Personality: As like any dwarf Gimain loves his alcohol, the more the merrier. Doesn't anger quickly but when he does he has a sharp tongue and tells everything as it is. Gimain is very suspicious of any race outside the iron forge dwarfs so earning his trust his hard, and especially hard if said person was elves and draenei. But once you befriend Gimain he is kind and generous to those that hold true to him. He is a protector of the weak, innocent or even if his friends are in danger. He can be very stubborn when he wants to be, if he sets his mind to something there is no changing it until he has fulfilled it.
Likes: Gimain loves his alcohol as mentioned before, he does like to gamble a bit, and he is very fond of the shorter race or also known as gnomes. He loves spending time in the forge creating weapons and if not that then its training with his trusty axe and shield.
Dislikes: Gimain dislikes people who use magic he considers it a trick more than anything else.
Appearance: : Gimain is a little bit taller than most dwarfs coming in at 4'14 and weighting at 100kg’s. He has long black hair just to his shoulders while he has a full beard like any other respected dwarf does, he is muscular due to been a dwarf and smithing and training. He was dark eyes and a scar just above his left eye from practicing with friends. You will usually find him wearing full plate mail that is shining silver, but no helmet or head piece, on his waist u will see his axe and on his back you will find his shield which is engraved with a StoneFist on it, the family crest.
Strengths: Gimain’s strength lies in his ability to use a shield and axe with ease. He is a master at forging weapons, there is nothing he can’t craft for you.
Weaknesses: Because Gimain is a dwarf and wears full plate he is rather slow on the battlefield. Sometimes because he is so stubborn it can get the best of him at times as he doesn't see to clearly. Because he lashes out when he’s angry people do tend to stay away from him and because he is so suspicious it’s hard for him to trust anyone or befriend them.
History: Gimain lived in Iron forge all his life, he has no siblings a father Dwalin and his mother Thon. Dwalin is a weapon smith at Iron Forge and has his own forge to do all his smithing. Gimain would spend his days training with an axe and a shield with his friends or on training dummies. He has got a few scares from training with his friends but it’s all part of the experience, his most noticeable scare is on his face, just above his eye is a long cut which he got because he wasn't concentrating during training and his friend hit him with a solid blow above his eye, but he took it lightly as it was his own fault, he could have avoided it.
Gimain also likes a good drink and even drinking contests with friends or even strangers, all in the name of fun and friendship.
When Gimain got to the age of 35 Dwalin took him in as his apprentice weapon smith which is the family tradition. Gimain remained under Dwalin’s apprenticeship for 20 years, which he had mastered the craft of weapon smithing and it was Dwalin’s idea to send Gimain to Gold Shire to open up his own forge and work his way into opening a forge in the Dwarven district in storm wind.
Gimain enjoyed the challenge of starting his own forge in Gold Shire as to the residence he was a nobody so he had to make a name and reputation for himself, 3 years later he made his forge a bit bigger as people saw how good his craft was and his weapons were getting more in demand. Gimain’s main goal was to get into the Dwarven district open a forge for himself and then start teaching his craft to those that were willing to learn it and work hard.
