“She were even wee’r an she es now, iff’n ye can pi’ture et. Her pa figured e’d parcel her off an’ secure a wee bit o’ prestige with tha Brotherhood.” He shakes his head. “Tha lad wha her pa chose were driven, an li’ most minin’ folk, ore’ were worth more n’ tha’ livin. Et were clear tha Loir needed tae be gotten out o’ tha mine: witherin away she were. Her ma go’ her fostered wit us after a… well… she jes did.” His tone becomes a bit clipped and the conversation shifts as dwarves are want to do when they don’t quite know you.

Keep her in th’air an all.” He nods and glances at the sky again and frowns. “Blast et! Better get in tae tha keep er mount up.. th’infernals er back!” He quickly dons a helmet, grabs a gun and hops to the back of his battle-gryphon to defend Wildhammer Hold.
