Diedrich maintains a vestige of his youth through the mild rejuvenative effects of many, many healing potions and recuperative magic. He is handsome, though often looks like he needs a shave. Dark brown eyes and hair would make him seem an average man if not for his smirk and extroverted mentality. His body is tough and muscular, but he is not burly by any means.
Diedrich is a smarmy, roguish, and flirtatious man, always stopping to pay a lady a compliment and toss her a wink. He has a somewhat extremist personality in that people either really like him or really hate him, but he accepts that as the way he is and doesn't worry too much about changing. Despite his mercenary profession, he has a good heart and refuses to take work that might mean compromising his peculiar moral code.
As a young man, Diedrich was to be a blacksmith like his father, and learned some of the minor tricks of the trade. Banging horseshoes was not his idea of a great life, though, and he entertained dreams of becoming a great adventurer. He left home young to pursue that dream, traveling with various groups and becoming a skilled swordsman. It was during the height of his "career" that the Third War came, and he threw in with several local militias attempting to fight off the Scourge.
In the height of conflict, Diedrich was wounded grievously. It took him many months to recover, and by then his spirit had nearly been broken. He spent a great deal of time relearning how to use a sword, and he still isn't the warrior he once was. Despite hitting thirty and drinking often, he is still in good physical condition, though the scars left on his body show the story of his life.
Diedrich has recently overcome his usual womanizing ways and fallen in love with a particularly unusual night elven female named Frelle. The two were married, and have taken part in a number of wild and insane adventures with their friends.
