Düren MacValgar was born in the mountainous dwarf-lands north of the Three Cities area and spent his early life on a successful New Deposits team, which he eventually came to lead. When one of his expeditions led to the discovery of a cache of artifacts and he was not allowed to keep a single one, he abandoned the company and struck off on his own in search of relics and adventure.
His combat style is an amalgam of self-taught techniques cobbled together to survive brushes with the dangerous denizens often encountered when scouring the undermountain depths for untapped minerals. His psionic potential was manifested during an unfortunate encounter with illithid early in his career. Like many dwarven excavators, he learned to commune with earth spirits to speed the search for deposits and stay aware of assorted underground dangers. His instincts to defend his allies are a holdover from his days as an expedition leader, when he was responsible to bring everyone back home from a job.
