Born in Quain Glorf, was accepted into the Dragon temple at an early age. Hardships in the area slowly caused the temple to be unable to meet the costs of supporting all of their trainees, Glorf volunteered to leave the Temple after and join a trading caravan that was on it's way back to the shipping docks as a guard, the temple had one less trainee to support and Glorf's wages were paid in advanced to the temple. While the plan was for Glorf to return to resume his training he knew the wages as a caravan guard would not last long and soon he or other monks would be right back to pawning themselves for table scraps. So Glorf sent word back to the Temple that he would not return until he could adequately fund the temple's work.
Glorf managed to join up with a cargo ship that was in need of help moving supplies during voyage and keeping the rowdy crew inline without having to resort to weaponry. And so for a time Glorf practiced his skills, trained his body and even picked up some basic tradesmanship. Glorf earned a decent fair aboard the ship, but even still he knew there were better opportunies with riskier assignments. So with the good reference of his captain when they docked near Absalom, Glorf made his way and joined up with The Exchange.
