The forge have been in my family for generations. I would rather die defending it than abandon that forge.
My forgers hammer is a relic from a long lost age. There is nothing else its equal and it has been in my family for as long as they can remember.
I have an elegant locket which hides a fine key in a tiny hidden compartment. I don't know why my Random - Family Member gave it to me but I will seek that answer no matter how long it takes.
I have a best friend that you grew up with. He has saved my life more times than I can count and I have saved his several times. I have not seen him in a few years but long to be reunited. (work with GM to create this npc)
My family has lived in the same city since it was founded. In many ways this is our city. Whenever I am away I long to return.
My regular patron's need me for regular repairs and assignments. I want to be there to help them out.
