Gramek Hammerhand of the High King’s Royal Guard was born from the High King’s own clan in Thane Modan, Gramek was given the name Hammerhand as first born male as his father before him, and his father before him dating back to the great Urindin who was given the name Hammerhand by the High King Funrinar Fireforge after solely defending him during the Siege by Alkazamir’s orcish army many century ago. Members of the Hammerhand bloodline all join the military where their warfare and bravery would honor the name through great feats of strength and achievements.
Immediately joining the military at the age of 40 Gramek excelled in all his duties and raised quickly through the ranks proudly honoring the Hammerhand name. His service in the common army was short lived as at the age of 44 he was asked to enter into training to become a member of the Kingdom’s Elite Guardsmen Corps. As a guardsman Gramek was protector of the city where he proudly lived up to the Hammerhand name.
At the age of 65 Gramek was accepted into The High King’s Royal Guard where only the best of the Elite Guardsmen are accepted and is the highest position a non-commissioned dwarf in military service could obtain. Fulfilling his name as a Hammerhand, Gramek reached 125 years old which is the oldest one could be as a member of the High King’s Royal Guard. Retiring from service Gramek decided that since he had not become a commissioned officer his name would be tainted had he drop to a lower position in the military.
Spending the previous 80 years in the confines of the city and recently retiring from military service Gramek’s desire for adventure took him by storm. Desiring to see the world he set out to adventure where he looks to uphold his name and bring honor upon it outside the confines of the city he has protected for nearly a century.
Personal Characteristics-Long dark brownish orange hair with large braided beard. Shield has the hammer of Moradin crossed with the sword of Kord. Chestplate has the crest of Hammerhand. Cloak is very deep red outlined in a gold trim with the Fireforge royal seal on it (which is worn by all Royal Guards). Hammer which is handed down from one Hammerhand to the next was wielded by Urindin and has an inscription in dwarven runes on the handle written by High King Funrinar that’s loosely translated “May Moradin give me the power to protect those I love, and smite those who oppose.”
