Rise to Glory
Ex-Mercenary, Leader of Adventurer's Company
Heinrich Steiner is a 52 year old from Wurtbad, Stirland. He created and runs the adventuring company. The son of a cobbler, he knew early in life that he need more excitment than a town life would provide and at the age of 15, Heinrich ran away from home and joined the Red Blades, a group of mercenaries led by Dieter Vollgen. Dieter became a father figure for Heinrich and taught him the skills necessary to survive in their profession. He stayed with the Red Blades for 24 years, but after Dieter died in the Battle of the Blood Mire, he left as the Red Blades were torn apart in a power struggle. Heinrich wandered the countryside of Stirland and Reikland searching for work, hunting bounties or clearing out monster infestations in exchange for coin. It was in this time he met Mathias Fullen and Allayana , and the three of them quickly built a reputation. It was 10 years after Heinrich left the Red Blades when they hit their biggest payoff. They discovered an ancient dwarf chest while clearing out a cave of night goblins. It took them half a year before they could find someone capable of opening it, but within was a fortune in Dwarfen treasure. They split the wealth, and went their seperate ways. Heinrich used his money to buy Stoneward Keep and form the adventuring company.
