As a teenager, Gehngus was often ridiculed and beaten as a result of his stoutness, both in appearance and beliefs. Gehngus refused to subscribe to the manifold manipulations and propaganda in which the simpleminded place their faith. For this he was ostracized. Necessity adapted him into a street fighter, ever vigilant for an unexpected assault. Realizing that he had become a cynical pariah, rejected by family and neighbors alike, Gehngus abandoned his former life and trekked high into MT. STARR of the CHESTERPEAK MOUNTAINS, named in honor of the hermetic mystic who has dwelt at its summit for generations. Legends hold that CHESTER STARR observes and meditates from his lofty sanctuary, patiently reflecting and writing his contemplation into great tomes of sagely wisdom.
Following weeks of harsh climbing and rugged acclimatization, Gehngus discovered a dwelling cut into the summit of MT. STARR. The mystical historian CHESTER STARR appeared, and silently motioned an invitation to Gehngus.
Gehngus spent years reviewing the historical text written by CHESTER STARR. It gave him great satisfaction to validate many of his unpopular beliefs which were corroborated by the tomes. CHESTER STARR also introduced Gehngus Kahrnage to a secret death attack technique, the CHESTER STARR DEATH STRIKE. If properly executed, according to CHESTER STARR, the CHESTER STARR DEATH STRIKE can fell even the mightiest of foes in but an instant. Gehngus Kahrnage remains but a novice in this technique.
In the hopes of one day returning to his former home as either an educator or a missionary, depending on its people’s receptiveness to his teachings, Gehngus Kahrnage has decided that he must first travel the land perfecting the CHESTER STARR DEATH STRIKE. He becomes a bounty hunter, expecting opportunities to accumulate the martial prowess and coinage which will be necessary to spread the teachings and meditations of CHESTER STARR throughout the lands.
His current bounty is for one Grom Nutsmear, a half-orc, valued at 250 gold pieces.
