Yanplard was a mentally ill Dwarf living during the New Age. He was convinced that inanimate objects were secretly plotting against them, and spent a good percentage of his days planning for the inevitable uprising. For some reason, he was selected to join the Dwarf army, and was sent to the Elvenwood to deal with the army of Elf warriors led by Elladan. Yanplard was far more concerned with the presence of Elf statues and attacked them instead. Inexplicably, the statues won the fight.
