Gunther was born in the Village of Drafn, as he was growing to adulthood many of the Varangian Guard feared Gunther would not make a great warrior. He was small in stature and his strength was not great. When he was of the Age to take to the field of war he surprised his fellows with his ferocity and prowess. He made his way into the Drafn Shield Wall and into the Raven's Guard as well. Fate brought him before Gonzalo Otsoa and the both fell into a drunken stupor, Gonzalo bet that Gunther could not find a feast hall than would take the two so late in the night, if Gunther failed to find a Hall he would fight for the Hospitallers for one day.
Needless to say Gunther was found the next morning wearing a Cappa of the Confrater and carrying the shield of the Hospitallers. He fought bravely for the Order as he did in Drafn.
As the weeks went by Gunther became great friends with the Fighting Brethren and at Potrero Pass he made the commitment of the Secular Brother, leaving his village to protect the Pilgrims of Caid.
During the Reign of Drog and Ilthuna, Gunther was made Sergeant of the watch of the Shield wall of the Order. He held that position with great pride and trained the fellow shieldmen.
During the reign of Edric and Faizeh Gunther moved to Border of Adenveldt and holds a vigilant guard there.
