|Title(s)||Captain of the Stormwind Guard|
Also know as "Testifist", "Fisticle", "Grumpyfluff", and "Sillybum".
NameGladrien Paidren Spartian
- Former Captain of the Stormwind Guard
- On occasion, his brutality and his personality have earned him nicknames from his Guards. Few call him the Bloody Lion of Stormwind, more call him the Gargoyle or Old Stoney.
Gladrien's face and body is ravaged by massive scarrings from past events. Underneath his scars is a very normal, plain face. He was never an attractive human, but his scars have made him look entirely horrific. Gladrien's neck and face are now even worse than before, with large scars shaped like large worgen bites covering him from head to toe, which are more vivid and ragged than his others. Gladrien's hair is quite long, having it uncut during his time as a gladiator, he decided to keep it that way, and still it hangs loosely around his face, unkempt and most times unwashed. He is a well built human, with a soldier's stance. Gladrien also has two identical burn scars on both temples. Gladrien recently lost his right eye. As a result of an axe, another horrific scar is added to his collection. It goes vertically down his face, from his forehead to his chin, leaving an ugly empty eye socket.

Current family status
Wife - Iyana Spartian
- Married several months now, but plan to have a proper ceremony. Iya is currently with child. Well, children. Within her womb grow triplets, whose wellbeing plagues Gladrien.
Gladrien comes from a a family of well off farmers, once of the lands of Lordaeron. They were never poor, nor wealthy, managing a decent living from their land. Following the orcish Horde's attack his family was wiped out. Leaving him believing he was the only survivor. He recently made contact with his uncle, and nephew, son of his dead sister.
It is speculated among the last of the Spartian line that they were once a noble house of Lordaeron, and lords of a considerably wealthy holdfast. The only evidence they have of this, is a journal dating back one hundred years, written by a Daidrien Spartian, to a time of peace, before the Horde came, and the cursed plague. It lists trade dealings and coffer sums in it, both of large gold sums. It also mentions the man's visit to the king at the time.
Work in Progress.
No official findings. Unofficially, he has committed several crimes in his youth.
Personal NotesGladrien is often perceived as a cold, heartless officer, with little tolerance for anything other that excellence He highly temperamental, and can instantly turn from calm, to beating a recruit for doing something incorrectly, or acting disrespectfully. He is not one for words, or personal feelings, but when he does, he is usually insightful, his own history granting him a wealth of wisdom.
Gladrien suffered a terrible injury to the groin, five years ago, which resulting led to him being unable to sire any children. He was saved the embarrassment and ridicule of being a eunuch. Gladrien does retain the ability to take part in the act of coitus, but he is disgustingly scarred. Recently Gladrien has looked into the matter, as he heads into a second marriage, and the healers say he may not be as sterile as he thought.
