Bismarck was the child of a human and elf pairing that established peace between the elves of Jintaira and the human nation of Caramos. Growing up in this environment turned Adolph into a skilled diplomat. He made himself a war hero during Caramos’ war with the Red Dwarves of the northern mountains by holding off a superior enemy force via a series of bluffs for three weeks before reinforcements could arrive and secure his position. After the war the Imperial Cult employed him as a military adviser in the Council of Twelve.
