Well, motated myself to change a few things. I seemed to remember specifing Hragnúr was male more often than i did... but i changed those times and put in red. Also made a few Spelling corrections as i saw them. Nothing major changed really.

Galein is still a male dwarf, and male dwarves do not occupy themselves with cooking, as they believe that preparing food is the job of the female dwarves. The rigid social structure of the Thergerim does not allow any exceptions. Also, the dwarves are said to be as stubborn as the element they came from, meaning centuries old tradition will not be broken that easily. Any deviation from the said tradition will not only be prevented by the elders, leaders and the Denirim of the community, it will also be viewed as a taboo by other dwarves.

Please read the dwarven employment as to how male cooks are impossible.

Oh, right new I was forgetting something. Seemed like I needed to make a big change when I brought it up and when i only changed Hragnur it seemed like I still needed to do something. Will be working on the gender change today.

Ew...kinda ruined my chance at gettig things done today...

My dog had ran away yesterday, and we didn't notice until today, since she sleeps under the deck. So we had to go out and look for her. And eventually get her from the Animal Rescue League. Which that took the majority of the day. Not much time left, so I will have to get to it first thing tommarrow.

Comments will be made fierce in fuchsia.
Corrections will be made ravishing in red.


Name: Galein UmwieWirrelinntheroon(last name usually shortened to UmwieWirrelinn)
Gender: Male
Age: 175
Race: Dwarf      
Tribe:(space)Mitharim
Title: Short-sized Cook
Occupation: Cook(space)/ Owner of the Kenn Kemruhnt(The Marble Warhammer)

Appearance
Height:(space)1 Ped, 1 Fores
Weight: 2 Pygge, 2 Hebs, 1 Hafeb
Hair Color: Deep Brown
Eye Color: Hazel

Physical Appearance: Galein has been interested in food all his life. His ancestors were cooks and this tradition has not failed through history. His great-great-great-great-great grandfather was a cook and his son became a cook and so on. This being true(comma) he has a bit more weight than the other naturally heavy dwarfs. He doesn't like to travel because it takes to much effort. Instead he stays in Tyr Donian working the tavern his grandfather started.

That being said(comma) he does appear to have some muscle on his arms. This is because he has to lift flour sacks and other heavy things. Stirring also helps add to his muscles. He can stir for several minutes and feel as though nothing had happened.

His facial hair is long and flowing. It comes down to his waist and is tucked under his belt when he is cooking. The hair on the top of his head seems to be receding though it is still as full as his beard, his forehead just seems a bit larger than other dwarfs. The hair falls down a few nailsbreadths below his shoulders. His hazel eyes dash about trying to take every detail in at once. When his smile extends wide, some crooked teeth are flashed.
;) Only one space is needed between each section.


Clothing: Galein doesn't need warm very warm clothing, due to the breath and natural heat from all the people in Tyr Donian combining and keeping the city warm. He has 2 sets of brown short sleeved shirts and 2 navy blue pants. He also has his apron on during most of the day to prevent his clothing from being splattered on.  

Personality: Galein has a personality that suits his job. When you work with people for your living you have to be kind and courteous. Though, if a customer were rude to him he might say something in ThergerimTaal to the other dwarfs. If the person would ask what he would say he would say<-remove he had said something about bringing another drink or salt or something. He wouldn't do anything to discourage the customer from buying something.

He tolerates the other races well and especially likes Brownies. They too, have to deal with their size, more so even than a dwarf. Galein thus respects Brownies highly. He doesn't like the other races as much because he has to look up to see their faces. Galein doesn't like heights and looking up sometimes makes him dizzy.

If a fight breaks out he has to send for some security from Tyr Donian. No one that works in the tavern has any training in weapons(comma) so he has to rely on the security and what good-hearted people there happens to be in the tavern. Most of the time fights are just verbal ones but if it turns into a real fight he hopes that some of the patrons will step in and split them up. He will try to stop verbal fights quickly, just so he doesn't have to go and get the dwarven forces to split the fight.

He has a good sense of humor and often makes jokes with the patrons and his family and friends. He often gets people laughing at the tavern and gets people in a good mood. Good moods means more drinks, more drinks mean more money! The jokes are sometimes directed towards the patrons but are said jokingly(comma) and if Galein thinks he has hurt the patrons feelings he will explain that it was a joke and apologize. Maybe even give them a free drink if they seem really hurt by the joke.

Galein enjoys animals, as long as they don't cause trouble. Every animal that would normally be able to go inside is welcomed in the tavern, as long as they are well behaved. All the other animals that don't fit, stay out in the stable. Food scraps are always available if the patron wishes the pet to eat the scraps.

Along with animals, Galein likes children. The way they act makes him feel young or makes him remember how he acted. Children also bring their need for sweets(comma) which means desserts are bought. Desserts mean more money for the workers to split.

Galein seems easy going and will go along with anything. He does, however, have to keep the tavern in order, however much he would like to just go along with anything. He will try to keep fun coming rolling with them but will keep the tavern in order as well.

Strengths and Weaknesses

Strengths
-Cooks well: Galein receives compliments and sometimes a rather large tip for his cooking. Most of the recipes he knows, he has either made himself or learned from his father.
-Tolerance: Galein can tolerate other races enough that the person would seem more welcome at his tavern, rather than the other taverns. He is friendly to all the races, unless that particular elf is causing trouble or other such things.
-ThergerimTaal: Galein is able to speak ThergerimTaal which can help him hide important information or rude comments from a customer. It also sometimes seems easier to say things in ThergerimTaal than Tharian.

Weaknesses
-Size: Galein is average height for a dwarf, but for any other races(except brownies, hobbits, and gnomes) this is short. He doesn't enjoy looking up at the taller races, it makes him dizzy and reminds him how small he is compared to them. 
-Weight: Galein is out of shape so he can't travel distances or do a lot of work. [color=]It doesn't really matter much except when he has to go into town to get supplies or security.
-Doesn't like heights: When looking upward he sometimes finds himself dizzy or lightheaded. He has never been fond of heights, but it has seems to get worse the older he gets.

History: As said above Galein's entire family for generations has been cooks. Recipes have been created and passed down from father to all children they have. His Grandfather had started a tavern just outside Tyr Donian and Galein's father, Laghrin, worked under him and then eventually took over. This is the same thing Galein has done with his father. First he helped his father prepare things and then took over the tavern. Galein took over the tavern when his father decided he was going to travel around Sarnovia to find new recipes and foods. His father now visits the tavern occasionally in between his travels.

Galein was born with 2 brothers, each a few minutes younger than him. The middle child was named Gadaser, and the youngest was named Gapad. Gapad took an interest in pastry and sweets, while Gadaser found interest in main courses. Galein enjoyed both of these things, and more. His favorite is form of cooking is baking, but he does this as much as he does all the other parts.

At an early age, around 15, the three 'Ga's' (as they called themselves) were introduced to cooking. They were shown various foods, and were asked to help with simple things. As they got older they were asked to do more important things, like put stuff in the oven and add ingredients to the harder dishes. When they were old enough to know how to read instructions and follow them, they were given recipes for foods that they thought would be fun to make. All the cooking was done in The Kenn Kumruhnt.

At the age of 30, the 'Ga's' started to specialize into their different favorite cooking groups.  Gapad, went into more difficult pastries and desserts, while Gadaser went into learning difficult main meals. Galein went into baking and mastered it quickly. He then went into desserts and finished that. Then he went into main meals, after he finished that he went into other cooking methods. Now he can cook well at any type of food. By the time he was done learning all of this he was 60.

For ten years Galein worked with his father and brothers at The Kenn Kumruhnt. Learning family recipes and creating his own all along the way. Some of these recipes that he made can be bought at the tavern. One such is the Goldsponge Cabbages. Cabbage sprinkled with Goldsponge pulps and Sulcho Mushrooms.

At age 73 Galein met a dwarf just a year or two older then him. She walked in right after he showed his father a recipe that he had made. His father didn't think it looked appetizing nor did it follow common cooking rules. The dwarf walked up to the counter and his father stopped and turned to the dwarf saying, "Yes, sorry about that, my son is a bit of an upstart, may I help you young master? My name is Laghrin, by the way, Laghrin UmwieWirrelinn."

The dwarf replied, "Actually, you can. My name is Hragnúr, and I have been looking somewhere to train as a Brewsmaster. When I saw that your tavern had no home brew I thought I could help you if you can help me."

Galein knew that his father was looking for a Brewmaster. His father had been doing all the brewing at the tavern and was always busy taking care of that and helping cook. This would allow his father to help Galein and his brothers with cooking and still have time to do other duties.

His father answered like Galein knew he would, "I have been looking for a Brewmaster for some time now. I expect you to be diligent in your studies if I do take you on.” Laghrin glanced at Galein and then said smiling, “I have no time for a layabout apprentice. Galein is one too many layabouts for my likings.” He indicted to Galein and Hragnúr glanced at him for a second before dashing out the door. Galein could sense a great happiness coming from Hragnúr.

His father turned to him and said, “Go tell her to be here at dawn, before she gets to far away.”

Galein walked quickly out the door and told Hragnúr, “My father says to be here at the crack of dawn.”  and then continued, “I look forward to seeing you around, tis' been a long time since I have company of my own age that isn't my brothers.”

Hragnúr worked hard at learning and soon could brew dwarven ale. Galein's father left her to experiment, and try to find a home brew ale for The Kenn Kumruhnt. Galein and Hragnúr became great friends and are still great friends today. Galein kept in touch with Hragnúr throughout his life and today are almost like brothers.Almost like brothers? But isn't Hragnur a female? So, don't you mean "almost like siblings."?  Huh?

At age 89, Galein prepared for his Baregozar. He worked on a cavern, but seeing as he was a cook he didn't have much skill at making this cavern look nice. When the dwarfmaids came and looked around a few smiled sweetly and others just looked around. When the dwarfmaids made their choices Galein was left without a dwarfmaid. Today he claims this is a good thing, though in his heart he has some hurt feelings. He says that it was for the better, because food is his one true love. 

At age 110 for Galein, Hragnúr finally came up with a home brew for the tavern. The home brew was added to the menu and became a big hit with the dwarfs and other races alike.

When Galein was 120, his father decided to leave the tavern in Galein's hands and went to travel around and find new methods of cooking and new recipes. Galein took the tavern gladly and ran it like his father did with only a few differences.

For 20 years Galein ran the tavern pulling enough profit for everyone that worked there to get a bit of extra money. When Galein was 140, he and Hragnúr start to fix up the tavern. Putting new boards in the front so the tavern didn't look dilapidated, buying new furniture, and buying new tools. It took them a year but the 2 of them made it look nicer, though it didn't look like a carpenter had done it.

Another 20 years pasted without much interesting things occurring. But when Galein was 170 a dwarven mage came to to The Kenn Kumruhnt. This dwarf was named Thorgas Ironforge. At first Galein was a bit apprehensive toward Thorgas, he had never had a dwaren magic user in his tavern before. Eventually, though, he started to like this dwarf and the dwarf needed a job. Thorgas was a portly dwarf and enjoy food. He became a cook, and came up with many new recipes that can be found at the tavern. It is just an added plus that the dwarf(?) is a fire mage, so his abilities are put to good use.

The 3 of them have been working in the tavern ever since. Galein would like to travel as his father does, but he has no son to pass it on to. He could eventually pass it to one of his nephews, but they will need to grow up first.

Weapons: NoneIf your character isn't carrying a weapon, then this section can be removed completely. :)
