I will stand my ground. As the eldest child of the Dugri family, Kuro was raised with the whole tribe's attention on her and it was an attention she relished in. Her upbringing was steeped in privileged. Some of which helped her to become a more accomplished and capable leader, but an equal amount being used to simply for her advantage. She is spoiled in this way and yet the worst of her conceit comes less from her entitlement and more from her willingness to use any and all benefits of nobility to keep her goals. Some would call this dishonorable. Kuro would argue the mismanagement of resources is a far worse crime, but this reasoning really only goes so far as to justify her arrogance. Even still, there are few among her detractors who would have openly opposed her even as a child since the only thing more infamous about her was her ambition. And she made no attempt to conceal her intentions or her methods. It was simply not a fight anyone would win if just by proxy of Kuro's position. [break][break]
Won't be turned around.Kuro's rise to power came naturally after the retirement of her father, the former cheiftan. Despite her character flaws and accused corruption, she has thus far made an agreeable leader. She makes informed and effective politial actions that benefit the tribe as a while and is always up front about her actions. Her motives don't seem to lie in greed or gluttony, thus as long as she creates no ill-effects for the public at large, she remains reletively undisputed. Although, gorons are easy to sway from one political move to another. At least, Kuro thinks so. [break][break]
And I won't back down. Currently Kuro is in her fifth year of leadership and has been watching the plight of Hyrule very closely. As she sees it, Hyrulean politics have yet to truly effect Labryanna in a significant way. While Labryanna's previous ruler used Hyrule's power vacuum as an opportunity to annex the country, nothing much came of it other than a death and a change in power. Any possible threats that may bleed over into Labrynna haven't come to fruition. For the time being, Hyrule's government has turned into civil unrest that has made the country all by unruly for any domestic or foreign power. As much she has no interest in wading into such a tumultuous situation and fails to see the benefit of providing aid. However, Labrynna officials continue to focus their attention on Hyrulean problems in a way that she outwardly opposes. If the situation continues to escalate and sacrifices more Labrynna efforts without clear profit, then her noncompliance may become less of conscientious objection and more of an active opposition.
Longsword: Crafted by Biggoron themself, Kuro wields an ornate two-handed sword with a crushing weight. It stands at about five feet long and a foot and a half wide at the guard. Bonecrusher, as Kuro will sometimes refer to it also has three pairs of extra guards on the sides of the blade. How this assists in combat is unclear, but it looks badass [break][break]
Fire Resistance: The goron race reside in hot climates, and were once a race of stone, making them immune to the touch of flames. [break][break] Tough Skin: Because of their evolution from a stone race, the goron people still retain a tough skin that allows protection from blunt weapons. [break][break] Weak to Water: Gorons do not bode well with water (however this does not mean that they cannot swim!) and will take extra damage from water type magic. [break][break]

[attr=class,bulk] Quick footsteps echoed deep into the caves of the Rolling Ridge as Kuro marched through the halls. An entourage of retainers and advisors followed suit as she spoke allowed to herself more than to them. Each official listened attentively for her words on their area of authority and pealed off from the group as their tasks were assigned. Kuro didn't spare a look back at the dwindling accompaniment, secure in knowing that they were follow their orders to the letter. Her confidence came not from an authoritative hold on her people nor from righteous belief in loyalty, but simply from that fact that they had no reason not to listen to her when she was right about most things. Neither her pace nor her proclamations slowed even when she was left alone. She passed by the guards at arms as if she were a celebrity waited for upon baited breathe and when she reached the end of the corridor the large, metal studded doors were opened for her. [break][break]
Kuro's throne room was not particularly ornate or extravagant. The red stone was decorated in spare gold banners and carpet with torches hanging on the walls for use in the evenings. Her throne was stood in the middle of the chamber, raised slightly upon an elevated level to differentiate between her and the rest of the world. It's black goron steel was accented by gold rivets and embellishments. It would surely make an uncomfortable seat for any with a soft hide, but her tough skins felt perfectly content upon something as sturdy as her. Yet this morning, she did not stop and seat herself. [break][break]
Instead, she strode forwards to the balcony framing her throne room. Through the middle of the three openings, she stepped onto the mezzanine and postured over the rock carved railing. From the northernmost peak of the mountain, she could overlook the whole of Labrynna as if she were a figurehead for the country, carved into the mountainside itself. Many gorons below her went about their business all the way down to the foot of the ridge. A few noticed her positions on high outside of her throne room, perhaps even pointing her out to others. To them, she flashed a sharp, bright smile to reward their recognition. She turned a cunning eye towards to the capital building of Labrynna city, appearing almost hungry or vindictive. Even further beyond it lay the lands of Hyrule, lost in confusion and Holodrum, ever the isolationist. However, her aspiring didn't last long as she left her terrace almost as soon as she had come. [break][break]
Only now did she step to her throne. Although the piece was decades old, a legacy of goron past, she seemed to fit into the seat perfectly, as if it had always been made for her. Her charming menace only seemed o grow when position in such a place of command. Even still, an attendant ventured to approach her with request of an audience from residents of the city. With a smooth motion of her fingers, she signaled the attendant to show the visitors in. She reflected on the matter that may be brought before her. With the structure of goron government as it was, the issue could easily be addressed by several other more specific representatives before her and yet she did not shun conferences with those who asked for them. Kuro reasoned that any soul who wished to meet with her should be allowed to do so if they felt they could handle it. Her gaze was mighty and dominating as she watched citizens make their way into her presence and she spoke with the sound of all distant goron leaders behind her. "Who wishes to speak with the goron chieftain?"
