Chains of Silver and Blood
Sondahk the Elder
Sondahk is a tall man with sharp features and long fingers, dressed in ample clothes too warm for the climate of his island. He has a scar on the side of his face and arms, burnt mark from an accident in his forge.
Sondahk is a thaumaturge, with the ability to forge copper into armor that lets ghosts manifest even under the harsh rays of the sun. Having learned the secrets of his trade at the hand of his mother, he has spent his whole life providing these marvels to local nobles, and acquired a good deal of fame in the Fiery Isles.
Occasionnally, he will find someone with the gift and takes her as an apprentice, and most local thaumaturges are bound to him in some way.
