Lord Wallace Ironmarsh served the majority of his life in the Ulekian army. He was a captain who went on many daring missions into the Lortmil Mountains against the goblinoid threats there. He also worked for a time as a pirate hunter near the port of Gryrax. For all his dedicated years of service, he was made a noble upon his retirement.
When Lord Ironmarsh retired, he was told by the Stonelord himself that he could relocate anywhere that he wanted. Ironmarsh chose Oaken Hill, as he wanted to help bring civilization to the Pomarj and make that his lasting legacy. As of yet, he is unsure what project he will undertake in the area, but he has decades of experience to help inform his decision.
