Ornrik Durthas

Very little is known about this quite, mysterious and odd old dwarf. Ornrik is a Dwarf of average stature; for a dwarf), with reddish-brown hair and green eyes; no longer young but well advanced in years. Ornrik has told little of history to anyone, other than the fact he hails from the famous Durthas Clan of Corwyn..

He has the look of a battle-hardened fighter, but the twinkle in his eyes reveals a keen intellect. His soft tones indicates much wisdom. Thus far, he has only worn an aged but carefully tended studded leather armor. The clothes he wears with or underneath are common - nothing fancy. He does have a large backpack that seems about half full. When initially asked about his skills by Viselys, he deflected the question by saying he was not interested in taking up the conversation at that time. Eventually, Ornrik finally revealed to his companions that he is somewhat unique among the dwarves of his clan in that he practices the arcane and spiritual arts. He told his companions this in confidence, as it is a socially difficult matter for him.

Ornrik is considered very odd by his companions and his complete disregard for others’ personal space and business has begun to wear very thin. He seems particularly interested in "outing" the alleged fraternal relationship between Viselys and Adameus. He has also assisted Diamondback in her attempts to attract Viselys' romantic attentions. Finally, he has informed Saris that Captain Amella is pregnant, presumably with Saris' child (a fact that Amella herself may not yet be aware).

During the battle of Farshore against the Crimson Fleet, Ornrik cast an ill aimed fire ball that killed Lavinia and very nearly Saris as well. This enraged the demonic Vanthus who commanded his demon minions to converge upon Ornrik, and thus Ornrik's death was horrific, being torn to bloody shreds. However, this has not marked his complete end.

In a strange twist of fate one of the newest party members, Ken-ji was able to preform a reincarnation spell that would allow his fallen spirit to return to this plane of existence housed within a new body. Ken-ji had explained that the new body was not within his ability to choose, however, if the spirit did not approve it would not be forced. When the human body manifested it was believed that the quirky dwarf's spirit would balk at the notion, but to everyone's surprise, Ornrik's spirit did accept the new body.

With his new body being completely alien and his vantage point for viewing the world being elevated, he has decided to stay with the other newly risen Jade Ravens.
