Brandt recently awakened in Deathknell with limited memory of his past. In life, several years ago, he was a street urchin wandering the unknown alleyways of various Lordaeron cities and villages. He could neither recall the details of his life, nor the details of his death. After his awakening, he milled about in Deathknell until he was met by Scrum, an undead warrior who had also just awakened from a long slumber. The two were slow to become allies, but under the pressure of an invasion of zombies, they had no choice but to team up against the immediate threat.
