Grizbal is a hunter from the steppes of Caladria. He never really paid attention to the happenings in the world. He just rode around on his lowly sumpter horse he had raised since childhood, practicing his skill with a bow and arrow and hunting for fur and food to provide for his family. They never noticed nor cared for the politics of the Swadians and Vaegirs and the various other groups roaming the area.

Then tragedy struck Grizbal. His family had come under attack by Khergit raiders while he was out hunting, and they kidnapped his sister and mother. They returned later, demanding a ransom for their return. Grizbal had no idea how he could get the money to save his family. But then, he met up with a caravan of traders from Zendar. They told him of the war that broke out, and how mercenaries were flooding the area for work. He decided, he'd go do some work for them to get the money. He left with the caravan to Zendar, where he began his adventures.

He started out doing oddjobs for the residents there. Hunting pirates, escorting caravans, etc. But, he soon amassed the wealth needed to save his family, and got them back from the Khergits, who were surprised he actually managed to do so. But, instead of returning to his previous life, he had been swept up by the politics and potential for wealth of the war, and decided he would be a roving mercenary for a living, and become wealthy and give his family a better life.

By this time, he was riding a spirited courser, and fighting with a long bow with a large pack of bodkin arrows, and a balanced falchion. He rides down enemies, trapping them in a circle, while his entourage of Swadian skirmishers and Vaegir Veterans and wipe them out. He has met up with two new friends, Borcha, and Marnid. He stills wears just a simple Gherkin.

That doesn't work either.

It just makes clickable, but doesn't show the image on the forum.

The idea behind John was to learn how the play the game and then make a new character with a more unique concept.  What really happened was that I got so hooked my first time out that I'm still playing the guy.  He's a leader, primarily, that can also mix it up when he needs to.  Not flexible enough to really excel in tournaments he more than makes up for it in leadership and tactical skill on the battlefield.

Currently he's thrown in with the Vaegirs and commands a rather long lived contingent of knights that varies between 12-20 or so.  Lately he's been involved in some unconventional recruiting and experimenting with troop types including Dark Hunters, Dark Knights and Shield Sisters.  Most of his income is looted from Swabian caravans or taken off the corpses of bandits and raiders elsewhere.  While he doesn't mind a tough fight keeping his forces intact has become a priority and it's rare he'll deliberately face down a potent enemy force.  Vaegir merchants owe him quite a few favors for deeds he's done for them on his climb to the top but now he's more focused on his military duties with the nobility.

What the future holds remains to be seen but many have overheard the mercenary commander suggest a force comprised entirely of Dark Knights would, under his command, be nigh unbeatable.  But putting together such a contingent would be the work of a lifetime...
