Character's Name:

Dagna Sunhair

Nicknames:

Queen of Lions, The Lioness of the Sun, Lady of the Mountain Hold

Age:

300

Gender:

Female

Species:

Dwarf

Abilities:

Enhanced Strength and Endurance - Dagna, like all dwarves, is physically powerful. Though being of royal blood she's even stronger than your average dwarf. Capable of lifting things far heavier than herself, it's said she can easily fend off a swipe of a dragon's claw or tail, or so the stories go. While not very fast she has great endurance, and can keep up a steady pace for leagues. Some may find her brutish for her strength, but Dagna has great control over it, and isn't above showing off to make a point. She's buff, she's tough, but most importantly she's not rough.

Metallurgy - Dagna has some degree of control over metal. This is particularly useful when she's at the forge, using her magic to get the metal to bend to her will in just the right way. While primarily used for smithing Dagna has been known to fling knives at her enemies, or stop an incoming blade. Controlling larger objects can prove difficult, as magic doesn't always come naturally to her.

Stone Sense - Born of the mountains Dagna can sense vibrations through rock and earth as if it were another sense of hers; and in a way it is. She can gather how large something is, how close it is, and which way it's traveling all based upon the feedback she gets from the earth beneath her feet. While she can sense groups of people it's difficult to tell how many there are. Being so attuned to the earth, Dagna is difficult to take by surprise, and can even sense tremors before they happen.

Smithing and Enchantment Crafting - Like all dwarves Dagna is exceptionally good at smithing, though what takes her above and beyond is her ability to weave enchantments into the very metal she's working with. Flaming swords, ice arrows, staves of luck--you name it, she can enchant it, though the effectiveness of the enchantment comes from the materials used while crafting. Better materials yield better results, and Dagna is known for hoarding whatever she can get her hands on.

Weapon Finesse - Dagna is an expert in all manner of weapons. She prefers her war hammer, Solrender, but can easily take to all manner of other weapons, with the exception of bows and arrows. She much prefers crossbows, and tinkering with them, but her aim isn't always the best. Her favorite weapons are those wielded with two hands, and while she can easily wield them with one, the second adds extra kick.

Armor of Fire Resistance - Dagna forged her own armor, and enchanted it to resist fire. Even the fabric can withstand the heat, and so she can boldly walk through flames and strike fear into the hearts of her enemies.

Solrender - The family heirloom, passed down from generation to generation, is an enchanted weapon that shatter diamonds and other tough materials. In addition to its toughness, Solrender can become a flaming weapon when the appropriate incantation is spoken: Sotu'ren. Only the one in possession of Solrender knows the incantation, as the spirit within the weapon tells it to the wielder.

Personality:

Steadfast -

Cunning -

Thoughtful -

Serious -

Benevolent -

Passionate -

History:

Dagna was born the youngest of four siblings. With three older brothers she was never seen as a contender for the throne, given the right of succession, but Dagna thought otherwise. As soon as she was old enough to entertain court she began plotting. She knew her brothers were warmongers, and while that alone wasn't a bad thing, their foolishness was. She feared their follies would drive their people into a corner against the dragon threat, and so Dagna began to study. Weapons, smithing, politics; whatever she could learn she did. And then she began to sow seeds of dissent against her brothers. She made herself invaluable to other court nobles, earning their good graces.

The advisors were particularly fond of her wit and attentiveness, and one by one she began to win them over. By the time her father died, a well aged and well liked king, Dagna had the majority of court in her pocket. Even her subjects loved her, for while her brothers were out strutting about like stuffed peacocks, Dagna spoke to the people and listened to their problems. She was truly the heart of the dwarven people.

On the day of her eldest brother's coronation, he entered the throne room to find Dagna sitting there, the family's ancestral weapon at her side.

"What is the meaning of this, Dagna?" he cried in an outrage, joined by his two brothers.

"You are unfit to rule, dear brother, so I'm taking the throne."

Her brother's outcries fell on deaf ears; Dagna's allies scoffed at him, and those she had not yet swayed waited to see who the victor would be before pledging their support. And so a battle for the throne began...

Or so it would have, if Dagna had not foreseen her brother's actions. With a snap of her fingers she had the guards subdue all three of her brothers, and publicly executed the eldest before the court, the blade falling by her own hands.

While his body was carted away, Dagna turned to her remaining brothers and said, "If you ever attempt to betray me again, you shall be next."

And with that Dagna took the throne, her brothers and remaining court pledging fealty to her.
