Kirthaven, Twilight Highlands (WoW) |
Jade Forest, Pandaria (Lore)
|Relative(s)||Rhona Irongrin (daughter)|
|Companion(s)||Fendrig Redbeard, Fenella Darkvire|
At a young age, Carrick discovered that he was able to communicate with rocks. This made his parents suggest to him that he may want to become a shaman, but he knew that mining would have been his life’s goal. This made him become one of the greatest miners of Azeroth. Growing older, he built a family and had a daughter, Rhona.
During the second war, Carrick lived and might have ruled the village of Northeron. During a Dragonmaw attack on top of red dragons, his village was raided and destroyed. Carrick watched from a hill afar but was not able to reach them in time. His daughter was one of casualties and he wasn’t unable to speak with stone from that day on. He would eventually force everyone away.
The Jade Hunters
Following his time in the Twilight Highlands, he would spend his time in Ironforge next to the Great Forge. One the Council of Three Hammers decided to place him on team with Fenella Darkvire and Fendrig Redbeardin order to help rebuild the Jade Serpent statue. Carrick accepted the task, if only because he felt his reputation was at stake.
After arriving on Pandaria and aiding in the reconstruction, Foreman Raiki would organize a jade hunt to make up for lack of jade present. During this jade hunt the three dwarves would be tricked by Fei into going into the same mine, a fact that pleased none of them. As the three ventured deeper into the cave Carrick would decide to strike the Mogu statue that blocked their way. However after doing so he could begin to hallucinate it as a dragonmaw orc and after striking it once more, found face to face with his daughter. Coming back to his senses he then communicated with the stone and was able to successfully open the path way.
After briefly resting and with Fendrig opening the next path, the three dwarves found a cave full of gems and when Fenella ordered her pet golem, Koveth, to dig it caused the ceiling to fall down. When running for the exit he and Fendrig would be forced to fight off spiders until Fenella rescued and then sacrificed Koveth to give them enough time to escape. While looking around the room they ran into, they found a great amount of Jade and the Scrolls of the Celestials. Reading the scrolls gave the three dwarves insight which allowed them to realize they could still do great thing, even after they believed that they couldn't.
As such when the three left the cave as friends, their prior animosity forgotten, and brought forth the jade they found to the Foreman. Uncaring that they contest was over the three decided to thank Fei for getting them together, only to be shocked when she ran away. After chasing her to a hill Fei then turned into the Jade Serpent and flew into the sky, leaving the dwarves speechless.
