Luis Ironfoot was born in Treharne and grew up as part of the clansguard caste. From an early age, it was clear to his friends that although Luis was a good fighter his best weapon was his mind. After the massacre of his village, Luis joined Govannon’s Nirasian warband and quickly grew in status as a skilled warrior and an excellent strategist. Even after losing his lower leg during the fight with Banan, Luis continued to impress Rodric, the soon-to-be king of Northern Tarania. Along with Rodric and Tarek, Luis would lead the combined might of the Northern clans south and defeat the Mendari. Many consider Luis Ironfoot to be one of the greatest generals of all time.
