"The frost will bite at your skin, and so will the wolf. Do not expect mercy when they come at you howling in the night, do not expect warmth to be had in these trenches. For now on there is only the front, and we shall keep it!"

Character name: Kilgan Stonehearth
Alias: Thane
Gender: Male
Age: 212
Race: Dwarf, Bronzebeard
Class: Warrior, Magna, Thane; Mountain King

Birth region: Dun Morogh
Specific area/town: Kharanos
Family: Aram Stonehearth(Deceased, Father), Marja Stormpike(Deceased, Mother), Loran Stonehearth(Deceased, Brother), Trunni Stonehearth(Firstborn, Daugther), Borming Stonehearth(Son), Silva Stonehearth(Niece), Lofur Stonehearth(Nephew)
Friends: Janela Thunderwing, Lo Stormpike
Enemies: Frostwolf Clan

Description: Age and war has left their mark on Kilgan, leaving his features taut and worn. His beard is well-made and well-combed, whitish gray and thin of hair, at times adorned with rings and pins of gold. His posture often shows of great bearing, toughened and hardened by years of war and duty. His dwarven speech is accurate and well-spoken, and could noticeably indicate the he has had some sort of higher education. His common speech is however thick of accent, which to some may prove the opposite.

Kilgan is often seen in his red plate, common to the Magna's of the Stonehearth clan and kin. Many of these plate pieces are wrapped in sweeping lines of red and white cloth, and bits of gold engravinings can be found on his belt, and shoulder ends. These engravings resemble signs and images of the six Titans, and known Mountain Kings. Similar signs and images can also be found embroidered on much of the cloth, or even carved into the visable leather.

Personality: Kilgan is both stern and placid of temperament which makes him a dwarf rare to lash out, he is however impatient and quick to judge. To kin and family he is known to be hard, and his children have it far from easy. Many however find him to be just and fair in his manner and reasoning, despite the harshness of his ways. Conversely, pride and joy is not unfamiliar to Kilgan, and he does occasionally broaden a tight and strained smile. Ale, and intoxication does often lighten his mood, if not little then greatly. To humour him might prove a gamble, but a good laugh will surely add to one's favour in whatever one might ask of a Thane.

History: Kilgan was brought up in Kharanos in the early years of his life, and at the age of twenty he had been trained to be a proper Magna. His father, however, had greater ambitions for his son and had him sent off to Ironforge to be taught in the writings of dwarvish, the study of dwarven lore, and the known and discovered history of the dwarven race. Additionally, he was also at the time mentored, and schooled in the strategy of war and dwarven warfare. For nearly thirty years Kilgan spent his days doing his military and scholarly duties, and should be familiar with older dwarves having done the same. At the age of fifty, after examination, he was called back to serve at his father’s side. Although Kilgan was but minutes older than his brother Loran, his father had clear intentions to make him Thane on the day of his own passing.

Kilgan later came to serve in the first, second and third war, and might be familiar with others having done the same. More recently, for the past thirty years, he has been fighting the Frostwolf clan in the Alterac Valley. His place in this ongoing conflict has been at the front, mainly defending from bunkers and trenches. There he has placed kin and clan to watch over the open fields, gazing over to the Frostwolf defences on the opposite side. Kilgan is thus known to be one of the acting officers at the front, alongside already known and familiar Stormpike commanders.

The events that transpired during the cataclysm and the uncertainty before and after the unification of the three clans troubled Kilgan greatly, and in the midst of all the turmoil he felt powerless and unable to intervene, as duty would not have him abandon his post to ensure the seat for his Bronzebeard kin. The imperial initiative that the valley be taken for the dwarven nation had been issued under the rule of Magni himself, and Kilgan had no intention of abandoning the order despite the High Thane's untimely demise. Kilgan's admiration and dedication to the most likely deceased High Thane of the Bronzebeard's is still as great as it was at the time of his rule, but despite his devotion he still claims to serve in the interest of the dwarven nation now governed by the three clans.

*edited the part on Kilgan being taught of the Titan religion, as the discovery of the Titan's happened some thirty years ago according to the timeline. I will at some point cover Kilgan's fascination to these discoveries.
