Dariush is the weaponsmith that provides weapons for the adventurers of the city. He's one of the lizardfolk, a worker in steel and iron that could make most smiths blush with his personal recipes. Although he still hammers out the impurities, sending out sparks as he does so, Dariush is one of the few who know how to make crucible steel. How he got such knowledge, it's unknown, but he can make swords made from crucible steel (Steel II, always Masterwork, +2; and harder to break since it mostly contains iron crystals sheathed in carbon). Dariush can, learning the secrets from the Dragonborn some time earlier.
