Harskgun “Daggersmith” Ironhammer, Character of Sajuuk

Harskgun “Daggersmith” Ironhammer, Warpriest of Torag
Image

Physical Description
Harskgun is of roughly average height for a dwarf, standing 4 feet tall and weighing in at a modest 171 pounds. He keeps his beard well trimmed, but opts to not keep metal rings in it as some followers of Torag do, instead choosing to wear his rings on his left hand.
Normally he wears his armored coat all the time, since he is more comfortable wearing it than more standard artisan’s clothing. To go with it, he has a matching set of studded leather pants to protect against forging accidents. In addition, he owns a set of scale sleeves to go with the armor - he hasn’t worn them since his arrival in Torch, but he keeps them maintained should they need to be donned. Though they have faded with time, he still bears the tattoos from his days as a pirate. Two bandoliers cross his chest, one of them containing 8 finely-made daggers. The other bandolier holds his lighter (a souvenir of his trip up the Seven Tears River to Torch), assorted tools, and several cigars.
He is always armed with his knife ‘Foe-Stabber,’ a single-edged dagger of high quality he crafted for himself as a rite of passage, it’s blade engraved with ornate designs of Torag battling orcs and trolls, and a portion of it’s pommel is hollowed and contains papers that are inscribed with prayers to Torag. An additional piece of gear he always carries is a well-made iron warhammer, the hammerhead engraved with designs of Torag hard at work at a forge - this is Torag’s holy symbol, and Harskgun prefers to not hit anything with it except his anvil.
From his belt hangs the warhammer and his metal-bound copy of Hammer and Tongs: The Forging of Metal and Other Good Works (Torag’s holy text), along with additional tools, and his canteen.

Social Description
Harskgun seems gruff to most people, but that is also how most people describes dwarves in general. The truth is he is gruff, and as much as he enjoys his life in Torch he finds that most of the inhabitants ‘think too quickly’ (in a manner of speaking) - a statement he uses to describe many non-dwarven folk. They’re quick to judge, quick to act, quick to fight, and of course - quick to buy his craftsmanship. To his friends, he’s not as gruff, especially once he’s had a few pints of ale. Whether he is actually falling under the sway of alcohol or just pretending to do so for the amusement of his compatriots he leaves up in the air, but the fact that he remains just as alert as ever while drinking suggests its just a show.

Sayings
“Stone endures,” “Metal endures,” “Dwarves endure”
“The hand with the hammer shapes the future”
“Hops and water is not beer!”
“Shields? Shields are for tall folk and defensive lines!”

Backstory
Harskgun was an impetuous youth, and didn’t originally want to be a smith - instead choosing to run away for some time to be a pirate. During this time, he developed an appreciation for fine cigars. After a few years he received word that both his parents had been killed in a cave-in and his 3 siblings needed him to come back home to the Five Kings Mountains. Before he could make his decision, the pirate group he was part of was rounded up by the authorities, and he passed himself off as a priest of Torag who had been captured by them to escape punishment. This deed would later haunt him, as he never found out what happened to the pirates, and he devoted himself to Torag to make the most of his somehow-successful lie.
Worked as a smith for his older brother for a few decades, became ordained as a priest of Torag, then heard of the mysterious flame of Torch, to the north of the Five Kings Mountains, in Numeria. Announcing he would find out of this flame was a blessing from Torag, he departed the Five Kings Mountains and headed north, taking the Sellen River north to the West Sellen River, and then taking that north to the Seven Tears River which led him to Torch. Setting himself up as a smith, he works metals with the fires of the Torch on Black Hill, and believes that it is a blessing from Torag. When the wizard Khonnir Baine arrived several years ago, Harskgun was one of the people who was pleased by the arrival of another skilled worker, especially one with Khonnir’s talents, and befriended the wizard.
Harskgun makes his living in Torch by working metals, both mundane and exotic, that are brought to the town by people looking to have them crafted into weapons. Lacking his own shop, he uses the rolling structures on Black Hill or rents space from Khonnir to do his work. He occasionally sells some of his fine hand-rolled cigars to people in the marketplace.
Harskgun is worried that his good friend Khonnir has met with some trouble in the depths of the Black Hill, and is eager to join any group that goes in search of him. He bears no love for the Technic League, and thinks that Golarion would be better off if they ceased their domineering control over the technological bounty that lies under Numeria.

As I said in a now deleted post, I've scrapped the calistrian idea and made a cigar-smoking Dwarf warpriest of Torag instead. And purged all the old posts from this thread.
