Stonesmelter found his true calling when he got caught up in the war when the dwarfs broke into the tribes saves, and was mortally wounded, yet instead of dying, survived, and was reborn with a new faith, and a need for vengeance (or conquest). Diving wholeheartedly into his clans war and given the new Nickname by his chief as UndyingStone. After the war, he in the boredom of peace, his mind wandered, and eventually his mind was overtaken by a fuge. After unknown months, he finds himself newly arrived to the unfamiliar lands far from his home mountain. Feeling refreshed and looking for a new quest, he no occasionally dreams of making the long quest to return to his homeland… eventually.
