Chains of Torment
Rorik of Clan Goldbreaker
Duergar Chieftain & Skilled Warrior
Wielding a great Battleaxe and twin Handaxes, Rorik Goldbreaker is a formidable foe. He blends heavy attacks with Duergar magic to smite his enemies.
Born the oldest son of Harfik, the chieftain of Clan Goldbreaker and descended from Kurzak-Zha through ten thousand year old dynasty as the rulers of the Depression of Bren, Rorik lived a relatively comfortable life by the standards of the Duergar. A skilled and capable mason and warrior, he mined the hills around the Depression of Bren as his family and clan had done for generations.
After humans settled The Depression and formed the town of Brengold they made incursions into the mountains looking for precious metals and unwittingly stumbled upon the mines of the Duergar. Harfik’s people lived so far underground that they allowed this incursion to take place with little to no resistance to the humans. After 100 years though, the humans had delved so deep that regular meetings and clashes were becoming more and more frequent.
Harfik began ordering his troops to kill on sight in an effort to drive the humans back. An eye for eye, tooth for tooth war of attrition ensued in which there was never any clear winner. At the age of 203 Rorik witnessed the downfall his people as the Jhorani Emperor ordered the Baron Bargis Trim to exterminate the Clan with magic, mostly carried out by wizards from his own court. Harfik fell early on during the onslaught and it was left to Rorik to guide his tattered and ruined Clan. A guerilla campaign has effectively shut down mining operations, though the villainous Baron and Emperor remain.
Rorik is driven by fierce desire to avenge the wrongs done to his people and after all these years is willing to try anything to achieve his goals, by any means necessary…..
