Jarahk Ironhide

Warforged Sword Mage


Jarahk Ironhide's Journal

First appearance in Arc 1, Episode 1

HISTORY & BACKSTORY

Jarahk Ironhide, Warforged Swordmage, is a founding member of Group 1. Born from arcane magics, Ironhide struck out with the group for a life of adventure. He has been a steadfast member of the group, standing alongside them against vampires, cultists, and even each other.

After the group saved Talia Padraig, Ironhide was one of the few who stayed in Winterhaven as a knight. As the group grew restless, they all rejoined Thoril and Trias in Overdale. (more below)


APPEARANCE AND PERSONALITY


Ironhide wants to do whatever is necessary to get the job done, no matter what the cost. He is a straight shooter, no holds barred. He would rather ruffle a few feathers if it means doing what needs to be done.

Ironhide is also a very prideful creature. He will not back down from a fight and will challenge those who he thinks are trying to undermine him. He also has little tolerance for people who assume they have more power than they actually do.

After some success in Overdale, Ironhide soon started to question the powers-that-be in the town, talking about having either an open election to oust interim-mayor Carter, or stage a coup. However, due to events with Thoril and Carter unfolding, the group was forced to flee from the town. Ironhide wanted to stay and fight for their honor but was overruled and went along with the group.

As the group met in Winterhaven for the treaty with Overdale, Ironhide supported more aggressive terms, not wanting to cede any ground for what he saw as no apparent reason. After Malchus agrees to the terms that the group will never venture south to Overdale again, Ironhide once again went with the group for the sake of solidarity, albeit begrudgingly.

The group continued on, searching for and defeating the barbarian Drock. The group exited the tomb and went to a nearby town to recuperate. Upon entering the town, Ironhide was assaulted and shown scorn by many of the townsfolk. They soon learn that they are seventeen years in the future and that Carter created an army of Warforged, terrorizing the western part of Theria.

After reuniting with Talia Padraig and Ian Serverus, now Lady and Lord of Winterhaven, the group learned more of what happened in their absence. The group then met with the White Ravens and Briahna, where it is decided they were to raise an army against Carter and Overwatch, starting with Winterhaven. After once again meeting in Winterhaven, Ironhide and Malchus came to blows over how things were handled. The battle was resolved and the group continued gathering allies for the war.

In order to get one town, Aubrey, on their side, the group was tasked with eliminating a nest of vampires nearby. Though many in the group wanted to eradicate the vampires, Ironhide saw the opportunity to gain even more allies, much to the consternation of his group. Ironhide pursued his idea, though, and after much debate, the vampire lord was spared to be put on trial. However, before that could occur, Edward was slain by Thoril, ending the argument between Ironhide and his companions
