Gamferth, son of Gamhelm
His farm in the homesteads near Edoras
Gamferth was born in Snowbourn to a family of farmers. As the only child, his duty from a very early age was to help his father and mother tending the crops and to occasionally give a helping hand to his blacksmith uncle. The very physical everyday toil made him grow into a tall and muscular fellow, much like most of his countrymen.
Gamferth's early life and adolescence were mostly nothing unlike those of his peers. He was working the fields and smithy, learning to ride and tend to the horses, practicing swordplay. But there was however one thing that made him stand out in a way and that was his curiosity about the written word. After a certain scribe taught him to read as a young lad, he would devour all the dusty books and tomes he could get his hands on, learning of distant lands and peoples in the far away Eriador and of wars long since waged.
Alas, his dreams of travelling to and from the various distant lands weren't to be realized until much later in his years. After gaining some fame leading his own band of Riders, Gamferth gave away his position as Captain and was given leave to pursue his dream of wandering the world.
After spending a year away from Rohan and living at his farm with his mother until her passing of old age, Gamferth sought a new beginning for himself near Edoras.
All of his relatives have passed away.
Anything and anyone that threatens Rohan.
Rohan, honesty, ale, fighting Orcs.
Dishonesty, anything that threatens Rohan, getting older.
Protecting Rohan, peace for Middle-earth and its Peoples.
