Equipment: Most of Firfin’s possessions are mundane and dull. His
short sword is white in honor of Stasis and is a minor Holy weapon. His
Plate Mail was a gift from traveling dwarves of the Sledgehammer clan
and is made of mithral. He also has a lawful spear named “Toovin-Sep”,
which translates in common as “Demon Spike”. Firfin usually wears a
golden circlet, a gift from a shrine of Celetal, which protects his
mind. He also carries several potions, and a magical ring or two at all
As Firfin tells the story, it was never his intention to travel the
world. The Great Halfling Forest was his home, one that he swore to
defend, and one that he served dutifully in the name of Stasis for a
decade. His life was drastically taken from that course one day forty
Before he began his
travels, Firfin was a leader of a Halfling brigade in the Great Forest.
For many years, he faithfully and dutifully served the Halfling
communities, defending them at the Boiling Line. Firfin was widely known
to be courageous and honorable. He had a popularity that would only be
matched by his later infamy.
During one particularly
brutal battle, the Wugs were beginning to overwhelm the position that
Firfin and his brigade were defending. Luckily, the forces of the
Wooduke arrived in time to prevent the position from being overrun.
After the battle, Firfin held several Wugs as prisoners. The Wooduke
ordered Firfin to execute them, a command he refused. Outraged, the
Wooduke ordered the prisoners to be handed over. Firfin, knowing what
would happen should he obey the order, released the Wugs.
The Wooduke’s outrage
grew into fury. He publicly denounced Firfin, stripped him of his rank,
and banished him for ten years from the Great Forest. Firfin accepted
his fate and left, with every intention of returning in ten years. The
Wooduke, however, has other plans. The story began to spread that Firfin
has betrayed the Halflings, and was the reason for the battle going
poorly until the arrival of the Wooduke. So widely and well did the
Wooduke spread the tale, that when Firfin tried to return to the forest,
the Halflings did not welcome him.
Disheartened, but not
broken, Firfin began to travel the continent, helping those that would
have him. He took on the mantel of the Order of the Banished Hero and
quickly became its most well known member. While Halflings don’t usually
ride, they aren’t usually forced to travel constantly around the world
either. Firfin rides a Blink Dog named Trex, who has been his companion
for over 25 years.
