Bogrin Forkbeard

Leader of the wealthy Forkbeard Trading Company, this Dwarf is descended from a clan that long ago adapted to a life of farming and trading above-ground and adopted their own distinct ways and customs, unique among their race. Bogrin hired the adventurers (beginning the Prologue), having had his assistant assess that they had the specific mixture of skills he required, for a special task: to transport the ashes of his father, Gurin son of Hugen (which had been mixed into a barrel of butter in accordance with the traditions of his clan), to a shrine to Gazul in the mountains at the Southern end of Winter’s Teeth Pass.

He financed their initial expedition and retains a sum of money to pay them upon their successful return.
