Ghosts of Fallen Stars (Iron Gods)
Technology Enthusiast and Councilor of Torch
Konir Blaine settled in Torch a few years ago, with his adopted daughter Valaris ‘Val’ Blaine. He claims to have come originally from the River Kingdoms, then he settled for a while in Starfall, where he rescued the young kellid orphan Valaris. Not wanting to expose the girl Val to the violence in Starfall, he moved to Torch.
Apart from this, Konir does not share much about his past. But whatever his past is, Konir’s skill and knowledge with technology, combined with his charitable personality, swiftly made friends of nearly everyone in town. He built a successful business (the Foundry Tavern), shared new techniques for smelting and recasting skymetal, and even improved the town’s water supply. Despite repeatedly downplaying his contributions, Konir eventually found himself unanimously voted to the town council, an outcome which he feels gives him and Val the greatest opportunity for sustained success.
