From Blood and Ashes
A Barrel-Chested Former Mercenary Turned Blacksmith
Also known as: “Bar”
Quote: “Training with a sword is more than how to use it, boy. It’s more about when to use it.”
Hair: Black peppered with white
Despite his years as a mercenary, Bar prefers not to craft weapons. Living in the small village of Shale, he is rarely asked for such services and would likely never outright refuse. He has often said that “the fewer weapons floating around town, the more likely everyone will still be breathing at the end of the day.” There is a rumor that Bar has a stash of weapons tucked away somewhere, however… just in case.
During the Siege of Durnwood Keep (in Aram Mitas – Summer of 997), Bar was struck in the knee with a barbed arrow and fell on the front lines. Tonnel pulled his friend to safety and carried him back to the field chirurgeons. They managed to save the leg, but his mobility was severely hampered, forcing him to retire from the company. He still walks with a pronounced limp.
Married to Anita “Nita” Barrengard in the late Fall of 998.
