Appearance

Sturm Brightblade is a very stern looking man. At only 29 years old, his constant serious demeanor easily makes him look at least five years older than that. Sturm has long brown hair, and brown eyes, and in the style of the Solamnic Knights, he has a long flowing moustache. Sturm also wears the armor of a Knight of Solamnia. It's a very ancient design. It belonged to Sturm's father and bears the symbol of his order, the Knights of the Rose.

Personality

Est Sularus oth Mithas, My Honor is My Life. These words describe Sturm's outlook on everything. Sturm believes that sometimes, honor is all we have. When everything else fails, the law, order, justice, even the Measure, Honor is all that is left. Sturm greatest fear is that he will somehow dishonor himself and in doing so, shame his father's name. Sturm also harbors a secret from his friends.

History

Sturm was born in 322 AC in Solamnia in his family's ancestral home, Vingaard Keep. His father, Angriff Brightblade, was a Knight of Solamnia and the High Justice of the Order of the Rose. However, the time after the Cataclysm was a dark one for the Knighthood, and disaster was just around the corner.

When Sturm was still very young, there was a peasant uprising. When Angriff knew that it was hopeless, he sent his wife and child away in exile to protect them. Soon after this incident, Angriff was betrayed by one of his own men, and murdered. Sturm and his mother moved to Solace to seek refuge, where he met Caramon and his brother Raistlin. Sturm and Caramon became fast and in time met the rest of the Companions.

When Sturm's mother passed away, he decided it was time to travel north and discover the fate of his father. He also had the intention of joining the knighthood. However, when Sturm reached Solamnia, there was no trace of his father, and no one knew what had happened to him (or they weren't speaking of it, anyway). Sturm never returned to Solace with his father's sword and armor, but he never did complete his induction into the knighthood due to conflicts with a warring family, the Crowngaurds.
