Montronax Stonefist was born well before The First War in the great city of Ironforge and led a secure life in the mountain fortress. His father was an engineer of some note and held strong ties with the gnomes in Gnomeregan. His mother was a archeologist and miner and traveled around the world a lot.
During his youth Montronax learned the professions from his mother and father and he became a competent miner and above average engineer, were his father had been a gnomish engineer Montronax was facinated by the explosives used by his mother in her archeologist profession and he began to study the art of goblin engineering.
After The Second War Montronax moved with his father to the city of Gnomeregan because his father was working on some very promising engineering devices. During his short stay in Gnomeregan Montronax met a gnome girl named Landa who, despite her innocent apparance, dabbled in demonic magic trying to find the path of the warlock.
Montronax didn't stay in Gnomeregan long and started to explore the mountains of Dun Morogh and the forests of Elwynn Forest, and Stormwind City, during his travels Montronac meets a lot of people including the dwarf paladin Dwaîn, the human warrior Logar, the night elf hunter Mirana, and night elf druid Shivan.
During The Third War both Montronax his parents got killed, his father was in Gnomeregan when the troggs assaulted the city and died trying to save his friends. His mother died in the Badlands when her dig site was overrun by some Dark Iron dwarfs. It was Landa who brought Montronax the news of his father's demise and stricken by grief Montronax traveled back with Landa to Anvilmar in Dun Morogh there he lived for nearly 4 years, inspired by the hunter Mirana that he met during his travels Montronax turns to the ways of the hunter.
