The beginningGrakhar is a war orphan.
A solitary blademaster, Musashi, found him crying in a crib in a destroyed orc camp in the aftermath of the II war. Then the old and tired blademaster decides to take the child and take care of him. During the years Grakhar grown tall and stronger, following Musashi in his travelling around the world as a wanderer soldier of the Horde, assisting him, cleaning and polish Musashi weapons and taking care of the wolves.
The blademaster path
the childhood wasn't easy for Grakhar, without parents and under the sever eyes of Musashi. He was a rebel, full of angry and despite. To change that dangerous personality, the old blademaster choose to train him in the path of Blademaster, isteas of abandon him to the wild. Under Musashi's training, Grakhar learned as first thing to control his rage, sitting in meditation and silence for hours, only listening the beat of his heart. He also learned how to use weapons, in particular long and thin katana. While the ages past, Grakhar learned more and more about the path and how to progress in it, coming to forge his first own blade "Cleaver", thanks to the continues works in mines and the forge when his master went alone for some quests that were too risky for Grakhar. During these years the young warrior learned the history of Grom Hellscream and how his sacrifice saves the life of Thrall; and heared the story on the great mighty of the Horde hero, and begin to take him like an exemplum to reach telling that to his former teacherwho instead sentenced him and criticize him: Grom, the war hero, had drunk the blood of demons again and ordered his warriors again,as in the past. Elder Blademaster, who had personally experienced the effects and the damnation of demonic blood could not accept it and he dreaded themoment when the son of Hellscream would come in effect horde.
The future warchief and the seeds of dissent
Grakhar, who stimated and see Grom Hellscream as a great hero, was immediately struck by his son, Garrosh. Proud, fierce and the epitome of the warrior. He talken with his former master, believing that the master had the same impression. But he was wrong. Musashi criticize and senteced him: Grom, the great war hero of the Horde, drank the demon blood in ashenvale, damn his army to be enslaved by a demonic rage again. While he redeemed himself fighting and diyng against Mannoroth, the elder Blademaster can't forgive him. Musashi, who had personally tasted the damnation of the demon blood, and his action throught it taunt his dreams to odiern days, dreaded the moment when the son of Hellscream will enter in the Horde. Instead the Master spoke in favor of Thrall, which helped the entire orc race to ripristine the shamanistic creed and he doesn't wave wars recklessy, but instead prefer a more diplomatic way of doing, even in confront of the humans and the alliance. Grakhar, who never forgive the alliance to leave him orphan, heavily disagree but after a short argue, the rest of the conversation died in the embers of the campfire.
The return to Azeroth and the Northrend campaign.After the events in Sunwell, the two returns to Azeroth and they where at Ogrimmar when the scourge strike the city. They immediately goes in Northrend following the Horde's army. In this time Grakhar took other important steps in the path of Blademaster, forging is second katana "The Law" and after years of training, receive the permission of his master to begin the creation of his "True blade", the one and only blade that a Blademater can carry, and extension of his arm and his soul.
He travel a lot around northrend, from borean tundra to Zul'drak, from Howling fjord to Storm peaks. He saw with his eyes the treachery of the forsaken at the wrathgate and mistrust them for the rest of his life. During this period, discussions between the pupil, Grakhar, who sees Garrosh like an exemplum to aspire and the future of the Horde and the master, Musashi, wich despise Hellscream calling him a warmonger dull, too much like his father, even without the demon blood, happen more frequently.
Something had broken in their relationship...
The argent tournament and the split.
And then, the argent tournament was instructed. Warriors from all the wolrds came to the frozen lands of Icecrown to duel and increase their mastery in preparation of the battle against the lich king. Grakhar take care on the weapons and mounts of his master, like always. But in his free time from the duty, he duel against warrior of alliance and horde alike, winning and losing, but always learning something. When Musashi said to Grakhar that he was ready to walks more deeply in the path; at the assicuration from Grakhar to fight always in this path "For the mighty Hellscreams Horde" the discussion start and turn more and more ferocius. Words never used by the two hit the air and when the discussion had runned to deeply and ferocius, the two stop talk and walk in the field of trials, weapons at hand. No words were spoken.
The ex-pupil and his former master glance for a long time before the duel starts. They fight long, but, as was expected, Musashi, more experienced and fierce, slash grakhar's chest and before leave him, in a muddle of his blood says" If you really believe that this stupid warmonger will be the future of YOUR horde and a better warrior to amire, fine. From now on you are alone with your beliefs. I have nothing more to teach to a young bloody-headed dumb like you".
and then walks away from the tournament exit from Grakhar's life.
Grakhar was at argent infirmary when the lich king died.
Now Grakhar "Swiftblade" as his Teacher nomine him, wander to Azeroth, increasing his skill in fight and smithing and perhaps learn the true calm of the warrior to face his father, once again, and beat him.
Fully and truly convinced in his beliefs he wish to join the Garrosh's Horde army to brought destruction to the Alliance, grant a better future for his people and be a legendary Blademaster.
