In the tongue of his people this Goliath’s name is Brogvar, but in common he goes by Runs on Wind. In the Wastes of Oldavor he was born, in a small seaside village that was pitted against an endless plain of ice for 10 months a year. Fatefully he left his home, as a gargantuan creature wreaked havoc upon his village. Runs on Wind was able to slay the beast, but dozens were dead, including his family which were devoured in their yurt by a single gulp from the creature. Though the village declared him a hero, he felt a failure. So he exiled himself from the wastes to the warm lands beyond the white wall.
Many years did he venture, finding his first gold as a bounty hunter within The Mandril Vilor of Baldur, though quickly did the pursuit of evil men and their deeds tire him. Thus he left to work as a hunter in the World Explorer’s & Hunter’s League (WEHL), for he thought his trappings of monster’s in Oldavor would be a skill worthwhile within this company. Too an extent he was correct, and he rose swiftly through the ranks to Master of Hunt, but each hunt refreshed his failure to his family. So at his peak he thus retired with an opulent sum of gold, to the city of Huvuden in Formen.
When the Liturium War began, Huvuden was the first Formeni city to burn as it sat right at the border of Leacianus. The tanning and hunting shop he had spent years of his energy and soul into was burnt afore his eyes by Leacianan Fire Launchers. Thus in a fit of absolute rage the Goliath negated his safety, running through the fire and flames to the siege weapons, completely dismantling one with his bare hands right after he had dismantled the bones and limbs of its operators. He then fled south to Belfrie, which already had amassed an army for a counter attack in lieu of their Formeni allies. Brogvar tried to enlist, though the Belfrian’s would not accept a foreigner into their military ranks. At the war’s beginning no mercenary companies fought on the side of men, as the Leacianan Elves held coin far beyond what either of the two meagre human kingdoms could hold.
It was not until Belfrie and Formen began offering Liturium from their vaults as form of payment that mercenaries began defecting, including the Golden Griffins who sent word to their officers mid-deployment, causing chaos in the Leacianan ranks as mercenary companies began cutting their men down within their back line. At this news Runs on Wind was the first to put his name down on the enlistment form to join The Golden Griffins the next day, and was cutting down high elves in a solemn rage less than a month later. Upon the latest heavy losses in Talon Company, Brogvar was reassigned to bolster the vanguard forces, with confidence that he would have no qualms in being the first into the fray.
