Marten Foss

Marten Foss is a middle-aged dwarf fighter and former adventurer. He now runs a small practice yard near Podol Plaza.

Marten feels a special kinship to Ren o' the Blade, who he says inspired him as an adventurer. He keeps several mementos of the historical hero along with a volume of his memoirs.

He has short black hair and a well-trimmed black beard, streaked with grey. He lost his arm decades ago to an Owlbear. He is also a member of the Order of the Gauntlet - he does not make this fact known to new acquaintances, but is not particularly secretive about it.


Marten’s daughter Vera is his best student; he hasn’t seen anyone fight like her in years. Her mother died when she was young, and the only way he knew how to raise her was a warrior. She is skilled in a wide variety of weapons and can usually defeat several simultaneous opponents without help.
