He was one of the soldiers stationed in Helgen when Alduin attacked during the quest "Unbound." He escaped, but injured his back. To ease the pain, he took to Redwater Skooma, and subsequently became addicted to it.
He is one of the many Redwater Skooma addicts found inside Redwater Den. After the Bloodstone Chalice is filled, while exiting the cave he, along with the other addicts, will be found dead.
