Gotrek is a large dwarf (4’ 5") weighing 210 lbs. He has tanned skin, tattooed with the symbols of his lost clan and a large red Mohawk. He has an eye-patch and does not wear armour (dwarves were known to sink in armour).
Gotrek is a hero of the Yerasol War. He was involved in the battle on Axis Island nine years ago during the War. He was part of military expedition tasked with taking control of the island from the Danorian forces. He was under the command of Takin Dowerhammer. The island was a pretty place, with steep jungle and beautiful beaches at the edge of the wild magic zone that surrounds Danor’s dead magic zone. Gotrek still has dreams about weird stuff happened there though – terrain seeming to shift, spells backfiring, rockslides and tree falls happening too often to be coincidence – almost like the island was fighting both sides who were trying to claim it.
During the fighting he was seriously hurt from a Fire Bolt, knocking him out and over a cliff face into the ocean. We woke lying on small beach with a burning pain in his head. The foul magic had taken his eye without even giving him a glorious death. Only his natural toughness and resilience had kept him alive. He eventually made it back to the expedition but had developed a healthy disdain for magic (and water).
The war dragged on with neither side gaining much advantage, and the island fighting both. At the close of the war both the Danorian forces and Risur force withdrew relatively peacefully. During the dark days following the Yerasol War he started drinking, and fighting. Gotrek could be found in the seder side of Flint, in Bosum Strand, frequenting rough taverns and dives. Here he found an old acquaintance Hassan the Smith who forged his cold iron Greataxe that Gotrek used during the war. One day staggering out of pub, mildly intoxicated, he found himself in riot. Nothing like a good fight. But seeing a small Gnome being set upon by the mob, enraged Gotrek and he interceded. Intimidating the crowd with his Drunken rage (carrying his Great Axe may have helped).
The Gnome turned out to be Felix Von Ravig, a bard. They became fast friends. Gotreks adventures (ignoring his drinking and a little poetic license) have been documented by Felix ever since. Convinced by Felix (who still thinks Gotrek a hero) Gotrek joined the Royal Homeland Constabulary (RHC) to somehow integrate back into society whether society is ready for him or not. Gotrek seeks to solve the worlds problems with Intimidation and if that fails his Great Axe.
Everything changed with the death of Felix in the line of duty. Gotrek blames himself for his death. This caused a massive change, Gotrek swore off drinking. Now without his close friend Gotrek must face the cold hard world sober. On the 12th of 500 A.O.V. Gotrek and the RHC team were Knighted by King Aodhan for their services in bringing down the notorious crime-lord Lorcan Kell and stopping the Witch-Oil Colossus which was poised to destroy Flint.
With the death of King Aodhan, and no other “good” choices Risur voted to make Gotrek the Monarch of Risur. It is lucky that there are lots of support staff that can make valued and useful suggestions.
