Kingdom of Isles
Dwarven Zen Archer
Dur’star was raised in Dwarfwatch beneath the Great Beacon by his father, one of the Guardians of the Beacon who is solemnly sworn to provide light and guidance to the lost souls of the world, and create order from the chaos of the world. His father is a monk, and raised Dur’star in a life of mediation and deep contemplation. Dur’star sees taking his father’s place as a Guardian of the Beacon to be his eventual destiny. Recently Dur’star has reach an age where he must leave his solemn life and go into the world, to learn and grow. He, like many of the Keepers, trained in the use of the bow to defend the Great Beacon and Dwarfwatch from on high. Because of his upbringing in solitude, his social skills are dirt poor – he’s shy, reserved, not charming. But he is wise beyond his years, and knows full well how to judge situations for what they are. He is slim for a dwarf, but very muscular and quick, and is learning to focus his mind to make his body do amazing feats.
