From when he was a pup, he had amazing martial know-how and command. As he fought in many battles, he gained respect amongst his fellow legionaries. One day, his warlord was dealt a mortal blow by an elf. Unable to accept this fate, Arbaal took it upon himself to swear vengeance against this lesser being.

When news of Durvan’kon’s death reached the masses, a ceremony was held amongst his captains and lieutenants. The Boneyard was colored red from the endless bouts, but finally, Arbaal rose up, claiming the title of Warlord. Through use of his title, he learned the name of this petty demihuman who won victory over the previous warlord, as well as the name of their immediate family. Striking a deal with a Bugbear, Goriath, he ordered the elf’s wife and children captured and in return, Goriath received any treasure he could find in their residence. Agreeing to these terms, the bugbear set out to get his treasure and fulfill his promise.

After tossing the severely beaten wife and kids of the elf before the warlord, Goriath reported that apparently the elf was named Gildrion Fineblade, and is the leader of the Silversprig guard. Sweating with anticipation for his next kill, Arbaal’kon rose from his iron seat and stepped on the bound and beaten wife’s foot. “Seems like we will need to begin preparations…” Goriath nodded to the tune of the protesting wife. “The elder child, bring it here.” Goriath grunted in reluctance, but the stare of Arbaal’s piercing eyes told him that was not an option. The elder child, a previously fair-skinned elven maiden was grabbed by her blood-soaked hair and tossed like a half-empty sac of flour at his feet. “Now, what is your name?” He asked in a mocking tone.

The maiden replied with a spat of blood, “Terythlia Fineblade, remember it, pig!” He clapped his hands together in mock applause. “I’m not the one who will remember it… Your father will!”
Goriath knew his cue. He held the squirming girl by the hair. The mother and brother watched in horror as a rusty knife was drawn across her ear. “Now, you will make an excellent banner for this battle!”
