This character was created for my graduate thesis project. Torvald is a Dragonsmith, a special kind of blacksmith that can forge rare metals using Dragonfire. His hammer is named Dragonfall.
Dragonsmiths are made when a human is given a gift of blood from a dragon. A man named Magnus Brann is believed to have been the first Dragonsmith. He was so affected by the dragon's blood that his entire body became covered in scales, and his features changed to the point that he seemed half dragon. Because of this, he was nearly as resilient to Dragonfire as a true dragon and created the legendary smith's hammer, Dragonfall. Many years later, a sickly child named Torvald met with a dragon and was gifted with its blood, and was given Dragonfall on completing his training.
