"My reasons for coming to this land are twofold. One, to pay a debt to an old comrade from the days before the Calamity by protecting the villages here. Two, to spread the battle techniques perfected by my ancestors, that our proud line of warriors does not end with me."
Born in Abalathia's Spine to the descendants of warriors, Curious Gorge is a young Hellsguard who seeks to restore the glory of his ancestors. Along with his brother, Broken Mountain, he strives to unlock the secrets of ancient techniques and master the all-but-forgotten art of the warrior. Some years after his elder sibling had departed their homeland to share their martial knowledge with the rest of Eorzea, Curious Gorge tired of merely training, and left the mountains to put his skills into practice. He joined the acclaimed Company of Heroes, where his fledgling talents soon reached their full potential. Though the company disbanded following the Seventh Umbral Calamity, Curious Gorge continued his mercenary career, taking every opportunity to reintroduce to the world the brutal majesty of the warrior's way.
Fighter's Armor: A warrior's garb, ensorcelled to bind one's inner beast more closely to the sword hand. Examples of such trappings are to be found throughout Eorzea, for an ancient code demanded that when a warrior betook herself to gentler pursuits, her axe be beaten into ploughshare and her armor bound to the land where its erstwhile owner experienced her hero's journeys.
Bravura: A battleaxe from the lost forges of Abalathia's Spine. Rich in leavings of fallen stars, the mountains were once home to blacksmith clans who developed secret techniques to work these sky-metals in living crucibles of molten rock. Alas, a secret too jealously kept is knowledge destined for oblivion; when the last of the clans died out, so did the method.
