Riches from Rags
King Marcus - Ghost
Ghost - Former Deep Lord
Male Dwarf, Ghost
King Marcus was a blacksmith-turned-king, and odd example of upward mobility in Dwarven society. Even as king, he was happiest when molding metal over a fire. He worked so frequently and diligently, in fact, that he was often cold when not near his kiln. His path to greatness began as the King’s personal smithy. When the King’s wife proved barren, he named Marcus as his heir.
Marcus has black hair, and his skin has acquired a permanent red hue due to his near-constant presence to sources of extreme heat. Somehow, he floats with a limp, and he still uses a cane when he moves around.
