Jamven was a human merchant with offices located in Glitterhaegen and Shadow Port—he had been known as a dealer in ancient Dwarven artifacts, and was recently embroiled in a trading scheme gone horribly wrong. Realizing he had discovered an ancient dwarven artifact of great power, he decided that the only thing to do was to return it directly to the Dwarf King. Upon arriving in Forge (only to discover that the Dwarf King was away), he was intercepted by Bellamin, the Royal Dwarven Armorer. Unwilling to give the item to Bellamin, he was found mortally wounded as Alatir, Branan, Marduke, Nerryn and Serine burst onto the scene. Only time will tell if his sacrifice was worth it.
