Halzar Hackshield (born 192 DA) is a dwarf shaman. The son of a prosperous dwarven family, Halzar displayed an incredible ability to communicate with the spirits of the natural world from a young age. Halzar believes that it was his affinity with Istria's spirits which has caused him to be summoned to Eilthyra. He understands this calling as a test put forth by the Great Spirits to see him achieve greatness for his family name. Immediately after Halzar was summoned a spectral bear appeared to him. Halzar gleaned that it was a spirit of one of the first bears on Istria, and he understood its appearance as a sign that like a bear he must seek to embody the protective instincts that sustain the natural world.
At 23 years old Halzar is relatively young for a dwarf. He stands 4'6" and weighs 180 lbs. Halzar keeps his beard astutely groomed, and sports a magnificent mustache. He adorns himself in the finest Istrian silks, and wears a wide-brimmed hat decorated with a roc's feather.
