Character Information Edit
Braddock was born in the clan halls of the Mror Holds to a clan aligned to House Kundarak. He was hearty enough at a young age to be initiated into the Iron Gatekeepers training. He spent his whole life in the lands of the Mror Holds. He did not fight in the Great War and knows only of the Mournland by rumor and records.
The Iron Gatekeepers, to which Braddock found himself serving, are charged with the vital mission of monitoring the deep chasms below the Mror Holds to ensure no beings from Khybor follow the dwarves to the surface. In addition, the Gatekeepers protect the treasures vaults of House Kundarak deep underground. As he aged, Braddock never developed the strength and power of his brethren necessary for most guard activities, but due to his quick mind and predisposition for academia, he became one of the trap masters of the Iron Gatekeepers. In particular, Braddock set, tested, and monitored the traps around the House Kundarak vaults.
It was during this time, monitoring the traps in the Kundarak vaults, that Braddock first felt the pull of a powerful presence. Only when alone, Braddock could feel that something powerful and close by was seeking him out, calling to him. Braddock sarted searchng for the source when he could without bringing unnecessary attention to himself. Day upon day of searching lead him deeper and deeper into the Kundarak vaults. When at last Braddock came before an ancient and rarely used vault, he knew he had found the source. Against all protocol, he opened the vault to find a single curved wooden staff laying in a great stone table. The staff appeared older than the Holds themselves.
When Braddock touched the staff, he was nearly overcome with the images that flooded his mind. Images of Zutwa, an ancient primordial being of boundless life and power flashed into his mind. Zutwa sacrificed itself to destroy a being with a limitless power for destruction. Zutwa's power was such that a remnant of it persisted as an extraworld personae, or entity. The staff Braddock found was formed of the ancient remains of Zutwa. Enticed by the power of this entitiy, but unsure how to proceed, Braddock researched in libraries and inquired to sages for ways to communicate with long lost beings.
Unbeknownst to Braddock, when he next ventured into the vaults to find the staff, he was not alone. The call of Zutwa was also heard by a band of duegar who followed the call to the surface. In his haste, he also wasn't as careful with his mission, and some Iron Gatekeepers noticing his strange behavior, followed him to the deepest vaults. He opened the vault to stand before the staff and the duegar stepped in behind him. The Gatekeepers, with one of their leaders, Blaurath d'Kundarak, came upon the scene and a battle ensued.
Unarmed, Braddock picked up the staff. Although it took merely a moment to those watching, Braddock communed deeply with Zutwa. He entered a pact with the being to empower the entity, perhaps restore it at some point in the future, in exchange to grant some of the elemental's power to Braddock. Power flooded into Braddock as he had never yet experienced. With a roar, Braddock set into the duegar. They were defeated and slain in short order. Braddock replaced the staff, expecting to be punished severely. Blaurath, however, recognized the power Braddock could wield and instead sought to make himself an ally. Because of his heroic actions, he pardoned any possible wrong doing. He encouraged Braddock to pusue this new found power that he had discovered and to grow his abilities.
After aligning himself with Zutwa, Braddock became more aware of the powers of entities that surrounded him. In another vault, and with permission from Blaurath, Braddock found the helm of King Elldyr, a human hero and king who had won a great battle (before the kingdom of Galifar) to save his lands, but at the cost of all his kin. Braddock communed with the dormant power of King Elldyr for many weeks before accepting a pact of power with him. The combination of entitites both increased his power and improved his control over his new powers. To Braddock, becoming allied with more entities, the less each entity influenced him.
After the initial defense of the vaults, Braddock spent all his free time with Blaurath, explaining the process and how he was mastering his abilities. Braddock became a trusted ally and agent of Blaurath. Blaurath raised in power and infulence in his house. When he wasn't with Blaurath, Braddock was studying and researching more of the history of Khorvaire and the beings who came before them. He trained new initiates in trap setting and maintenance rather than doing the work himself. It was during this time, away from Iron Gatekeepers, that his colleagues started referring to him as "the Historian". The name was meant as an insult at first, but became so common, it lost it's negative connotations.
His service to Blaurath changed drastically with one event. The theft of the Kundarak vaults shocked the dwarven clans to the core. No one saw a theft as a possibility. Many artifacts were taken. Blaurath believes that those were distrubuted across Khorvaire.
His anger at a peak, Blaurath bestowed an ancient dwarven Pact Hammer to Braddock and asked him to hunt down the missing artifacts. Braddock accepted immediately. He knew that there was more to discover. Now that he had experienced the power of these entities... these vestiges... he wanted more.
Age: 65 Gender: Male Height: 4'6" Weight: 185 lbs.
Braddock is of a stout dwarven build. His hair is dark brown, almost black, short cut on top. In the back, his hair becomes long, worn loosely. His beard is thick and full and braided down the front. Like all dwarves, Braddock keeps his beard well groomed. Braddock does not have a mustache.
Under his traveling robes, Braddock wears his dark brown studded leather armor. His dark steel craghammer glints with an off colored light, even when in shadows, and appears to always be in hand. His rod is usually slipped up inside his right sleeve for eary access.
Braddock is confident and sure of himself. He is easy to approach and talks opening and honestly. He doesn't like elves, but if they are scholars, he will put this aside and seek their company as well.
Above all else, Braddock is searching for power. He will pursue relics and ruins in hopes of unearthing not money, but the remnants of powerful entities from which he can draw power.
- Braddock is loyal to Blaurath d'Kundarak and House Kundarak above all else. He would happily perform missions for them.
- He is drawn to ancient ruins, history and relics, knowing that powerful entities stir in their graves.
- Braddock would prioritize any information or leads to lost dwarven relics.
- Braddock has specifically been asked to return dwarven artifacts, no matter the source. His mission is secretive, which is why he travels alone.

Judge Comments Edit
Level 4 Edit
Approval 1 Edit
Approval from TwoHeadsBarking:
Looks pretty badass
level 5 looks good. I couldn't find any issues. - jsb420 10/5/2011
Approval from TwoHeadsBarking:
- Summary: Why aren't you listing the Deep-Pocket Cloak details, given that you included the complete properties and powers of your other items? Seems inconsistent.
- Summary: Technically, Shadow Walk triggers if you move three or more squares from your starting square. The way you have it written, it would trigger if you walked in a circle, ending where you started.
- Summary/Racial Features: Dwarven Resilience is now a power that lets you use your Second Wind as a minor action.
Minor issues, so approved.
Approved for level 5.
