    Bruce Willakers also know as The King of All Dwarves, was one of the first of the Dwarves to be made by Thor, and was the first Grand Paladin.



    Bruce has a large, braided, white beard, and is often seen bare-chested. He wears a combover that frequently pops up, especially when he gets surprised.


    Bruce is a proud and determined warrior with great skill. He shows great respect for other leaders of the realm while also maintaining the respect of the other dwarven kings.

    Notable Attributes[edit]


    Virgo Sunsword[edit]

    Virgo and Bruce are very close friends and have fought alongside each other many times in the past. Bruce trusted Virgo to help him defeat Virendra's dragon form--a fight which cost Virgo his eye.

    Lance Willakers[edit]

    Bruce's son. Not much is know about their relationship other than Bruce having Lance spend much of his formative years under the care of a babysitter, Douglass Winechester.

    Virendra Willakers[edit]

    Being made for each other by Thor, Virendra and Bruce are very close. They frequently wrestle with Virendra often winning (due to her own strength and not Bruce going easy on her). They have had 12 children together, including Lance, Chance, Freelance, and Bruce Two: The Sequel To Bruce Willakers Willakers. And the love and respect they had for each other caused Virendra to give her life to save Bruce from Thor, only to then evolve into a dragon which Bruce with help from Virgo, had to reluctantly kill.

    Douglass Winechester[edit]

    Lance's Babysitter. Bruce acknowledges Douglass' uncanny wisdom but does know to take it with a grain of salt.



    Bruce was created by the God of Thunder Thor, along with the other 11 dwarven families and his wife Virendra. Years after their creation, Thor decided to leave the dwarves, but while he was leaving he gave Bruce the Eternal Flame, which was given to him by Ouro'ras. Thor tied the Flame to Bruce's soul, making him the first Grand Paladin. Bruce would become known as an idol for the light, and would empower light magic users across the realm.

    Azveltara Z[edit]

    Bruce participated in Fighting Power 8. He defeated Nisovin in the quarter-finals, but lost to Kuroyami in the semi-finals. He is referred to, by the announcers, as "The Suicide King."

    A Night to Remember[edit]

    Bruce storms the Hallow's Graveyard with his companion Virgo Sunsword to assist the party in the battle with the Ageless and bring them to safety.

    The Lightbeards[edit]


    As revealed in The Lightbeards campaign, the dwarven king Ghostblade assassinated in The Last Beenu was Bruce Willakers. Shortly after, Virgo Sunsword would perform the spell Final Gift connecting not only his soul to Bruce's but also the Eternal Flame.
