Stürgar was born amongst the Goliath Mountain Clans of the North. When he was in his mid-twenties, a war broke out with the orcs and goblins of the plains arrayed against the dwarves and humans of the foothills. Stürgar served under the dwarf Buroin Rockseeker, Gurden’s cousin. After the war, Buroin gave Stürgar the nickname Redwater when he single-handedly defeated a group of orcs at the Bellwater stream, turning the water red with their blood. Buroin also told Stürgar that if he ever needed work or had the adventuring itch to seek out his cousin, who would definitely have work for a fighter like him. Stürgar took a few more security and caravan guarding jobs before signing on for Gurden’s venture.
