Brief Backstory: August was not raised in a section of Throal where large animals were bred and had practically never seen a riding mount before the day his parents took him to be tested for magical aptitude. It was a long, exhausting, and financially draining day, as adept after adept tested young August and pronounced that they thought he probably did have an aptitude of some sort, but certainly not for their own discipline. It did not occur to any of the family to even test for Cavalryman until very late in the afternoon.
There were no Sky Raiders assessing in Throal that day, but young August even tested for Air Sailor (another conveyance he had never seen with his own eyes), and was respectfully trying to convince his parents that he could not possibly have an aptitude to be a Weaponsmith, Weaver, Potter, or any of the other magical crafting disciplines when in desperation he pointed out that he had not tested for Cavalry yet.
It was a great surprise to the whole family when the Cavalryman adept said he was clearly suitable and inquired of his father what sort of Aspirant contracts he was looking for.
After his long training as an Aspirant, spent solely within the halls of Throal, he has Initiated just in time for the great resettlement to begin, and he will finally be able to experience the outside world and feel the sun and wind upon his face like a Cavalryman should!
It is with great excitement and no small amount of trepidation that for the first time he walks his faithful mount "Silver Hammer" up to the great gates of Throal and swings himself into the saddle.
August is a medium sized dwarf of normal build and light brown hair and beard. His months spent outdoors has allowed him to develop a healthy tan. His hair is pulled back into a pony-tail and two log braids. His beard is elaborately braided with beads and ribbon.

At 2nd circle Shadowstalker a Troajin was obtained and Silver Hammer was demoted to pack pony, and subsequently killed by a cave troll.
At 4th circle, Shadowstalker was killed by a water elemental and Nightstalker was obtained.
At 5th circle, Nightstalker was killed by a crystal entity. Gloomstalker obtained.

From Obsidiman Birth: https://www.reddit.com/r/Earthdawn_West ... man_birth/
August lances in at full speed and the troajin lowers it's head -just right-. All the magic comes into line and on the heels of Alari's display of desperately elegant magic it all comes into alignment. Magic is visible, tangible, it runs down the lance like a shiver, it's present in the gleam at the brass tip, it's present in the creak of the grip as the dwarf's hand tightens in brace for the final impact. The nine hunded pound creature is lifted off its feet and smashed into the crevice behind it, earth and rock raining down over it's gushing wound for the brief moment before Ibon spills the rest of its blood across the floor in a blue-grey wave. (August's long spear is now a minor pattern item)
