Campaign of the Month: April 2012
Short, squat and muscular. Balding with black, close-cropped hair, wears a short goatee, but often goes without shaving long enough to sport a beard occasionally. Generally jocular and easy-going, if he becomes serious you can be sure that some kind of trouble is afoot.

He is the fourth son of famed artist/illustrator Norman Rockwell and his wife Mary, the noted scholar.
As a child, his time was divided between his father’s art studio, his mother’s study, or playing and attending class alongside the children of certain Eastern nobles, some of whom he maintains friendships with to this day.
In an effort to help keep Dirk and his friends out of trouble, Norman organized a local chapter of the Ranger Scouts, regularly taking the kids into the forest to practice their skills and to regale them with tales of heroes, adventures, and daring-do to capture their imaginations and, hopefully, help shape their morality. Despite his father’s efforts, Dirk did not decide to affiliate himself with any of the gods, but he did develop a sympathy for the Church of Light.
As he grew older, he began traveling with his parents; attending various art shows with his father, or visiting the Library of Bletherad to assist Mary with her research or attend the symposiums where she would present her findings. He has known Malkin Falimede from a young age, and calls him “Uncle Malkie,” much to Malkin’s chagrin.
Dirk’s keen sense of adventure and sense of right and wrong led him to join Legion of Northmoor to follow in footsteps of the heroes of his childhood. Over the years, he has participated in many campaigns with the Legion, including the search for the Glave of the Old Ones. Dirk was not among the group that initially encountered CrIsis during the Legion’s attempts to recover the Glave, but he did rejoin the group before the companies parted ways. This gave him the chance to meet CrIsis, including Cava, who he thinks can be an ass but is otherwise quite likable.
His current mission is undisclosed, but it is believed the Church of Light has asked him meet up with CrIsis for purposes of their own.
