Chain exudes confidence and strength.He tends towards speaking little and staring people right in the eyes, which puts many people off.Chain isn’t exactly good with people, a fact that might help explain his decision to become an underground explorer.

Personality:
Chain Delver is a quiet individual.He talks very little and never uses three words when two will do.The exception to this is when he’s with his cousin and exploring partner, Leleaux Dugget.When they are away from the crowds of the city, he’s as open and personable with her as he can be.She appears to be the rock that he clings to when things get hard and situations look hopeless.

Chain has little use for most other people.He treats fellow explorers he meets with respect, but most people in civilized society are pretty much a means to an end for him.The bartender exists only to provide him with beer, the shopkeeper exists to provide him with new gear, etc. He explores as much to be away from other people as he does for love of exploration.

Combat:

Chain has specialized in a quite un-dwarven weapon, the spiked chain.His nimble hands and quick reflexes have allowed him to master this weapon with efficiency, and to be able to use it to best advantage in the tight caverns he is often in.Against smaller opponents, chain usually find a choke point in the surrounding area and then wait for them to approach, using his Combat Reflexes feat to best effect.Against larger or tougher opponents, he will often attempt to Tumble past their defenses and occupy their attention long enough for his cousin Leleaux to sneak behind and gain a flanking position.Whatever he’s fighting, he’s ruthlessly efficient and rarely allows survivors that could come back to haunt him.
