Alex’s grandfather is a full blooded Frost Giant, albeit a small one. And that fact has always been apparent, but Alex grew up in the mountains and lived amongst less civilized folk who value might far more than whatever a person’s history might be. He was always been bigger and stronger than the other kids and often made it a point to make sure they didn’t forget it. But he was just as much in a hurry to make sure the troll next door knew it too when it decided to turn the village into a buffet. When the other villagers ran Alexander stood his ground. He was doing well until the troll wouldn’t stay down. A traveling sorceress, Colleen, happened to be passing by and helped him finish the beast off. In exchange for a modest sum of gold pieces Colleen agreed to let Alex take full credit for the troll slaying and was on her way before the other villagers returned.

He found a map to a treasure trove amongst the troll’s belongings and followed it, he found no treasure but he did find a black dragon which led to his meeting with Stormfall. As a fellow outcast of sorts he felt a kinship with Stormfall and would go with him when he departed from the Dwarves. Rush ran into Colleen again while Stormfall was receiving his training and the two of them, along with a ranger called Maverick Wingover, engaged in mercenary work together until Stormfall’s training was complete. At which time Wingover and Colleen left to travel the planes and Alex, Derrick, and Derrick’s apprentice Fitch left to do Iomedae’s will. After the events w/Master Zyfram Rush traveled to find his grandfather in the frozen mountains w/ help from Wingover.
