* TechnicalPacifist: All of his experiments in Black Necromancy were on people who were already dead. [[spoiler: He also never harms anyone directly until the final confrontation with the player, instead manipulating the Dark Elves and the Molochean hand to do his bidding.]]

* DisproportionateReward: Downplayed: From Maxim's point, it's even too little help to give a healer robot to the one who saved the work of his life, assemble him a powerful gun and teach him Mastery, but that's all he can do. From the Living One's point, it's slightly disproportionate because the PC only has [[spoiler: to keep that broken camera from crash site with him.]]

* DisproportionateReward: Downplayed: From Downplayed - from Maxim's point, it's even too little help to give a healer robot to perspective, giving the one person who saved the his life's work of his life, assemble him a healing robot, a powerful gun and teach him Mastery, but that's all he can do. Mastery training in Repair is far too little. From the Living One's point, point of view, it's slightly disproportionate because the PC only has [[spoiler: to keep that broken camera from crash site with him.]]

The King of all dwarves, who was forced to sentence the entire clan to banishment under the threat of a world war between dwarves and elves (whose woods are now being destroyed with dwarven technology, which was given to human by said clan). Soon after he begun to suspect that he was deceived ( [[spoiler:he was indeed, by Dark Elves]]) and felt himself a traitor. The guilt finally broke him and drove him to exile. However, PC can convince him that it wasn't a treason, while his exile ''is''.

* LongLived: He's a dwarf and an old one; old enough to ''personally'' remember the last dwarven civil war. [[spoiler: And in the ending where he retakes the throne, he lives exceptionally long even by Dwarven standards, reaching an age of 800 before passing away.]]



* WarIsHell: He knows that better than anyone.

A dwarf who, unlike his kin, wants to study magic. He went to Qintarra, but no elf wanted him as apprentice, until Wrath, a local jerk, agreed to teach him in exchange for life-long servitude. Decades later, Jormund became fed up with the elves and Wrath in particular but still could'nt leave due to his contract. Good news: Wrath has been conviniently murdered. Bad news: Jormund is now accused in his murder.

* IneptMage: Played with. He's actually quite competent, knowing fully Force and Fire (yes, he even knows ''Desintegrate'' spell). But he's a dwarf, meaning each his spell has double mana cost [[note]]and Desintegration is too much dangerous/broken to hand it to NPC[[/note]]. He does occasionally smite his foes with fireball or lightning bolt, but more often he turns into a Fire Elemental (a single most mana-draining spell) and drops unconscious in half a minute.
