Qualm: Honorable Challenge
Roryn Rockbottom hails from the mightiest of all dwarf realms, the Great Rift, which is the ancestral homeland of the Gold Dwarves.
Roryn will offer his prayers to Moradin each morning. Like his patron diety, Roryn is gruff and uncompromising and hard as stone when it comes to protecting his fellow dwarves. He is proud and independent, and as a result will rebuff any overtures of aid if it smacks of charity or pity.
He is realistic enough to know that not all threats come from outside, and that sometimes you have to be wary of threats from within. He has sometimes become jaded and naturally suspicious of other's motives, since as a Paladin in the order of the Hammer of Moradin, he can see into other's hearts and souls and finds that not everyone meets his standards of justice and honour.
("Evil is Everywhere!")
Honour demands that he face and defeat his foes in a fair fight, so he will not automatically lash out at a typical dwarven enemy (drow, orc, etc…), but will instead allow them the opportunity to prove and, possibly redeem themselves to be something better then most would give them credit for. Most fail, and suffer the consequences.
