Hoard of the Dragon Queen
Forest Gnome Ranger, Beast Hunter
Gruff nature loving gnome hunter armed to the teeth and ready to take down the largest beasts. He is uncharismatic and rough around the edges. He keeps to himself but is willing to share a good story once in a while.
After a powerful storm damages his home village, Gunther and his young son head into town to gather food and supplies. Soon afterward, a thick fog rolls in and engulfs the town, trapping the Primestones and others in the store. Terror mounts as deadly insect creatures reveal themselves outside, but that may be nothing compared to the threat within. A zealot noble calls for a sacrifice in a panicked frenzy. Gunther’s son was swept into the madness of the terrified crowd. A wall collapsed on the crowd as Gunther witnessed his fellow villagers and son ripped apart by the giant insect horde.
His heart weighing line a stone in pain, he survives the attack and hurries back to his home to save his wife and daughter, only to find his home overrun with the horde. His years of training as a hunter brings about a fast retreat for him and 9 other people of his village. It was a by a waterfall that the 10 would vow to find out who did this to their village and enact revenge.
He has wandered the wilderness ever since, stopping from town to town and finding work as a pest control expert. The promise of the 10 continues to drive his passion for the search of those who must pay for what had been done.
