Balin is the canonical ruler over Myrgard.He is considered a Pathfinder dwarf and was instrumental in the taking back of his homeland. Balin is not considered an Avatara by any means, but is considered a fast friend to Alric and a staunch enemy to Soulblighter.
Balin hates Ghols and all forms of undead. He sees Soulblighter and his armies as abominations and should be destroyed in their entirety. Balin forges alliances with the Light in hopes to rid his land of the Dark and allow peace to reign throughout the world once again.
Eventually Balin fathers a son named Jari.
