Subject  Resh's past

Unlike most other dwarves, Resh was not content to stay underground his
whole life. He lived in the hills as a child, but spent most of his time
exploring the forests near his home.

During his explorations, he gained many skills, including the ability to
sneak invisibly through the forests. As soon as he could, he left home
to move to Solace in order to be amongst the trees.

Resh tended to stay away from large cities, as he felt closed-in amongst
the man-made buildings.

As he grew older, his continued travels brought him from the forests to
the seas. When his eyes met the infinite seas, he was immediately
captured by the idea of exploring them.

He dreamt of the complete sense of freedom that he would get from being
able to sail wherever he wanted. Being a dwarf, however, Resh resolved
to let this dream stay a dream.

He put aside thoughts of the sea and made plans to join the 7 Kingdoms,
thinking that spending his life with fellow dwarves underground would
bring him happiness, since it should be what any dwarf would want.

While reluctantly preparing for 7 Kingdoms, he happened to run into
another dwarf who had just left the 7 Kingdoms clan as the result of a
conflict.

This dwarf warned Resh about Loror, the leader of 7 Kingdoms, and
strongly advised him to stay away from the 7 Kingdoms clan. When Resh
heard this, he decided against joining 7 Kingdoms and began to search
for a new clan.

When he heard about Mariner, his old dreams of exploring the seas were
resurrected and he excitedly realized that he could spend his life doing
what he loved doing most, exploring nature.

He travelled directly to the seashore and searched for members of
Mariner. Soon after he arrived, he met Ralyn, and asked for permission
to join him in his journeys across the seas.

Now, Resh hopes to join Ralyn in his fleet and be part of the Mariner
clan.
