Dûrgrimst Athoon zana
Dûrgrimst Athoon zana The Law Speakers The Members of this clan, have perhaps the most important task of any other clan, that does not produce Verold. They are charged with preserving the stories of Dwarven kind, The Dwarves believe that their stories must be passed down from word of mouth, as to write it down could lead to someone trying to steal their history from them. It is the Job of the Hallan to learn the stories of each Clan, and the stories of the past. so any young aspiring Hallan, must spend several years learning these stories from the clans. A Harsh Task The Primary task of a Hallan, is to learn all of the stories of the Dwarven people, and pass these stories to the young of the Clans, they are entrusted to teach the younger generations of their stories and histories. The Second Job of the Hallan, is the role they play in Government, they are the Law Speakers, for they relay information from the Clans and the Brenin halag, to the people so that all may know what is going on at all times. The Function of the Hallan is vital to the continuation of the Dwarven people as a civilized society, for they believe should they stop telling their stories they will become unrecognizable from the monsters they defend the world from. as such this is the reason that the Hallan are revered almost like the Verold. This is by no means an easy task but an important one none the less. Since this clan does not produce any Verold, all of the clan are expected to become Hallan, any who fail to live up to the standards of being a Hallan are branded as Novott and sent to Clan Edaris to be put to work, as they do not want them leaving the Dwarven realm where they might reveal the history of the dwarves to outsiders. Halag, Astrid Athoon Zana An ancient dwarf by all measures, some believe her to be in her 600th year. Others believe she is the sister of the Halag of Dûrgrimst Edaris because of how old she is and how old he is rumored to be. Astrid, takes her role as Matriarch very seriously and insists that every Hallan know all of the stories, just as she does. She is also the Advisor of the Brenin Halag. Astrid took it upon herself for the betterment of all, that her clan should not be allowed to rule, as they are best to serve as an advisor to the Brenin Halag so they do not forget the past, and this would keep her Clan from becoming corrupt on the thought of power. Astrid is described as an old Crone of a Dwarf, with her physical age she seems smaller then most dwarfs, and does not walk. She silently floats, using magic where she needs to go, as such this had lead to many accidental scares of other Dwarves that she finds hilarious. she has very thin white hair that is kept in a messy knot most of the time, her skin is pale white as she does not seem to get out to the surface too much. her skin is covered in liver spots and she is known when to have a cackle when she laughs. Noone knows the truth but many suspect a strange relationship between the Dûrgrimst Athoon Zana, and Edaris, the Halag of these two clans.
