Olly Hammerhand was rescued by Esmerelda during a night raid on his farmstead. The dragonborn had taken over the farm and forced the local residents into slave labor. Olly and about 50 vale folk escaped with Esmerelda aboard the Fury, a dragonborn galleon.
Olly is a large, bald man with huge hands. His friends joke that was nicknamed hammerhand when he hit his hand with a hammer while hanging a picture for his wife. In reality his nickname comes from his skill as a blacksmith. Olly’s craftsmanship was reknown throughout the valley.
Now, Olly is becoming one of the leaders of the rebellion against the dragonborn. He is a friendly, but serious man. He is often the straight man to Gerans comic antics.
