Additional Notes on This Character:
- His home is a combo of home and forge. The house is built almost on stilts, with stairs leading up into the full house. The house has a Kitchen, full bathroom with Shower and bathtub, Living room, small office/Library and a fairly large master bedroom. The forge is under the house, with large shutters that can form walls between the stilts of the home. These shutters can all open to the side or lift up to make the forge fully open on all sides. The forge has Four Kilns, six different work benches, various areas for storage of both wares and equipment. Behind the Forge, connected to the forge by a fence and gate, is a decent sized pasture where he keeps his two horses. The pasture has a small barn for the horses to get out of the elements, as well as a water trough that always has a small flow from the hose to keep the water fresh and flowing. Wild alfalfa grows in the back of the pasture.
Kivi was the first born to his King father and Queen mother. His beginning years were spent learning about how to be a good leader, playing, and taking care of his little brother, Pietari. When he turned 47 (about 16 in human years), he was chosen to go to the Great Gathering where the dwarven kingdoms united to let the next generation meet their dragon partners. Only the best of the best got a dragon, and they would grow up to be the peace-keepers of the country. Kivi was one of the lucky ones, and left with a Cavern Dragon named Oregin.
At the age of 55 (aprox 18 Human), Kivi and Oregin were investigating the rumors of a problem witch in the area of a small human village in their kingdom. The rumors appeared to be true, and the Dragon-Dwarf pair decided to take care of the problem. What they thought was a witch, though, turned out to be someone much stronger. Spell Binders, as his people called them. Masters of curses, plagues and ill-bringings. The two were soon victims of the Spell Binder.
Searing pain, and screams from Oregin. The world around him grew foggy and twisted. Darkness.
When he awoke, Oregin was no where to be found. He tried to search for him, but his back burned and crippled him. There was no echo of Oregin's voice in his mind, and he couldn't feel his warmth. Fear and panic engulfed him. Then the feeling of twisting in his own skin overwhelmed him. When he looked down again, he saw claws, not hands. Silvery hide instead of Skin. The spell binder had morphed Dragon and rider into one being.
When Kivi had regained himself, he returned home. He told everyone that Oregin had been killed. He was then banished for letting his dragon fall. Kivi's brother, Pietari, left their home with him.
Pietari was the only one to know the truth, and was determined to help Kivi break the curse.
Then, when Kivi was 65, him and his brother, as well as another companion, were ambushed by bounty hunters. They were wanted for the rumor that they were dragon slayers. Pietari didn't make it out alive.
Kivi soon met Siegfried, he recruited him to help make tack for horses. It was a simple job, that has expanded into his passion.
