Reorx is the divine power of creation. He is the supreme god of Dwarves, and holds sway over Gnomes as well. Kender see him as a grandfather figure. Reorx is patron to smiths and craftsmen from all races. Reorx works with Shinare to spur dwarven economies.
With his forging hammer and the direction of the High God, Reorx forged the world, the stars, and the souls of mortals into existence from the essence of Chaos. Later, Reorx crafted the Graygem, which trapped the essence of Chaos. Reorx hates and fears Chaos, referring to him as the “Father of All and of Nothing”. Reorx to the Dwarves is known as the forger of the world, also Reorx the Life-Giver, and is praised as the god of the forge fire. Just like all dwarves, he loves to gamble, and has in the past gambled on almost anything. He has also been known to offer others a taste of his home brew Dwarf Spirits, usually just before he will make a bet.
As with all the true gods of Krynn, Reorx can take a variety of appearances at will, but his most common persona is that of Dougan Redhammer. As Dougan, he appears as a "just suitably mature" dwarf with a luxuriant black beard, long curly hair, wearing only the finest and most flamboyant clothes - but travel-stained - with bright colors and buttons of gold. His shirts are usually ruffled, and he enjoys wearing a hat with a red plume on top. He is known to wield a giant battle-axe "nearly as big as he is", and can summon the mythic hammer with which he forged the world as well, if he chooses, to take part in mortal battle. When in mortal form, Dougan enjoys dwarf spirits and drinking contests held with the same, and he is utterly unable to resist any form of gambling he comes across! Dougan notoriously journeyed with Palin Majere, Sturm Majere, and Tanin Majere to the Isle of Gargath in search of the Graygem.
Reorx is the friend of Gilean.
