get good grades here but was not able to contain his curiosity. After sneaking into the off limit section of the Adroon Library he was eventually caught. The Keepers decided to put him on a different learning track and invited him to become a Shadow Sage. Here he would be able to use his sneak and eavesdropping abilities to the fullest, procuring hidden information for the Keepers.


Dimble studied at the Keepers University in Adroon which has the largest library in Niorath. Here he studied all kinds of course but was especially fond of history, arcana and languages. He improved his illusion abilities a bit but eventually decided to specialize in the history of Gnomes and especially the ancient Gnome Empires. As extra courses he decided to learn Draconic and  Farlian Elvish.


Dimble is employed by the Keepers where he has the function of Shadow Sage. His job is to procure information and knowledge, if necessary through theft. In addition to searching for knowledge in the more civilized places he was also trained to search through ruins and deal with the necessary dangers if they arise.

Morality & Philosophy

Dimble is first and foremost loyal to the Keepers and he believes in their ideals. He wants to maintain knowledge and make it available to everyone but also wants to keep dangerous knowledge away from the public. According to him the Keepers are only qualified to determine if the public is ready for certain knowledge. Technology should be used for the greater good, but sometimes it can be dangerous depending on the user. If there is risk that something can be used in a malevolent way he tries to get it to the Keepers.   Violence is no problem for Dimble as long as it is necessary, he does not like unnecessary violence and will try to get what he wants with deception and negotiation first.   He is rather suspicous of power and thinks that there should be more control over it or at least seperation of power.
