Jade Regent VA
A young dwarf not yet 70, he has dark brown hair and eyes, and his beard done in a single long braid. He wears a red and gray tabard over scale mail trimmed in copper. A greataxe serves as his walking stick, his head bent to the holy book in his hand.
Valag is the son of metalworkers from Janderhoff who dealt regularly with the caravans bringing copper from Kopparbarget. His family became close to Misha and Koya, and he and Koya played together as children, at least, until she grew quickly to adulthood (as humans do). As Valag continued his slower progression to adulthood, his focus shifted from his parents profession to the allure of warfare and campaigns. The church of Torag concerns itself with defensive warfare, but it is to Torag’s brother Angradd that the dwarves turn whenever the armies must march out to war. Being as close to the caravans as he was growing up, he couldn’t help but be fascinated with foreign lands. He was looking forward to a long life eliminating threats to Janderhoff, but then the message came from Misha that she was dying, and needed a boon from his family. His parents no longer able to travel as they once did, the obligation fell on him. It is with some worry that he has accepted the charge to look after Koya. Having secured a sabbatical from his duties in Janderhoff, he made a temporary home for himself in Sandpoint.
