Dwarf Elder

Not much is known about the elder of the dwarf village.  His primary use is to introduce you to Popoie, who he’s been taking care of lately.  He’ll also tell Randi about the Magic Rope if he doesn’t have it, and after the Upper Land opens up, Randi can visit him to get the Midge Mallet.  Like a lot of leaders in the Gaia Lowlands, he’s been affected by the witch who’s sealed off the Underground Palace near his village.

During development: the Dwarf Elder made an appearance in an early version of Potos, likely as a test. His dialogue shows that his name was “Elder Aure” at this point. It can be localized as Aulë, a blacksmith and creator of the dwarves in J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth. Here, he’s saying that the Underground Palace was buried due to an earthquake a long time ago.
