A survivor of Jonbri
Bruma Hawking is one of the survivors of Jonbri, currently a master blacksmith at Karyai castle. Bruma was 26 at the sack of Jonbri, already a journeywoman blacksmith in her own right. A proud and prickly woman, she declined to search for a new husband at her comparatively advanced age. Instead, she sold her few remaining possessions to rent space in another blacksmith’s shop in Fairbanks. From these humble beginnings, Bruma focused relentlessly on her trade. Her list of customers grew even as her list of friends dwindled; she had little contact even with the other survivors of the village who stayed in Fairbanks. At the age of 32 she was accepted as a master into the Fairbanks Blacksmiths’ Guild. A year later she became the castle blacksmith at Karyai. She remains a widow.
