Despite the name Axcker, Namli's family were actually 12 generations of dwarven miners. Born in the Snowcap Peaks of Jura, Namli was groomed from birth to be the next link in the generational chain of gold miners. Her parents heaped expectations on her at every opportunity, so much so that she didn't know how to tell them that she didn't want to become a miner. It was dangerous, it was filthy, and it was dull. Her first memory was being taken into mines as a child by her father, and the darkness and cold made her so scared that all she did was scream, but they were steadfast in their vision for her future.
Namli was hardly a timid girl, but the way that her parents had built up their expectations, she was worried more about hurting them rather than how she felt. She knew she wanted to be a warrior, explore the world and save the innocent. She had her heart set on training to be a defender, an elite class of warrior that specialized in defensive combat. A single defender could repulse an entire army, so the story went. Working up the courage, she told her parents, as clearly as she could, that she had no intention of going to the mines. To her dismay, her parents were crestfallen; for weeks, they said little to her. She resigned herself to her parent's disappointment and prepared to leave for basic training, but the night before she was set to leave, her mother and father talked out their feelings to her and wished her the best in whatever she did. Namli left with confidence in her heart, carrying it through her lessons. In a cheeky turn, she wanted to fulfill her family name, taking up the battleaxe as her chosen weapon. When she graduated from Defender training, she was at the top of her class, and was given a special magical shield that she would carry forth into the outside world.
Seeing the plains, the sea, and the vast cities gobsmacked the young dwarf. She wanted to venture from one corner of the world to the other, and nearly did in her travels. She made a small fortune from outdrinking boisterous louts in the local taverns, and would always spend a coin on new equipment. She was so invested in travel and adventuring, that she tended to neglect her personal yearning for companionship. She often adventured alone, and the few adventurers she did travel with were often within relationships themselves. She had once again resigned herself to disappointment, her own this time, but as she was turning over a gold coin after ordering an ale, she thought about finding a courtesan at the brothel down the street. After wrestling with the decision for an hour, she decided to try it and she selected a beautiful human companion who gave her an incredible first time. Post-coitus, her lover told Namli about the Borsites, of whom she was a worshiper, and the curious Namli accompanied her to her next meeting. It was one of the most incredible nights of Namli's life, and she had found a new community, one that would never disappoint her.
Bors himself visited her group one evening, and when he saw her powerful frame, he knew she was a warrior of incredible power. He offered her a place within his Elite Guard, and she accepted immediately. It was on Ossinia that she met a fellow warrior of equal strength, a half-orc named Vrugar. Their first evening was spent drinking each other into stupor, and the first night was spent making love in a feather bed. They have been inseparable since.
I was a bit intimidated by drawing dwarf proportions, but I think she came out pretty good. Gotta love a girl with big arms and big tits. :D
