A dwarf rescued by Rob the sorcerer from a Goblin army in Ravenhold. He has a burly build, with black hair and green eyes.
Balin was captured by the goblins inhabiting Ravenhold while exploring some tunnels nearby. He is a miner by trade, and grew up in a small town near the mountains. He is now a loyal friend or Rob’s, after Rob saved him from a horrible death by Goblins/Tuska. While a wanderer at heart, he makes his base of operations in the town of Adureth.
