Brom De Fechten was born in North western Saxony to lowborn parents only 10 years prior to Charlemagne's conquest. When the Franks came, his father and mother demanded he run or face certain death. While fleeing the carnage, he was witness to the destruction of the Irminsul; an image that would stay with him into adulthood.
Brom was picked up by scattered tribal forces consolidating supplies from the dead and would stay with them learning to fight until adulthood. Under Widukind's command, his new tribe would resist the christianization of their people and partake in raids on Frankish lands. Brom goes missing after a Frankish footman throws him from a cliffside.
Upon awakening, Brom could not find his tribesmen, wandering through the land looking for home. After walking for what felt like years, Brom thought he had returned to his home by walking to the west but instead, he had discovered he'd walked too far east! It is there he met Dankwert Bathory of Surtr's brood household, who had informed him that his home wasn't home anymore, for his people had been massacred, Widukind baptized, and the Gods of his people replaced by one. A soldier without other skills, Brom joined Surtr's Brood in search of home away from home. With this small eastern household, Brom would fight for the East, serving in numerous wars against the Midrealm as a part of the Southern Region Army. It is here he seeks renown, hones his skills, and hopes to one day return to reclaim his land from Charlemagne.
