Hawthorne Scargrin is a dwarven cleric hailing from the Taraken mountains far to the north. Because the dwarves delve deep, they often encounter dungeons, and as a result the Taraken dwarves have taken to worshipping the dungeons as their predatory gods. To slay a god is considered a great honour, and the priests of Taraken are also the most fervent delvers, viewed as holy fools who draw the attention of forces that others can only sacrifice to in the hopes of evading their attention.

Hawthorne is a cleric of his people, who has travelled south to learn how those of other lands understand the gods. He's a charismatic speaker but not very intellectually rigorous, and prefers problems that he can smash to bits, but he is a good listener and likes to engage in a bit of circular religious debate.
