Finley Shields [Fionnlagh]
Blacksmith & Berserker
Finley is a large muscular man with long, light-blond hair, usually braided.
Finley [Fionnlagh] is one of the two blacksmiths that service Darford. This dour blond runs a small business on the south side of town. Although he is outpaced by his competitor (Renet’s Steel, near the town square), Finley’s goods are of higher quality, especially his shields and weapons. Dodge Gedrikson serves as his apprentice.
As a mentor, Finley is a surly teacher, capable of incredible fits of anger if one of his pieces is not turning out as planned. As such, he often has to spend time repairing his workshop, which only further slows down his work. Finley’s teaching style focuses on craft and artifice, but he can also teach pupils about controlling their anger and unleashing it when the time is right.
Finley has a pet dog named Séamas.
