Bio:

“I was just a lad, seeing the world for the first time, going for a walk that is, when this huge thing, I’m not sure what it was even to this day, emerged from the earth intent on making me it’s next meal. Now I may be a dwarf, but I ain’t stupid, I ran as fast as me little legs could go, but I could not outrun this beastie. It kept after me until my legs ran out of steam and I couldn’t run anymore. It had me backed up against a rock, nowhere to go, so I closed my eyes and started to pray, to Moradin I thought, but then there was a blast of air and a rushing sound, like water thundering down a mountain and I was knocked flat on my face.

When I rolled over and opened my eyes I saw something I will never forget. The beastie was gone! A great silver dragon, it can only have been a dragon, too big and silvery to be anything else, was currently dismembering and devouring it, about 100 feet above me! In the air! While flying! I rubbed my eyes to make sure I wasn’t seeing things, even checked my head for bumps, but there it was. My intended devourer was itself a meal. I watched in awe as the creature finished its meal, looked at me for a second in what I swear was amusement, then turned on its wing and flew off into the distance. An object glinting in the sun caught my eye and not ten paces from me was a dragon scale, big as a large shield. I picked it up reverently, it was lighter than I expected, and carried it back home, my heart finally slowing and the daze lifting.

When I got home, my parents were frantic at my story, barely able to believe I had survived so miraculously. I was clutching the scale to me and would not let anyone touch it.

The next morning I joined the Order of Bahamut and spent the last ten years becoming a Paladin. I believe the dragon was a messenger from Bahamut, leading me to my destiny.

In my spare time I attempted to forge the scale into a usable shield, my family are great smiths and luckily I have the gift too, but all my attempts failed, it resisted everything I tried, almost as if it had a will of its own. No one knew what to do with a dragon scale, the beasts themselves are rare enough, not one scale has been obtained in the entire history of my clan.

So I find myself on a quest for knowledge, what do I need to be able to use this scale, to shape into a tool to do Bahamut’s will?

I graduated 6 months ago, took my leave of my parents and now find myself on the road, unsure of where to look, but determined to pass this test Bahamut has set me.”
