"Day and night I've honed my skills. Now comes the time to test them!"
Hailing from the northern reaches of Abalathia, Hoary Boulder is considered of formidable build, even amongst other Hellsguard. When he was eighteen, he descended from his mountain home hoping to prove his mettle, and earned countless accolades as an adventurer for taking on deadly marks most others would avoid.
It was on one such quest in the outskirts of Gridania that Hoary met Coultenet. Though different in personality and origin, the two bonded as if they were brothers, and have worked side by side since. Eventually, the pair would earn a name for themselves, earning them the attention of one Tataru Taru.
Now twenty and five, Hoary Boulder guards the Rising Stones, and has taken it upon himself to teach the Doman younglings which call the halls home the way of the sword, hoping that one day people will look up to him as they do the Warrior of Light.
