Gomgrim Zekeif is a robust middle aged dwarven cleric.
Gomgrim Zekeif is a robust middle aged dwarf. As a young dwarven lad he was not keen to follow the builder’s path his father had and joined the army. After his first couple battles he found himself in awe of the clerics that healed and tended to the wounded. Gomgrim asked to leave the army for the priesthood and was instead given leave to join the clergy but also kept his commission as a soldier. Gomgrim is a firm believer that the Army exists to protect the Dwarven people and so his dedication to Inalea seemed a natural fit. There is a strong tradition of cooperation between Dwarven priests and their military so over the years he has spent much of his time assigned to serve active soldiers and guards. A few years ago Gomgrim’s unit was over run while trying to protect a dwarven settlement nearly all of his company were killed. As he lay wounded a powerful force entered his mind the sapphire dragon Danadrath lent him the strength to survive while asking for information about the force that had swept over the town. When re-enforcements reached the town a day later Gomgrim was holding the few survivors together in a cellar. Since then Gomgrim has learned that Danadrath is a great general and ally of the dwarves who was taken by surprise by some devious plot to use the town as bait for an invading army. The Army was routed a few days later according to the plan but Danadrath bitterly resents the fact that he was not told about the trap. He would have much preferred to withdraw the civilians and his troops rather than “waste them as bait”. The sapphire dragon takes personal pride in ‘his’ troops skill and victories, and takes their losses personally as well. Donadrath has been in increasing contact with Gomgrim and has begun assigning him to small veteran units for special missions where Gomgrim’s martial background and clerical power are put to good use keeping his allies on their feet.
