Halfdan is a dwarf from Thraxon and a cousin of Thrang Silversmith. He carries a double-headed ax with golden inlay and short sword, along with a helmet. He is a good cook and carries a cauldron that has been in his family for three generations. After his second adventure, he is made a minister in the dwarf realm of Thraxon. He is very fond of ale, especially the spiced ale of Techen. When Thrang leads the third adventure, Halfdan takes his place temporarily as minister.
He was once on an adventure when his company took some prisoners. He did not vote to kill the prisoners, nor did he try to stop the executions. To this day he regrets their deaths.
