Bustas&Dragons: The Lost Mine of Phandelver
Changing into a bear.
Young hill dwarf.
Spent life so far helping his parents in their mine, studying stories about animals, trekking in local caves and forests to find new animals to study.
Thirst for knowledge.
Joined this party to see more of the world/more animals and to make money to send back to his parents who have fallen on hard times.
