Bio:

Born to a large family living in a small mining community, Tayvok was different from his siblings in that he showed no inherent love for the manual arts of mining or crafting. His mother is a skilled mining foreman, with the savy and skills to direct any sized mining team, while his father’s dexterous hands produces the most beautiful jewelry. So his apparent lack of interest in either occupational paradigm came as a disappointment to them both.

However, he did show an aptitude for the arcane that was unusual for one of his race. His village, Groundswell, had only a rudimentary hedge mage as the resident magic, and as a result imported any significant magic they needed. This hedge mage, Salphon, believed she was more capable than she actually was. She continually tried to prove her mastery over the arcane arts, failing repeatedly, often disastrously. Salphon became very offended when Tayvok’s parents announced a search for a teacher for their pre-teen son, other than her. As a result, to prove her worth as a teacher, she embarked on an extremely ambitious project, to provide a source of power so great that the whole village need not use oils or wood for heating or lighting, in their homes or in the gold mine that was the sole reason for the village’s very existence. The resulting catastrophic explosion supplied both a new problem and a solution to an existing problem. The crater that Salphon created DID remove the need for oil and wood lights in the mine, as it now became a strip mine, several leagues across, and the very ground glowed with sufficient light to work by at night. However, the same blast ended up killing sixty percent of the village populous (including Salphon herself luckily) and irradiated the land to toxic levels, even for Dwarves.

Tayvok’s family relocated to a large human community where he was enrolled in a local mage academy as the only dwarf student. Training in the school was not exactly easy, as each older student made it a point to ridicule, harrass, and prank the dwarf, at least until he proved himself a more than adept student and magic user. After reaching the end of the training that the school could give him, Tayvok set off to find his own way in the world, while searching out greater libraries and greater mastery over his arcane power.
