|Character Name||Fenodyree Ironbeard|
Fenodyree is a middle-aged dwarf whose hair and beard are snow white in colour. His body remains strong from hours spent at the forge and from drilling with his trusty hammer. He has a penchant for white clothes and is often seen wearing a smart white robe, even when at the forge. The combination of his white robes and snow-white hair has resulted in him being referred to as the 'White Dwarf' in some places.
Fenodyree has lost what small dwarven-brogue he had in his childhood from the many years he has spent in the human lands around Stormwind. He is (reasonably) honest, hard working and fair-minded. He is extremely open-minded and has discovered a love of Kaldorei culture and the sea on his travels. He hates injustice and will work hard to put it right when he finds it. He is loyal to his friends, though he finds making friends hard. Fenodyree has a habit of stroking his beard when thinking deeply.
Born in the small town of Kharanos, at the foot of Ironforge Mountain, Fenodyree was introduced to the forge almost before he could walk. Given over to the care of Tognus Flintfire, Fenodyree worked tirelessly through his Apprenticeship, showing great aptitude and skills. Once he was ready to become a Journeyman, Togus gave him a final test to complete. He was put onto a ship and sent off to far-off Darkshore with a mission to investigate rumours that the Cataclysm had opened up great rents of copper in that area. Fen set off to find out the truth.
In Darkshore Fenodyree discovered that the lands were indeed rife with exposed copper seams. He also found a land ripped apart by strife and he endeavoured to help the local Kaldorei with their struggles. In doing so he discovered a surprising love for Eversong Wine and many other things Kaldorei. Returning to Kharanos he was proud to be told of his promotion to the rank of Journeyman Smith.
Setting out into the world to make his living Fenodyree began looking for employment. Whilst scratching a living doing work here and there, he tried contacting a few of the Mercenary groups based out of Ironforge and Stormwind. He didn't get very far in that endeavour, but was put in touch with the leaders of the group calling itself the Wardens of Azeroth. After long discussions with them he signed up to their company for a short period of time. Though he liked what they were doing for the oppressed of the realm, Fen felt that his destiny was elsewhere so reluctantly he said his goodbyes and left the Wardens.
In order to progress his skills further, Fenodyree took himself off to Bengus Deepforge at the Great Forge in Ironforge and asked for his help. He sent Fenodyree through the Deep Tram to his cousin, Therum Deepforge of Stormwind. Fenodyree asked for the smith to teach him all he could and, sensing great potential in Fenodyree, Therum agreed.
Fenodyree built up a strong friendship with the Stormwind Smith and the two grew close. During this time Fenodyree worked tirelessly on his smithing and his skill grew day by day. Fenodyree learnt many things from Master Therum, from a simple cantrip which would keep his white robe (and beard) clean and soot free when working the forge, through to how to temper and forge the most complex of ores.
During this time Fenodyree was given a project by Therum. Therum was one a of few smiths in the city tasked with being responsible for the armour of the city watch. Fenodyree was given responsibility for the repairs to the armour. Rapidly proving himself skilled at this Therum passed on complete responsibility for all the Stormwind Guard armour that was sent his way by the city, including the creation of new suits. As part of this task, Fenodyree made himself a (dwarven sized) set of Stormwind Armour, to more fully understand how the uniform went together.
Finally Therum Deepforge declared Fenodyree a Mastersmith. He was now ready to head out into the world and make a name for himself. During his time in Stormwind he had grown to love the city-port, surprised to find that he loved to sit out and watch the sea over the harbour. He wanted to stay, so he contacted the city watch and petitioned them to allow him to join. Though dwarves were few inside the city watch, it was agreed and Fenodyree was proud to wear the suit of armour he had crafted himself in his daily patrols around the city.
At that time Fenodyree had two jobs. One was that of city watchman. He enjoyed this as it let him wander the city, keeping its people safe from danger and helping people out - and he occasionally got to patrol the harbour and look out over the sea. But his main job was that of the Blacksmith.
Eventually he decided it was time to focus purely on his main role, so he resigned his position in the city guard to focus fully on the position as a blacksmith. Those passing the forges in the Dwarven District of Stormwind will often see a white-robed dwarf with snow-white hair working a bellows and hammer: the 'White Dwarf' at work.
