Male Dwarf Rifleman
Brother - Haben McGowland
Durner grew up in Kharanos in a small hunter family. Like the rest of his family, he became a Hunter (Except his brother Haben, who was a thief). From time to time, he helped the local guards in investigating crimes. As he became older, he started having health problems due to the extreme cold, so he moved south, to Elwynn. He instantly fell in love with the flora of the zone and dedicated his days to creating a luxious garden around his house. He soon realised that the local authority of Stormwind, the Peoples' Militia, was in need of help, and remembering his days helping the kharanos guards, decided to join. When the Militia was disbanded he went to live in Aerie Peak along with the remains of the Militia, now known as the Wild Rose Society. Finding that the Wild Rose Society had practically died and that a new military group was enforcing the Law in Stormwind, Durner decided to apply to join the State of Stormwind. However, after merely a few days he has decided that he does not aprove of the group's policies and abuse of the prisoners. Eventually he removed himself from their numbers and returned to his gardening. Some time later, Durner was glad to discover that the State Guards had dissolved and had been substituted by the Stormwind Night Watch. Upon discovering that Caliyen, whom he had worked with in the People's Militia, was a high-ranking officer in the Watch, he decided to join it. When the Stormwind Night Watch disbanded, Durner returned to his gardening.
The McGowland are a small, reclusive clan of Kharanos Dwarf Hunters. The first McGowland to break the mold was Haben McGowland, who became a succesful thief nicknamed "Nimblefeet". But even Haben has the McGowland pride and tendency to completely exagerate their own qualities and talents.
It is believed that the McGowland clan may have origins in the Marriage of a Human and Dwarf many generations ago. However, the only proof supporting this theory is the family name and a slightly greater height average.
Wondering wether to plant roses or lilies.
