Orphaned Slave

Kailin is open about his past, though short on the details. He was left as an orphan near the Void and was later sold into slavery. But he fought his way out to be able to make it on his own. It wasn't easy, but his life is his own now. Coming from nothing to have all the world's possibilities open to him is an empowering force that continuously motivates him to reach for greater heights.

He has reconnected with his people, the giantborn tribes near Stormgarde and found a family in a clan revering silver dragons and a sense of belonging in the Storm Cloud Lodge. A frequent traveler, he has gone out into the world to collect stories to bring back to his people to enhance their knowledge and enrich their culture.

Kailin is truly a man full of possibilities. His focus is quickly drawn from one thing to the next and his young, eager ambitions cannot hold focus for long. Likely destined to be a jack of all trades and a master of none, he is perfectly suited to being in a secondary role and knowing that his small contributions can be helpful.


Kailin stands only seven feet tall, short by the standards of his kin, but is defined by a massive, chiseled form of muscle as thick and massive as a giantborn two feet taller. Brown skin stretches taut over his form in stark contrast to his other, lighter features. His hair is powder white and grouped in long locks that are tied back behind his head. His eyes are bright blue, but cloudy, similar to those of one who may be blind. His giantborn heritage is emphatic in his facial features with overly sharp cheek bones, a square jaw and a strong chin cutting harsh lines along his face.

Most of Kailin is covered by sparse and simple attire. A chainmail shirt that has seen better days protects his upper body and loose breeches cover his lower half, dangling with straps used to tie the cloth tightly against his legs. He wears generously used leather boots with fringe at the top to keep his feet comfortable. His only pieces of aesthetic value are a torc that he wears around his neck and a few carved bones in each ear for earrings.

History: Long ago, a young gold dragon was captured, imprisoned and tortured by a clutch of evil dragons led by an ancient red who then stole its soul and bonded it to a golem to serve it for all time. Many centuries later, the golem was stolen from the red in a raid by a tribe of frost giants, who later lost it to a powerful silver dragon after a failed raid.
