Belegar IronhammerA burning desire for vengeance and justice drives Belegar Ironhammer - he will reclaim his throne, no matter the cost.
It is a bitter legacy of hatred and resentment that Belegar Ironhammer has inherited. For he is leader of the Angrund Clan and direct descendant of King Lunn, the last Dwarf to rule Karak Eight Peaks before its fall. While the grand mansion of their people - a Hold second only to Karaz-a-Karak in terms of wealth and prestige - was being despoiled, the scions of the former King laboured elsewhere, shorn of home and honour. Many of the ruling heirs of Angrund have attempted to reclaim their former glory, to avenge the grudges bequeathed to them. Despite the weight of years and the hopelessness of the cause, when Belegar came of age he made bold oaths and set out to recover his full inheritance. Belegar has since established himself as a master of subterranean warfare. On his orders enemy probes are smashed, ambushes overcome and infiltration paths blockaded. Yet Belegar is not content to sit behind his fortifications, and many times he has led assaults into the underhalls of his forefathers. There, from the shattered remains of his Ancestors' tombs, Belegar claimed the rune-struck chunk of rock that now serves as his Oath Stone. It is said amongst Dwarfs that his warrior skills are second only to those of the Slayer King, and that at will Belegar can summon the vengeful powers of his Ancestors. Yet for all his victories, he remains embittered, vowing to one day reclaim all of Karak Eight Peaks for his own.
