Bio:

Bayleaf was born into a small dwarven family of 14 brothers and sister to his parents Igra and Malak. Although not the youngest child, Bayleaf was the runt of the family, making him the subject of torment by his siblings. This constant teasing, however, proved to be a source of inspiration to Bayleaf, as he used the taunts to push himself in the hopes of being known throughout the land as the greatest Frost Dwarf ever to live. One day, while in the woods training, Bayleaf stumbled upon a sight he had not seen before: a creature which had the vague appearance of a dwarf, only larger. Having only lived among his brethren, Bayleaf did not recognize that it was a man who stood before him. The man stood over strange symbols chanting in a language foreign to Bayleaf. Suddenly, a burst of energy exploded from the circle, knocking Bayleaf unconscious. He awoke later to the screams from his home and strange chattering noises. When he rushed to his home, he found it in ruins and strange skeletal creatures destroying all he held dear. Worst of all: the chattering was the laughter from the skeletons at the mayhem they were causing. Bayleaf fought bravely, but his proximity to the spell’s release gave Bayleaf a weakness to the creatures which he could not fully overcome. After hours of combat, most of his home was gone, along with much of his family and friends. Bayleaf vowed on that day to train even harder and to learn the art of rune carving so that he might one day find this sorcerer and exact his revenge. Bayleaf holds all those who are not Frost Dwarf partially responsible for the destruction of his way of life. However, Bayleaf recognized that he could not exact revenge alone. Bayleaf has put aside some of his mistrust in order to track down his foe and avenge his fallen kin.
