Dorgan, son of Dorgamond, of the clan Halfshield, is new to the adventuring game. His clan's dwarves are known for being struck with wanderlust like a fool halfling* and now, it is Dorgan's turn to see the world.
He started life as a thief-taker but, the dwarven race being mainly composed of Lawful folk, quickly moved into the lands of Men seeking more lucrative employ. Spending time as a bouncer, caravan guard, even a tax collector, brought him some coin but no personal satisfaction**. Carrying not much besides the possessions on his person and a bit of a reputation among the lesser lights of the capital city***, he's set sights on the Hinterlands for adventure and riches!
* the Halfshield name is not a literal translation from the Dwarven tongue but a derogatory slur resulting from a time when the King Under The Mountain called on his thanes for troops to expel an orc incursion and the clan had only half the required number available, due to the number of shieldbearers gone wandering, sightseeing, caravan-ing, etc...
** there's only so many times a farmer can spit on your boots before the profession of tax collection loses some of its urbane luster.
*** his appellation "the Sinister" is a reference to his left-handedness but its other meaning is useful enough for putting fear (or at least a bit of doubt) into his opponents

Dorgan's boon shall be a masterfully crafted hip flask containing a fine 40 year old Dwarfish spirit. A single nip of the stuff is enough to invigorate a weary Dwarf. There are 3 nips remaining (as of 3/16/14).
