History: Gozobick Gorehide was a blacksmith during the Thirty-Years’ War, trained by the blacksmiths of Death Mountain. His power over fire and earth made him able to create magma wherever, essentially having a forge at his fingertips. However, he grew tired of Hyrule and its foolish ways. Ganondorf’s army was much more appealing to Gorehide, for whatever reason. Gorehide left the mountain and found a high ranking Wizzrobe named Charcoal. Gorehide began working under Charcoal and forged powerful weapons and armor for Charcoal’s legion. For years, this served Gorehide well, able to hone his abilities unrestricted by the chieftain of the mountain. However, in the final years of the war, Charcoal’s legion, along with Charcoal himself, was destroyed. Gorehide was captured and branded for his betrayal. After the war, even with the neutrality policy of Death Mountain, Gorehide was banished by the chieftain for his betrayal against his people. Gorehide fled to Castle Dragmire, where he was fortunate enough to be welcomed due to some of the high-ranking officials recognizing his work during the war. For years, Gorehide forged weapons for the gangs in Castle Dragmire, gaining minor recognition. However, he eventually grew tired of being little more than a supplier of arms, so he left to see the world. He honed his skills throughout Hyrule, so that one day, he could forge his own kingdom.
