age / dob / etc.
how old are you? is this young/old for your race? which season were you born in? do you know an actual birthdate or should we determine that plus dnd zodiac sign? tell me about your birth.
thirty-six years old, still considered young since dwarves aren't thought of as adults until 50. still need to figure out date of birth.
WHO RAISED YOU?
are these your birth parents? describe your relationship with your birth parents or pseudo parents at present.
raised by her birth parents, deardelle "dearie" and randan "randy" quartzheart, and is still close to both of them, though she might be a little closer to her father. her mother is a typical dwarf mom and spends a lot of time looking after all her kids and meddling in their lives. her father is a blue collar worker and is the type who'd do anything for his kids. he recognizes kath's musical and magical abilities as her being special and gifted, and her mom just kind of tolerates her unusual interests and expects her to grow out of it any day.
ARE YOU CLOSE TO YOUR (NATURAL OR PSEUDO) FAMILY?
is there anyone in your family who is in/famous? celebrated? notorious? is there anyone in your family you hate?
it's impossible to not be close to her family, they will find their way into your business one way or another. kath is probably the most infamous of her immediately family since she's considered unusual, but the most famous is the lavafall branch of her family, especially her cousin duris since he's known for the mining technology he makes. there's no one in her family that she truly hates, though she thinks some of her brothers are really annoying (lookin' at you, garth), and has a rivalry with her younger sister.
how many siblings do you have? surrogate? non traditional? are you close to them?
kath is one of thirteen siblings, her being the older of only two girls. the siblings and birth order are: randek (randy jr), bardir (bard), gartharn (garth), tybrek (ty), kathnip (kath), regmir (reggie), magmond (mag), hulbek, gernik, bryndora (bryn), bramrom (bram), armrin (armie), dalrus
are you close to your grandparents/important elders? are they alive? who are they? what do you call your elders?
well, i think in her dwarven city/village you have more than just your grandparents, anyone who is in a high position within the community is your elder. but her grandparents on both sides are still alive since her branch of the family seems relatively young, though i'm wondering if they all live in the same settlement as the rest of her family? anyway, i think they use tranditional grandparent names, and her mom's parents are nana and papa and dad's parents are gram and gramp.
EXTENDED FAMILY ─
are you close with your extended family? is it common to know/do you know the current locations, spouses, children, birthdates, schooling, occupations of all family members? how does your family keep in contact or keep track of this info?
she's expected to keep track of everyone and know what's going on with them, but thinks it's impossible. she generally knows what's going on with her siblings, and relies on her mom to keep up with everything else since she'd be meddling and gossiping with everyone anyway.
