Description and History
Lordin's family once lived by one of the ancient elven kingdoms
(he could never figure out wich one, elves kept terrible records
of their dealings with humans and most of the humans at the time
didn't know how to write) somewere along the lines, one of his ancestors
married and elf (this was hundreds of years ago)and elven characteristics
pop up occasionaly in their blood lines. Such is the case with Lordin,
he is, according to his calculations, at least 1/25th elf, probably
the agile part.
At a young age, bored with life on the farm, he ran away to the

Lordin is currently working on mastering the art of enchanting
weapons, his first effort, while impressive, works only sporadically.
His workshop is well out of the small villiage he and Thorin are
currently protecting as it has a tendency to erupt in flames or
emmit toxic gases. Nevertheless, his experiments carry on undaunted.
As you can see, a ring of fire protection is necessary while
traveling with Lordin. (this is a fact that Thorin learned early
on when Lordin hurled a fire ball into a group of monsters Thorin
was engaged with, killing the monsters and greatly annoying the
