BirthrightOrithen was the first-born son of Orithar, an esteemed captain of the Bloodbeard
berserker clan of Grimforge. The baby was strong and healthy, hopes for him were
high. And yet as every other lad found the fire of his rage -- whether triggered
by pain, a memory, or even the sight of a squirrel Orithen Bloodbeard remained
steady-headed, even-keeled, and unable to enter the blood frenzy of his kin.
Some elders suggested that the boy should be trained in the priestly service of
Odoacer with the girls, even the proud Orithar held onto hope.
But when the boy turned fourteen, his father could endure the shame no longer.
Orithen was quietly stripped of his family name and sent to live with the druids
of the Obsidian Circle, a community living in the forest at the base of the
volcano. Orithen took eagerly to the teachings and chores of this new
environment, and by sixteen was a trusted initiate of the circle. Orithen
learned of the energy that binds all life, feeling its ebb and flow like the
slow movement of lava under the mountain. As he opened his eyes and ears to the
earth below, he began to sense the dull pains of the world itself, and Orithen
finally found his anger.
The dwarf before you is squat, stout, and strange. Garbed in layers of
leather and untreated wood, he is clearly comfortable in the rough, and much

tells more of a story than the biography of most men. At its ends it the
kempt beard of a strong young dwarf, dark and robust, though slightly
lopsided from a large burn mark. At the neck, the beard is thick but wild,
and bits of twigs and leaves peek out from within the hairy depths. At the
chin, lustrous black hairs give way to the wiry gray strands of an older and
wiser man. Above the beard, the dwarf's large gray-green eyes shimmer in
