Xerlon Splintershield

Description:

Eldest son to Davked Splintershield and heir to Splintershield Hall. Older brother to Zenith.

Fifty years ago, Xerlon made big news in the Cauldron area by commanding a large cadre of mercenaries in the jungles surrounding the city in order to locate the lost shrine to Moradin, god of the dwarves. Built at the time of Cauldron’s founding, the Holy Shrine of Moradin had been lost to the hungry vegetation of the Amedio Jungle. Xerlon, driven by a bout of religious zeal, took his band of loyal followers and hired a small army of mercenaries to comb the jungle outside the city . The shrine was finally re-discovered and the bloodthirsty pack of bugbears who had made the shrine their home were eventually annihilated. The shrine had remained in operation for a full twenty years after that until the local Caldronites moved their Moradin worship to the more accessible Splintershield Hall in the city itself. Now the jungle has reclaimed the lost shrine once again.

In more recent years, Xerlon has led his sizable army of followers against the mighty red dragon, Hookface, and his brood. Xerlon has not returned to Cauldron in over two years, yet word continues to make its way back to the city that the sturdy dwarf and his companions seem to be holding their own against the draconic threat. It is rumored that a large basecamp and trading post has been established at the foot of the small volcanic peak that Hookface has holed up in.
