The Rise and Fall of Glamorfell
Dwarven Paladin of Torag
Baylin is a dwarf who is hard to miss. He has Flaming red hair which clashes terribly with his Green colored Full Plate armor and Large Steel Shield. He Clanks and Clanges with every step or movement, he doesn’t tip-toe around. He smokes a very large pipe and the smoke engulfs him and those around him as he exhales
Baylin travels with a donkey by the name of Toby. Toby is neither the biggest or strongest donkey around but he is loyal and sturdy and “takes no shit from anyone”. Baylin raised Toby from when he was a baby. As such, Baylin is very protective of Toby and will go out of his way to keep him safe.
Despite this, Baylin is actually very reserved, he only speaks when he has something to say but he is also very passionate about what he believes. Baylin is very confident in his ablility’s and never gets rattled or panics.
Baylin’s equipment is immaculatly taken care of. Anyone seeing Baylin would have a sense that this dwarf has seen many battles.
A Dwarven Waraxe rest comfortably on his right hip and appears to be his main weapon. Among his possesions is a strange looking hammer with a long handle. The head is in the shape of a Cryosphinx (like a regular sphinx but with the head of a ram). This is a family Heirloom from Baylin’s Grandfather Jarlak Ironheart, who aquired it on an adventure in Osirion.
