A Norwegian Blacksmith who, to feed his family, made magical weapons for a rival King.
One day the King invaded the Blacksmiths lands, looking to kill his family so he had no more distractions.
Knowing the King would never rest until he was found, He sent his family to a free world and destroyed all his plans. His last craft would be his greatest victory and sacrifice.
He filled his hut with magical energy and with a mighty strike of his mallet he fused himself inside a glass urn and transported himself to the shop of a local lamp tinkerer who had previously tipped him off on the Kings duplicity.
He stayed with the man for many years, whispering ideas and inventions too show his gratitude for saving his family.
Before the shop owner passed, he created a strong lamp to house the Blacksmith, passing him down to his family for generations to come.
