Ro Rwa Deran
A proud, devout dwarf warrior, desperately searching for his lost homeland.
This mighty warrior is a member of the Korkri Dwarves, a clan of dwarves who navigate and explore the Korkri Tunnels, a system of tunnels underneath the Baalobteir Mountains. The tunnels stretch for an estimated 15,000 miles underneath the Baalobteir Mountains, reaching depths of up to 500 miles down. Approximately 10% of these tunnels have actually been traveled by dwarf clans, and only about 2% of these travels have been mapped. The Korkri dwarves are the largest and oldest of the dwarf clans that dwell underneath the mountains, and a majority of other clans were originally part of the Korkri dwarves. The two main clans are the Korkri Dwarves and the Caitheus Dwarves. They have been rivals for thousands of years and all of the other clans split off from one of these clans originally. This dwarf has yet to recieve his name; he is still only 47 years of age, young for a dwarf (most dwarves live to be around 300 years old. The oldest dwarf in recorded history was my great grandfather, who lived to be 389 years, only dying from a wasting disease that nearly wiped out the Korkri Dwarves). When a dwarf completes his first great task, a true name and appointment within the clan is assigned to members of the Korkri Dwarves. In the era of his great grandfather, Raenor, a wasting disease nearly killed the Korkri clan, a little over 30% of the clan survived. Fortunately, this sickness also affected the Caitheus Dwarves, so only small battles have been fought since the sickness. He has only ever been to civilization three times in his life (arriving in the city was his third). He was cut off from the main group of dwarves by a rockslide, and travelled to the nearest place to resupply and search for his clan. He has just arrived in the city and is hearing rumors about a tunnel that leads into the Korkri Tunnels. He will no doubt try to locate the tunnel in the future.
