Drago Dread Axe is the last survivor of the Fallinghammer Clan of Dwarves. Their strong hold was over-run by a dragon and its Orc slaves. Drago survived the attack fighting until he was overcome. Drago believes that he killed the dragon as he was knocked out by a blow to the back of his head...all he is certain of is that when he came to, the Dread-axe was embedded in the dead dragon's forehead and the orcs had fled. Drago searched for survivors, but he found none. He gathered his equipment and left Fallinghammer Hall vowing to war upon the Orcs and never make peace with them. Over the years Drago has made good his promise to such a extent that various Orc tribes consider him a deadly enemy and some Orcish Chiefs send individual Orc warriors, or small groups of Orcs after Drago, an effective way for the Orc chieftains to rid themselves of troublesome followers... Drago still hunts Orcs whenever he isn't on a quest with his friends, and even when he is on such a quest, he will attempt to kill any Orcs he runs across, even if the smart thing would be to be stealthy and let them pass...Drago is a useful friend in a fight, but sometimes his companions consider travelling with him a mixed blessing. Drago has a one track mind and once he sinks into a job, be it disarming a trap, haggling over supplies or making a sword, he ignores everything else. Another thing about Drago is that he does not give a foe an even break, he wants his foes very dead and goes out of his way to make sure that they are. He does not believe in any nosence able honorable battle, he will ambush a foe and not feel a bit bad that the foe never even knew what killed them. The Dread-axe is Drago's soul weapon, he made it as the greatest expression of his craftsmanship and believes it to be the best throwing axe that he could possibly ever make. Drago will never attempt to forge another throwing axe, believing he has attained perfection in his craft and that attempting to forge another such axe would be wasting his time and effort, not having the drive to try and improve on the design. Drago believes that his soul became a part of the axe which is why he has taken the axe's name and combined it with his own. Drago can and will make other hand weapons, at times forging hand weapons to raise money for a few weeks at a time before setting off on another Orc hunt. TYPICAL QUOATE: "Ahhhha Orcs...time for a little axe work."
