Mostali Iron Caste Renegade (Dwarf)

When Mostal first made the Dwarves, he made them of metals, gold and silver and tin and so on. When Chaos came, he made the Iron Dwarves to serve as an army, and the Clay Dwarves as an emergency measure to substitute for any injured metal dwarves. Then he died when the Spike was destroyed and most of the higher castes of Dwarves were destroyed. Now Clay and Iron Dwarves mostly have to try and do the work of the other castes and Iron Dwarves were mainly made to protect and to kill. But no other caste but Iron and Clay can be made now and one by one, the Elder Dwarves perish.

You have served as a soldier for centuries. Much of it is a blur, for you long lived more as a machine than a man. You remember bits and pieces. You think you faced Arkat once and lost. Not him personally... there would be nothing left of you... but you think his armies stormed some city you defended and you escaped the fall of the city. You distinctly remember helping to load a cannon in an emergency, filling it with scraps of metal, then carving open Dragonnewts and crazed Dragon-worshipping humans with it during the Second Age. You remember the Clanking City and you definitely remember fighting a strange metal automaton there. You remember fighting Carmanians over... something... those horses of theirs scare easily and you do not.

And you remember a machine, a machine that erased most of your memories, so past traumas did not gradually overwhelm you; you accepted that at the time. Then something went wrong. For all the bad memories, you suddenly realized you didn't want to give up the good memories too. Maybe those humans you talked to during your last job, when you got hired out to help them, somehow contaminated you.

So you ran away and now you are trying to find your place in this world. But you have all your memories since your last erasure and a few precious memories that never went away... and some bad ones. But you have learned that's how life is.

You know other Mostali want to repair the World Machine but you weren't made for that. You were made to fight. But now you will choose your own fights and find your own cause. Once you figure out what a good cause is.

You can be male or female; in Mostali society, there's no clear and obvious differences between the two. You may have chosen to copy the style of your gender in one of the other societies or you may well remain ambiguous.

Take this playbook if you want to dig into an alien mindset and be an eternal warrior now in search of a purpose.
