Aksel is a dwarf who can be found near the entrance to the Artisans' Workshop. He built the furnace that dominates the ground floor[UK]1st floor[US] of the workshop, a labour that took four and a half years, carving the rock himself. He says that he does little smithing now, leaving that to the other dwarves and to the humans that visit.
Aksel may occasionally appear at Manor Farm, asking for help with a hard Farming Guild request.
