Always soft-spoken and polite, Garrem has been noticeably hesitant to share many details about himself or his past. Only the basic facts are known at this time.
Garrem lived for years on the island of Meshor as part of a small Human settlement there. When he reached adulthood, the Elder of the village granted him and others the choice to leave the island and travel the world. Garrem accepted and traded for passage aboard one of the ships belonging to a trade company who frequently came to the island to collect pelts.
First coming to Kermoria by way of Ilithi, Garrem spent some time in the city of Shard before moving North to see more of what the five provinces had to offer. It was in the city of Crossing where he learned more of the Paladins' Guild and eventually joined their membership under Guildleader Verika. His distaste for the social structure of Zoluren and the crassness of its people drove him to move to Therengia and further his studies under Guildleader Cleworth instead.
As he spent more time in Therengia, he grew to appreciate the environment and the people who had so warmly welcomed him. Eventually, he gained citizenship in the area and pledged himself into the Baron's service. Exactly what the Baron will ask of him or what his duties will be in the future is undetermined, however, he continues his studies under Guildleader Cleworth and trains to further advance his position within the guild.
- 421 A.V.
Sir Anjinson Shilanthor, a retired Paladin in good standing with the guild and former Commander of the Elanthian Vanguard, gave Garrem a formal recognition of service and dedication to the teachings of the guild. This recognition was accompanied by a gift from the philanthropist in the form of a masterfully-forged kertig lance.
425 A.V. By the hands of the Weaponsmith Onem, the lance was reforged into pike at the Hollow Eve Festival.

A detailed heraldic image has been rendered onto the face of circular piece of icesteel, depicting a lone hiro bear standing rampant in the center of a snowy landscape. Two lines of inscription encircle the inlaid device.
There appears to be something written on it.

"Sir Garrem Malkerrit" - "Born of Meshor"
- 425 A.V.
Sir Kenamer Maylan, a Paladin in good standing and former Champion to the future Baroness of Therengia Lady Athelisa Ananthor, gifted Garrem with an informal "Passing of the Shield" as the young Paladin lamented on his lack of a larger shield for guarding others. The shield in question was used formerly by Sir Maylan until he acquired better armament himself, leaving a triple-reinforced vardite pavise shield to go to waste unless Garrem agreed to put it to use.

Finding himself to be slightly lacking as a Therengian Paladin, being that he had no horse of his own to accompany him, Garrem traveled to many stables before deciding on his mount. Eventually finding a suitable match for him at the Zoluren Royal Mews, Garrem is now the proud owner of a gelding he has named "Jeoldar" or "Winter" in the common tongue.
The horse is eighteen hands high with a medium dark grey coat and white highlights. It has a light grey mane and tail. It is a gelding and has a wide white stripe running down the center of the face.

Dragaus shifts his weight.

Garrem says, "They have been gracious hosts to me and treated me with kindness."
Garrem smiles at Dragaus.

Dragaus nods to Garrem.
Garrem says, "It is in the service of my home that I have asked to speak with you today, to pledge my sword to the Zozindu Theren."
(Garrem places one hand on the hilt of his blade and prepares to draw it.)
Gyfford stands up.
Garrem says, "If you'll allow me to draw, I would like to officially offer my pledge to you under the eyes of all here."
Gyfford says, "Go on."
Garrem deftly removes the icy-blue blade from his raekhlo.
(Garrem holds out his blade with both hands, the hilt resting in his palm while the tip lies across two fingers on the other hand.)
Garrem says, "This weapon has been handed down through my family for years, it is claimed that the Black Cloud himself bestowed it upon my forefather for services rendered."
Dragaus watches Garrem carefully.
Garrem says, "It is my desire to now have this blade in service to you and your rule. I offer it to you as an oath to be faithful and stalwart in any duty you deem fit to command of me."
Garrem says, "Let my oath be reflected in the protection of my sword, and the loyalty in my heart."
Garrem studies the ground for a moment.
(Garrem extends his arms outwards, offering the blade up to be taken.)
Garrem offers Gyfford an icy-blue blade set with a glacier emerald in its crossguard.
Gyfford accepts Garrem's icy-blue blade.
Gyfford says, "As I told the Lord earlier..."
Gyfford says, "I reward loyalty with honor and disloyalty with death and dishonor."
Garrem says, "I understand this, Your Grace, and am prepared for it."
Gyfford says, "If you have your mind set on this remember those words and rise."
Garrem stands up.
Gyfford offers Garrem an icy-blue blade set with a glacier emerald in its crossguard.
Garrem accepts Gyfford's icy-blue blade.
Garrem says, "I thank you for your time and consideration, Your Grace. I shall endeavor to ever be of worth and value within your service."
Gyfford says, "Very well welcome to my service."
Gyfford sits down on the bejeweled throne.
Dragaus nods to Garrem.
Garrem hangs his icy-blue blade from his raekhlo. It rattles against the bastard sword hanging from his raekhlo, and he adjusts them.
Liurilias smiles at Garrem.
Garrem bows to Gyfford.
Gyfford says, "We might perhaps have tasks for you soon."
Athelisa smiles at Garrem.
Garrem says, "It would be an honor, sire."
Garrem smiles as he steps back to join the crowd once more.

Liurilias says, "Sir Malkerrit, my Lord."
Liurilias motions to Garrem.
(Garrem steps forward to stand in front of Larohald, his head bowed respectfully as he approaches the ebonwood armchair.)

Garrem says, "I am Sir Garrem Malkerrit, a Paladin who has recently sworn his sword in service to the Zozindu Theren."
