Bio:

Ajax was discovered as an infant by a nomadic tribe in the Giant Shield Mountains after his clansmen had been slaughtered by gnolls. This tribe, known by many as the Stormriders, took Ajax in and taught him the way of the mountain. From an early age, Ajax showed a propensity for the martial arts of the Storm Riders. At the age of 10, a bear trying to defend her territory attacked the women and children while the men were off hunting. Ajax stood toe to toe with the beast and, just as he was about to be slain, a heavenly glow surrounded Ajax and thunder and lightning burst from his hands, rendering Ajax unconscious and blasting the bear over the side of the cliff. Ajax remained unconscious for only a few days, but during this time he was visited by angels of Kord, the patron deity of the Stormriders and angels of Moradin, the patron deity of the dwarves. These angels told Ajax that he was blessed by the gods and that he was destined for great things. They told him of a great war that would one day determine the fate of the gods themselves. When Ajax awoke, he found blue tattoos covering his body and felt vigor and energy like never before. Kord had blessed him with the Power of the Storm while Moradin had blessed him with the Resilience of the Mountains. When Ajax was 19, he had learned everything the Stormriders could teach him, and so, he left to join the Medjay and become a protector of the people and of the Gods.
