Relnor's father, Felnor Ironfaar, was a battle priest in the service of Clangeddin Silverbeard's clergy. He passed down his devotion to his god and a minor amount of his medical prowess to his son. While Relnor was still young he started training with Clangeddin Silverbeard's monastic order - the Silver Monks. It was here that he honed his discipline and focus, while at the same time fostering a love for his god and kin. Relnor was not able to adopt their methods of hand to hand fighting at this time however, so he turned his mind to that of a battlefield medic, and although he could not commune directly with Clangeddin, or his other favoured deity, the god Dumathoin he showed he could patch up all but the most grievously wounded fighters on the battle field. One such fighter that he returned from the brink, started training him once again in the ways of hand to hand fighting, this sparked an interest in the still-young Relnor and much to his family's dismay, he ventured out of the realms of dwarves and travelled north, to the Spine of the World to seek more guidance. This was a mere seven years after the Ironfaar Clanhold was established and sadly it would be the last time he saw it in all it's glory or his family alive ever again.
Years passed and on his travels in the frozen north he met various clans who welcomed him as a brother, but he never stayed long. It was during one of these stays that he met a young female dwarf and fell in love. They were just about to return to Ironfaar (still unaware of it's fate), when yet again, tragedy struck. A warparty, comprised of orcs, goblins and giants, attacked by surprise and killed many of Relnor's comrades, including his love. Heartbroken, he vowed revenge on the beasts and over the next four years he exacted justice, even using methods foreign to the Ironfaar clan. Upon his victory he depicted the battle in a tattoo on the right side of his head. He then began the long journey home ...
Major - recover and resettle Ironfaar clanhold.
Minor - gain access to Ironfaar clanhold and start retrieving relics and giving dwarven kin a proper burial, especially those assumed to be family.
