Stormforge of Qohor Age:
Long ago, a man by the name of Davos Seaworth took a risk and saved the life of Gendry Storm. Gendry Storm was one of the bastards of the murdered King Robert Baratheon. After the man's death, the race for power and decrees by a house that had no right to the throne, placed Gendry at risk. It was Davos who sent the boy away, wishing him well and making him promise never to return to Westeros.
Gendry, barely learning about his lineage managed to make it to Essos and sell his services as a smith in Bravos. In time he made his way to Qohor to study under the same guild of craftsman his former master had. Gendry changed his name to Stormforge, honoring both his birth land and his new home. Over the years he established himself as a master smith, married and had plenty of sons who all became smiths or merchants themselves. House Stormforge was not like the houses of the west, they had no banners to their call but they grew in fame for a unique secret known as Stormsteel as well as being able to reforge Valyrian Steel. While they had no knights, few of his sons became sell swords or mercenaries but the majority became smiths and merchants. One was not born a Stormforge without learning to wield a hammer or a sword.
Macgowan is the youngest of the third generation, with a 4th already well underway, the Stormforges became a influential and wealthy family of Qohor. Born with an insatiable thirst for life, he joined one of the free companies as soon as he could, serving as both a smith and a sell sword alike. In his travels he has seen most of the known world except for Westeros up close. Once he took his fill of the politics of the free cities he looked towards the Dothraki Sea.
He traded his services to a Khalasar in order to ride with them into battle where he learned to hone his skill on a horse. In his service to his Khal he learned the language, took part in many victories and was close to settling into the life of a nomad. But as all things in life, he decided to move on (with the blessing of the Khal) and left for his next adventure.
The ocean nearly killed him, after spending most of his life on land he struggled to gain his "sea legs" but found the calling of the sea intoxicating. He never became a good sailor but a smith was always in need in one shape or another. It was during this time he sought to learn the secrets of Valyrian Steel. While reforging it was not an issue for the smiths of Qohor, he dreamed of being able to relearn those lost secrets. He attempted to journey to Valyria and almost died, with his quest failed he returned home in time to care for his grandfather in his last day. Gendry Stormforge, master smith, beloved father, grandfather+ spoke of Westeros. Of friends he left behind of a man who saved his life. After the man passed, he turned to his father and made him a promise. One last adventure, a trip to Westeros to thank House Seaworth for saving his grandfather and he would return to Qohor and settle down, a promise he intended to keep Family Connections:
Huge family back in Qohor (Background)
Barratheon family of Stormlands
Shireen Baratheon - Great Aunt Appearance:
Macgowan tends to dress in Essos fashion, when not adopting the current fashion of the situation he finds himself in, dull colored tunics and slacks. Most fashion tends to be light and airy, easy to remove for the warm and humid climates of the land he calls home. While working in the forge, it is practical to protect the body as needed. A lifetime of working on the forge has given him a minor resistance fire and high temperatures.
His arms and shoulders are well developed from a lifetime of swinging a hammer and working with heavy tools to craft weapons. His skin is lightly marred with small burns, all proof of mistakes he made as an apprentice smith long ago.
His hair is kept short and out of the way. Personality:
Some children are content to learn about the world from books or stories, Macgowan wanted to witness it first hand. From the time he could walk he was curious and downright reckless. He scared his mother and siblings by climbing, hiding and exploring all parts of their home the moment he could walk. Once he was able to escape the house he learned the city of Qohor and over time more of the surrounding lands. His parents thought they could channel his energy into crafting but it only held his attention for burst of time.
As he grew older his thirsts for life increased, exploration, adventure, occasional nights drinking and womanizing were as entertaining as boarding a merchant vessel simply to visit a new city and get lost for days before returning. Macgown wants to see the world and nothing will stop him. Aspirations and Goals
