Sturm Brightblade, honorable Knight of Solamnia
Name: Sturm Brightblade
Race: Human Knight
Born: Castle Brightblade, in the land of Solamnia
Life: Sturm was born in the land of Solamnia, and his father Angus Brightblade had been a Knight of the Rose, one of the greatest. Sturm would have followed in his footsteps, except for the fact that the Knights were held in disapproval by the populace when he was a child, so his mother and he had no choice but to flee his ancestral home and seek refuge in Solace. He met Flint and Tanis while living there, and made friends with Caramon and Raistlin, but he never forgot his father, and always acted like a Knight of Solamnia, proud, stern, and honorable, a true gentleman. He was actually a true Knight, although he had never been officially knighted before, that was, he always sought to uphold the Knights' code, the Oath and the Measure, which maintained that a Knight's honor was his life. As a Hero of the Lance, Sturm travelled eventually to Solamnia and the High Clerist Tower, where he faced a panel of Knights, and after a long time, finally became a Knight of Solamnia. However, a while after, Sturm was killed defending the High Clerist Tower from the Blue Dragonarmy's attack during the War of the Lance, killed by a Dragon Highlord, Kitiara Uth-Matar, a woman he had once called friend. His life was rather tragic, as he had spent his whole life in misery, trying to regain his lost heritage, only to be killed a while after he had regained it. However, after that unfortunate episode, Sturm was buried beneath the Tower, in a glass tomb, and regarded as a true Knight and Hero, the greatest the world and ever seen since Huma Dragonbane.
