Rinehart learned at an early age that no matter how dependable, honest and hard-working he was, life was extremely unfair. Growing up in a family that seemed his complete opposite, he decided after years of their irresponsibility, and the burdens they placed on him, that he needed to get away from it all. After many great struggles, he was finally able to send himself to college and break his ties with those who only brought him down. However, college would prove to hold it’s own challenges, ones that were perhaps worse than any he had previously faced. Coming home from class early one day he stumbled on his roommate attempting to summon a giant demon from a fiery abyss. Despite Rinehart’s fumbling attempts to stop this disaster, it wasn’t until the Erelim showed up that the demon was banished and the portal was closed.
