Tobias Aetos was a short lived figure in the sphere of the Outpost, as a smith, he began a smithy and shaped the walls Zietal Mar held until the end.
Tobias, unlike his father, was never rich. Tobias's father died in a training regiment accident many years ago, and he had never seen his mother. At the funeral, Toby was too young to quite understand the agreements of the contract he was handed and received none of the wealth of his father. Returning home, and uncaring for his father, he ruffled through his father's many things looking for anything of value or potential worth. He saw books on how to write; how to draw, no, no, he did not need these things; drawing and writing, those were for the rich and wealthy, he was taught this many times. He searched deeper and deeper through hundreds, what felt like thousands, of building plans, until he found something. A book with a rose-gold bookmark delicately placed on page 5; a number Tobias wouldn't forget, for on this page, as he reached to remove the bookmark; already wondering what it was worth, he read a small transcript the bookmark reflected. It lit up with a almost heavenly glow. "Forging is many dwarf's key to luxury and good health, a good smith is not only good luck to themselves, but also their allies." Tobias's father always spoke of luck! He read deeper, again and again the book mentioned how much luck forging and hammering steel would bring. It was dusk when he started reading and it was noon by the time he finished. Tobias sold the bookmark for a book on the basics of a smithy... Skipping ahead, Tobias set sail for the Outpost, his equivalent to a holy book in hand, all his life he's been a common smith, but today, he thinks, things will change for the better.
Actions in the Outpost
Tobias, while short lived, placed a few prominent monuments and cemented the building style of Fort Thidir. Tobias designed the walls of the city, short, but stout and thick, solid walls made of carved stone. Tobias also designed the Skyforge, his personal forge placed high above on the top of a mountain, and created an outlook with a small bridge attaching it to the Upper Holding. The Skyforge and the outlook would become a new shop under different management than Tobias.
