Runt Ironfurnace (more commonly called Runt) is a male villager that was born and raised in Villagetown and is the protagonist of the WV and Diary of an 8-bit Warrior series. He pursues his dreams of becoming a warrior as he gradually trains and gains experience. After graduating, he becomes captain of a team of his best friends and is now headed to Aetheria City to attend the Greater Aetherian Academy somehow managing to become part of the Lost Legion along the way. He and Breeze are an "item" (couple). He owns a pet baby slime named Jello, and a pet kitten named Fluffles. He discovered the Rocket Potion.
Runt is a typical shaven, large-nosed male villager. He later goes shopping with one of his friends, Emerald, and they purchase ninja suits for him and his friend Stump, which they each dye their suits blue and red, respectively. In WV14, he is seen digging through a donation hole with Breeze, trying to find any armor. He eventually picks a suit of iron armor with negative enchantments. In WV16, Brio crafted him a full set of Gemwrought Mail, along with giving him an OP Batwing Cloak and Kolbert's red scarf.
Runt has a friendly, cocky, and headstrong personality. He likes challenges but is sometimes a bit nervous when he encounters them. He cares about his friends very much and is loyal and friendly. After becoming 1 of 4 captains, Runt becomes more serious but still retains his cocky personality. He dislikes the cat Eeebs, mostly since Eeebs reminds him of all the mob attacks. However, they are supposed to eventually get along, as Eeebs is supposed to serve Runt; they were meant to end the war together.
Runt is seen as a highly innovative individual with extremely strong potential as an adventurer, and possibly a Knight of Aetheria. He caught the capital's eye when one of its scouts told the story of a thirteen-year-old boy defeating a servant of Herobrine in a duel in Owl's Reach, then embarking on a dungeon quest and returning alive.
