Current Residence: Stormwind City, Old Town District
Backstory: Jorion has always been a soldier at heart. Born in Stormwind between the rebuilding of Stormwind following the Second War and the Third War and the Scourge's appearance in Lordaeron, he was raised humbly, working as a farmhand for the properties near the city during harvest season and at Elling Trias' cheese shop the rest of the year. When he was 18, he joined the Stormwind infantry during one of its major recruitment campaigns to combat the scourge. However, he saw fairly little of the war itself, instead mostly working patrol duty in Duskwood, fending off necromancers and their abominations as the once-idyllic forest became more and more malaised, eventually succumbing completely to the corruption. By that time, he had seen enough active duty to lead a few of his own men, mostly keeping the peace in Elwynn and combatting the Defias. He, like all the standing armies at the time, was requisitioned to fight when the Scarab Wall came down, and he was present in the force that assaulted the ruins of Ahn'Qiraj, and finally toppled the unspeakable temples to forgotten gods in its inner city.
He wandered Lordaeron for a few years after the war was over, having left the military. When the Dark Portal was reopened, he went through as an adventurer, wandering through Hellfire Peninsula, Shattrath, the Blade's Edge Mountains, and eventually ending up in Netherstorm, where he fought Kael'Thas' forces and led attacks on Tempest Keep.
After the Lich King awoke from his slumber, Jorion, having returned from Outland, re-signed with the military. He could remember how devastating the Scourge was. He was immediately shipped to the Borean Tundra, where he defended Valiance Keep from Horde and undead assaults; eventually, he was sent ahead to the Seventh Legion outpost in eastern Dragonblight with news of traitors. It was here that Jorion earned his name Strongshield, always fighting at the forefront of his men - since he had been promoted to a Captain and given a troop of soldiers to lead - and the attacks he led never broke or scattered. He gained a reputation for success and leadership. After two years fighting from that outpost, he was sent to Fordragon Hold to aid in the breaching of the Wrathgate. However, he was not caught in the plague bombing by the Forsaken for the simple reason that he was not in the main valley, instead fighting Scourge border forces along the ridges to each side. After this, Jorion swore to slay the Lich King and accompanied Tirion Fordring's Argent Crusade to Icecrown. They marched for weeks, living in a state of constant alertness, aware that their relatively small force could be annihilated at any time. However, they did make it to the Frozen Halls, in time to hear that the Lich King was slain. Unsatisfied but unwilling to continue his campaign in the frozen wasteland that is Northrend, Jorion returned to Stormwind, where he now resides, experienced and battle-weary, but never faltering in his resolve to protect.
