GW2 Biography:

I was raised in the streets. I grew up poor, on the streets, living hand to mouth. Every day was a challenge, but like I tell my ol’ buddy Quinn, “If it doesn’t kill you, it makes you stronger.” I’ve worked hard to change my luck, but I’ve still got a long way to go. One of my biggest regrets is that I passed up an opportunity to perform in the circus. When I was young, I had the opportunity to perform in the circus, but I turned it down. To this day, I’m sorry I didn’t leap at the chance. Everyone said I was blessed by Kormir when I was young. Kormir is the goddess of order, spirit and truth. She inspires me every day to find greater courage and to seek rightness of mind, heart and action. My most useful tool is my Universal Multi-Tool. It’s a screwdriver. It’s a wrench. It’s a lateral displacer! I don’t care what you call it; this gadget is one thing I take everywhere with me.

Full Biography:

Golbain was an orphan. He grew up in the streets and learned from an early age the importance of friendship and strength in numbers. No one took pity on him and he did his best to keep to himself and solve his own problems. Golbain had a knack for gadgetry. He made hundreds of gizmos, gadgets, and tools out of scavenged parts around Divinity’s Reach that made life easier for him and his friends.

As he grew older and stronger his inventions became more complex and intricate. He was a loner and didn’t require the protection of his friends or local gangs. He lived secluded and set up defenses to keep him safe. He got by selling his inventions to people and occasionally taking on projects for steady pay. But that was not his passion.

Golbain is passionate about two things in life: Children and Food. He knows how hard it is to grow up in this dragon-haunted world and in his spare time he makes toys for children at the local orphanage. He has earned the nickname “the Toymaker” for the gadgets and gizmos he regularly drops off on the childcare center’s porch. He is also an accomplished cook. He loves to bake and brew, especially, and makes monthly visits to the orphanage to prepare meals for the children. He always refuses any compensation and is not interested in a formal job. He likes his freedom too much for that. Still, Golbain grows tired of the routine in Divinity’s Reach and seeks to explore the world. He is interested in the challenges outside of the walls of the great city and is ready to put his skills to the test.
