Orin Ironskin is a legendary hero of Aldrazar well known as being a part of the adventuring guild "The Harbingers." To this day he resides as king of Ironskin Forge in Avelice, continuing to seek more knowledge in the prime.
The truth surrounding Orin's past as well as his heritage have remained a mystery, even to himself. Because of this, he sought to gain as much knowledge as possible, embarking on a journey for untold lore and vast secrets of the realms.
