When the party first met Kern he was dressed in priestly robes, decorated with moons and dwarves runes. He initially traveled dressed in sturdy traveling clothes and armor that looks like it was scavenged from Empire troops. His battered great-axe looked likewise scrounged.
He now has new armor and a glaive, both decorated in honor of the Goddess Sharlindar.
In the past he has expressed dislike of working with Dragonborn and only sullenly accepted Mac’s presence with the party. However he appears to have changed, going so far as to give Mac a gift.
