Elijah Grayfrost: a man of 35, is the second eldest of his father’s three children, his brother Ulric Grayfrost being eldest and Deliah Grayfrost the youngest. Despite being the second youngest of his father’s line, Elijah proved himself more worthy to be the owner and wielder of the family sword, Terror. He earned the rights to it when brigands had tried to sack the family keep, Havenfell. It was during the brigand raid Elijah had made his first kill before Ulric had. He was only 14 at the time, and his father saw this first kill as a sign that Elijah be the one who will be the wielder of Terror once he became of age, although Ulric would still be the next in line for the keep and the land owned by the Grayfrosts. On his becoming of age name day his father gave him the family blade and had him leave his custody to be fostered at the following houses for two years each; The Starks to learn discipline and loyalty, The Tullys to learn strategy and siege works, The Lannisters to learn trade and wealth, The Arryns to learn defensive tactics and history of Westeros. During the time he spent learning Elijah took up every free moment he had to learn the use of the sword from the best men-at-arms that dwelt at each house. After the 8 years had passed, Elijah (being 24 at this time) returned home to the familiar lands he grew up on. Although happy to be back in his home lands Elijah felt his place wasn’t there and that he belonged else where and planned to travel till he found his place. For a year he traveled until he met a woman by the name of Mya Delfore. Several months after the two had met they wedded. During the marriage Elijah had put down Terror to become a husband and hopefully later on a father. For two years they lived happily together until one night a band of sell swords had raided their home after raping and killing his wife while they made Elijah watch. After being beaten to near death and watching the torture of his wife, Elijah took back up on Terror and vowed as long as he lives he will kill any sell sword who had killed any innocent family or committed any other wrongful act. For 8 years Elijah had kept to his vow, he killed sell swords from every part of Westeros. His venturing eventually lead him to King’s Landing and there he met Garwen Lannister. The sparring match (that was suggested by Elijah) had made it clear that they would get along well with the other. And it will be in King’s Landing where Elijah might finally settle.
