Eckhorn is a Human teamster and retired soldier from the city of Arindol. For several years, he worked driving wagons for various enterprises between Hanaellan, Arin and the Cardillic Desert. Prior to that, he spent time in the forces of the army of Braith, where he rose to the rank of colonel before retiring to spend time with his wife and three children. His wife passed away two years ago, and his children are grown, so he decided to spend some time traveling. Eventually, he left that job and accompanied a group of travelers led by Zdeneka Prahaska to Promise Junction. There, he was hired as an assistant to head chef Cellani of the Red Dragon Inn while also serving as an adviser to Bramus, head of the village security force.
