Gerrim is a dwarf blacksmith, owner of Gerrim’s Anvil. He is quiet and intense, very focused on his work; and quite well known for his delicate craftsmanship. He is in competition with Miller, a human blacksmith across the street.
Gerrim struggles with an undeserved reputation for poor quality weapons: clients request fancy, ornate weapons, and Gerrim obliges. The fault is in the design, not the craftsmanship. Gerrim is looking for either a new metal, or a better way of working steel, so that his fine work will be stronger.
