ravine argal brennand by nebezial ravine argal brennand by nebezial
one of the only three smiths who can handle seventh rank tellas and a very powerful fighter, argal is among the dwindling numbers of half blooded, of the sinners of form . among the half blooded races sardaheim, shivas, and mesadee are considered dragon blessed, but there are the others... those whose forefathers have cursed them by merging their blood with the fell beast.

they gained vast power but paid a terrible price. their children were born severely misshapen and rare lived beyond the age of three

further along many suffered the horrible death, for at their teen age, the unstable dragon blood in their veins would awaken , and they woud forge.

forging is a natural process of maturation for dragons, their first forge dives them their fire breath, and also forms their scales into tellas, and strenghtens their bodies.
to do this they are set ablaze, they burn with immense heat, and this is exactly what happens to the children of the fell clans

their dragon parts remain undamaged but their human part cannot stand it.

only one man was ever known to survive the forge. argal, the only fire breathing halfblood on ravine

tragedy had followed him through his life. his son died by forging at the age of fourteen. now he lives alone. he drinks without ever getting drunk, eats the foulest and spicyest food for only that can provide him with some taste, as everything else tastes like ash

and in issue five this bundle of cheerfulness is joining steins party

Now that's a cool character (did we meet him in book 1?  I don't recall him!!)!  You know, in many ways, this completely satisfies my Sandor Clegane fetish. :)  Yes, I am one of those girls haha.  He's awesome!
