Alan the Adventurer
"For those who have never met me, I was of a small stature, like many of my folk on Endaman, so the humans simply towered over me. They called me a 'dwarf', to which I asked if they had ever encountered my kind before. One of the humans said something into the ear of another. Somehow this whispered phrase was humorous to him, and soon we were all laughing." ~Alan the Adventurer, Tales of Discovery on Earth
General Physical Condition
A fit young dwarf warrior to those who knew him.
He had a brown beard of about a foot long in his youth, although he cut it much short when he became a mage.
A ravenous cave beast left him with a small scar around his left eye and across the bridge of his nose.
He was very fond of writing with his left hand even though he wielded his hammer in his right.
Apparel & Accessories
He was fond of dark, earthy colours as far as clothing was concerned.
His weapon of choice was a hammer, but an axe could be often found in his hand as well. His armour of choice was studded leather so that his speed would be less hindered.
Accomplishments & Achievements
Morality & Philosophy
He was predominantly of a good character, but he was infamous in the Gratic Empire for his mistreatment of some Hayim prisoners during the Red Rose War. He denied this.
He would often be very motivated by adventure; it's the reason he travelled to Earth in the first place, as it was unexplored by the central magical culture in those days.
Savvies & Ineptitudes
Likes & Dislikes
He harboured a distaste for dark caves and dead things. Good wine and long walks in the woods were very pleasing to him.
Virtues & Personality perks
All who met him were impressed with his wit and his attentiveness.
Vices & Personality flaws
Those same people were often put off by his love for crude jokes.
Contacts & Relations
He was known to the Gratic Empire as a soldier (albeit not a distinguished one). He is even more well-known to those who study Earth and Terran Humans, as his book is central to understanding human culture and society.
He never married or had children. His family was very poor and their names are not known.
Alan went to Dwarven ceremonies all the time as a youth, but after leaving his hold did not attend such ceremonies again.
Although he had a celebrated confidence, he was in actuality rarely seen in public - presumably by choice.
Hobbies & Pets
Writing was his main passion, but he was a warrior first. Although he lacked any discernible skill in it, he did play Frewsân often.
He was fond of using wit while speaking, but also understood the importance of listening.
Wealth & Financial state
He generally lived the poor life of a mercenary in the years before The Change. After that, he was reasonably wealthy, as his book did very well.
