BACKSTORY: In his youth he worked the mines as was expected of him, at one point saving a colleague during a dangerous mine collapse.

For a while, his clan lived "in the air", as dwarves refer to the surface world, and they employed a number of guard dogs to protect their camp from goblin and orc raids. There was one dog in particular - Spot (it means something different in dwarvish) - that Davian was fond of.

Then, one day, Spot sensed an orc raiding party, alerting Davian's clan in time, but taking four arrows in the process.
