Personality: Rivend is a talented artisan and master craftsman even by dwarven standards. That said, he’s an raging alcoholic. Rivend can often be found at Suar’s Tavern, drinking enough to burn down a concrete bunker, then picking fights which he tends to lose. He loves to tell stories about how he lost his eye. However, he’s never told the same story about it twice.
Favored weapon: Hammer
Favored fighting style: Inept. Fighting is not his strong suit.
Background: Rivend “One-Eye” Crackhammer was born the third son to a prestigious stone cutter and foreman in in the dwarven kingdom of Drafhour. Rivend eagerly picked up the family trade at a young age and began working with his father and 4 brothers constructing keeps and fortresses in both human and dwarven lands. His family had a propensity for alcoholism, and most of the family bonding and rituals revolved round drink. 20 years ago a viscous famine hit Drafhour and Rivend’s father fell deathly ill as a result. Due to a war in a neighboring human kingdom, Drafhour’s economy ground to a screeching halt and Rivend’s family contracting business began to flounder. With its patriarch gone and its business on the verge of collapse, The Crackhammer family split apart and went their separate ways. Rivend’s drinking problems hit the gas and began to take a serious impact on his life. Rivend drifted from town to town, looking for work as a drifter and day laborer.
