Grolin was born within a small dwarven enclave. His family was a proud family of warriors and artisans. He was never strong like his brothers or sisters, but instead he was hearty and had a keen wit, and some ability to lead others.
When he was young, Grolin began exhibiting strange abilities that many of those that dwelt so deep had never seen. His parents, while caring had no idea what do with a person who apparently had some ability to manipulate himself and others with his force of will. After his parents searched far and wide, they found a group that had a number of members who displayed similar characteristics.
At the age of 13, with some martial training under his belt, he was sent forth to train with others who had mastered their own psionic abilities. For the next several years, he was tested and challenged to see the extents of his abilities. Unlike many of those that had come before him, his will was able to effect himself and bolster his abilities, and occasionally effect those that surrounded him.
At the age of 22, he received heartbreaking news, his home was destroyed by a savage ork attack. The fighting had been fierce, but during the course of the battle, his father and two of his brothers had been slain. He returned to his home, and for some 15 years served as a sentry and a guard to his home. He grew restless and bored with his life at home.
Following a patrol, he received word from his former trainer that he was being requested to return to the school to assist with the tutelage of another who had shown similar abilities. As he approached the school, he saw that the school had been destroyed during his journey. However, upon approaching the ruins, he was beset upon by orks. He was able to protect himself for a short time, until out of seemingly nowhere an advance scout group from the 4th Legion happened upon the cornered dwarf and dispatched the goblins. In exchange for saving his life, Grolin chose to serve with the 4th legion.
