Broken Mountain succumbed to the uncontrollable Rage of the Inner beast, causing almost irreparable damage to his tribe's Warrior reputation across generations. Curious Gorge has followed Broken Mountain's trail, leading to a battle at Wineport (Silver Bazaar in version 1.0), where Broken Mountain is defeated. Not long after, Curious Gorge succumbs to the same affliction and the Warrior of Light must defeat him.
Broken Mountain is recovered and been meticulously studying his people's tomes to discover the secrets of controlling the inner beast. He tries to repair his brother's wounded Warrior spirit who has been saddled with doubt ever since the events at Wineport.
Together with the Warrior of Light and Curious Gorge, Broken Mountain assists in defending Limsa Lominsa from the rising Sahagin threat. Rather than wielding an axe, he uses scholarly abilities. The victory impresses the Storm Marshal Eynzahr who encourages the brothers to train the Maelstrom members in the ways of the Warrior. Their dreams of repairing their tribe's reputation and spreading their ancestor's teachings are realized.
Due to the reputation gained from the Maelstrom, Broken Mountain and Curious Gorge are challenged by an anonymous band of marauders who are none other than a barely disguised Wyrnzoen and his entourage. During the battle one of the marauders is possessed by her inner beast and easily throws Wyrnzoen, Broenbhar and even Curious Gorge into the waters of the pier. Broken Mountain recognizes that she had been taken over by the inner beast and with the help of Warrior of Light, they manage to stop her.
Having regained her senses, the marauder introduces herself as Dorgono of the Qerel clan. The inner beast is not a foreign concept to her people, but they lack the understanding to control it. Because of this, those who are influenced by it are exiled. Broken Mountain readily accepts Dorgono as a new charge but he fears he will not have the time to supervise the novice warriors of the Maelstrom and take care of Dorgono's training. Dorgono does his training while accompanying Broken Mountain on Maeltrom operations against the Mamool Ja and eventually manages to control his inner beast after an ambush by the bestmen.
Broken Mountain is a Hellsguard Roegadyn with reddish skin and bright red hair. Similar in appearance to his younger brother, Curious Gorge, he wears a full set of Warrior battle garb during A Realm Reborn. He wears more scholarly robes and uses a tome in battle during Heavensward.
Introduced as the main antagonist in the beginning of the Warrior questline, Broken Mountain's personality is little more than an enraged warrior prior to his defeat. Heavensward reveals his true personality as a patient and wise elder brother, encouraging his younger sibling's growth as a Warrior. He is wise and cautious.
