Johan Blackgrove[edit]

Male Human Miner, Explorer lvl 1
Medium Humanoid

Physical Description[edit]

An athletic, dark haired man with a stubble of beard, in his mid twenties.

Backstory and personality[edit]

Johan is the youngest in a line of famous explorers. It started with his great grandmother Cordelia, who discovered the fate of the long since vanished Goldscale Tribe of finfolk. The reclusive tribe had been wiped out by an epidemic, leaving only ruins behind. His grandfather, Captain Maximilian Blackgrove, was a famous seafarer who discovered the sea route to the distant Eastern Continent. Johan’s parents continued the discoveries, with his father Conrad finding the famed lost Valley of the Blue Crystals, and his mother Hanna discovering the site and unearthing the ruins of the ancient Castle Darkwall.

And then there is Johan, who – discovered the copper vein and directed the construction of the roadway that led to the opening of the new Daggerpeak Mine. While an accomplishment, it does not seem like much when compared to the ones of his older family members. And it is not one that would be sufficient for Johan, who grew up with the tales of his family history into an ambitious young man determined to add his own name into that history. But after starting his own career as an explorer, he came to realize that most of the great finds had already been made. After a foray into the hard to reach mountainous regions of his homeland, his greatest find was just a rich vein of ore. While the land still held secrets, none seemed to promise finds even nearly as prestigious as those of his parents. Sailing to the distant lands was an option, but a discovery equal to those of his grandfather was unlikely.

Johan was feeling frustrated about the lack of opportunities, but then he heard about the discovery of dungeons in the Lost Lands. Now there was still unexplored territory and opportunity for discoveries. And an opportunity for an ambitious young man to make his name in a budding new settlement.
