|Kordan Badaxe, as depicted in Dragon #131 (1988).|
|Age||62 (presumedly in 576 CY)|
Kordan is an average-looking mountain dwarf, with his only distinguishing feature being his rare deep blue eyes. He stands four feet tall with brown hair. He weighs 150 lbs. He is a very serious dwarf, but good company. He warms up quickly to dwarves and rangers that oppose giants.
Kordan was born to mountain dwarves of common status. He began a military career, but soon grew bored of that life and volunteered to guard a new silver and mithral mine being constructed at the point when the Joten Mountains meet the Little Hills (hex H5-159, Darlene map). After a very successful year, the mine was attacked by ogres and ettins led by a group of hill giants. Kordan was knocked unconscious in the battle and woke up a few miles from the nearby town of Datmil. With the aid of a group of five adventurers, he freed his people from the giants' slave pens and earned the nickname "Badaxe" and a reputation as a hero. He built a stronghold shortly thereafter.
