Rurik Lufgar is the Master Blacksmith in the village of Millhurst. He runs The Forge and is assisted by Avery, his apprentice. The old dwarf used to be an adventuring fighter, but he injured his knee fighting with an umber hulk, forcing him to retire. He then took up the smithy's hammer, and has been a Master Smith ever since.
A bit gruff and rough around the edges, Rurik is generally a laid-back fellow who enjoys a good mug of ale, fixing the farm implements of the villagers, and reminiscing about "his 'venturin' days."
As of right now, Rurik is still running The Forge and training young Avery.
