Malstrom is very deeply in tune with nature and the elements. From a very young age, they have been speaking to him regularly. He accepts the neutrality of nature, that it kills without malice or mercy, but that it also nurtures and brings forth the bounty of the world. Malstrom is much like this, seeing good and bad as simply sides to the same coin, both sides needing to be accepted and understood. Complaining does not help. Find peace with yourself, and accept those around you for who they are, and things will work out, just as they do in nature.

History Before The Grim: Son of a troll hunter and provider for his island village. One night, when Malstrom was only 6 years old, his father returned with a young orc child who had been orphaned in the war. Even at that age, Malstrom knew he and this orc had a special bond, and treated him as his brother. When Bloodscream left the island to go to Orgrimmar to be trained with the other orcs, Malstrom was already an acknowledged shaman, and soon followed his brother to the big city. When Bloodscream joined the Grim, Malstrom soon did as well. This has brought him much renown on his home island, where the legend of the Grim had spread years before.
History in the Grim: Devotion to his guildmates, and confidence in his abilities has made him a great healer for the Grim. “While I stand, no Grim will fall”. Normally he will be seen with Bloodscream, but with the orc’s recent absence, Malstrom is still in the thick of it with his guildmates whenever he can. He is devoted to the Mandate, but not out of hatred for the alliance, but more for the belief that they are a herd and must be culled and, ideally, eaten. He is very proud of his guild and their accomplishments, and enjoys the notoriety that being a member of the Grim brings him, particularly with the ladies of his island.
Quirks/Misc: Did I mention he likes eating? Particularly alliance. He is quiet, and laughs far more often than he speaks.
