Please provide a physical description of yourself.
I’m built like my Highland Scottish ancestors tall, bulky and muscular with bright green eyes that miss nothing, and a ruddy complexion. Jet black hair that waves around my shoulders. I keep it pulled in a ponytail while I work in my forge.
Please tell us a little about yourself.
I’m a blacksmith, bladesmith by trade. I have a forge in Martha’s Vineyard, but chose to move it to Colorado Springs due to magical interference.
The anvil, hammer and chains were passed down to me from many generations of blacksmiths in my family. As with my ancestors before me, I am able to craft ordinary items for mortals, but also daggers, swords and weapons with magic powers for witch’s or warlocks. Those of course are the most fun and the most dangerous. I vet my clientele very well.
Who is the significant other in your life?
Josie. She is a yoga instructor in my estranged sister’s studio.
